Fire Breaks Out at Keith Urban Concert Site
Fire broke out in the early morning hours on Saturday (July 16) at the concert venue where Keith Urban is scheduled to perform Saturday evening.
According to TV's News12 in Holmdel, N.J., a fire was reported just before 6AM on Saturday at the PNC Bank Arts Center, a popular Garden State concert arena where Urban is slated for a show on his current Ripcord Tour. Firefighters responded to the scene to battle the blaze, which was visible all the way to the Garden State Parkway.
The fire started in a trailer on the left side of the building, near the VIP area, authorities tell News12. No injuries were reported in the incident. Investigators have not yet determined the cause of the fire.
Jersey Shore News reports that the trailer involved was a concession trailer, and says a tanker truck was called to the scene due to low water pressure.
Concert promoter Live Nation had a representative at the venue on Saturday to survey the damage. So far there has been no indication that Urban's concert will be postponed as a result of the fire.
Urban's Ripcord Tour features Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris as his support acts. The superstar, who recently celebrated his 20th No. 1 hit with "Wasted Time," performed in Cleveland on Friday evening. It is unclear if any of his crew were on the scene at the PNC Bank Arts Center when the fire broke out. Urban has not issued a statement about the blaze, or commented on it via social media.
