MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. – With record levels of rainfall Tuesday in the St. Louis region and more expected over the next few days, scheduled events around town will be up in the air as businesses wait and see how the floodwaters recede.
The Pattonville Fire Protection District responded to the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre and observed rising floodwaters at the concert venue, extending from the pit area to several rows. The stage itself is fine due to its high elevation.
It is unclear what the plan is for the concerts scheduled for this weekend. The Backstreet Boys are slated to perform Saturday evening and pop group Big Time Rush appearing on Sunday.
LiveNation, which owns the venue, has responded to a request for comment.
St. Louis County Executive Sam Page declared a state of emergency Tuesday afternoon to seek federal recovery assistance.
