Storm projected to blow out before McGraw concert

BANGOR, Maine — Current weather predictions show Hurricane Earl moving out in time for country artist Tim McGraw to take the stage Saturday night on the Bangor Waterfront without fear of strong winds or rain, but just in case, concert organizers have said they will post any changes or cancellations to their website early Saturday at

McGraw and special guest Brett Eldredge are slated to take the stage at 7:30 p.m. with gates opening at 6 p.m. Their show was listed among the Top 20 Concert Tours this week by Pollstar with an average box office gross of $604,381 and average ticket price for shows in North America coming in at $44.54.

As a reminder, concertgoers on the Bangor Waterfront are encouraged to come prepared with rain gear such as ponchos and hats because umbrellas are not permitted.

Several readers have inquired about bringing cameras. According to the organizer’s website, the safe bet is to leave them at home or in your car because most acts don’t provide information on whether they’ll allow photos until the day of show, and each act is different.

Also, will-call tickets will be available at the local box office located next to the main gate where Railroad and Summer streets meet starting at 2 p.m. the day of the show.
