"From the Vans Warped Tour team, the bands, and all of our sponsors, we are truly sorry that this had to happen."
The Wilmington, North Carolina date of Vans Warped Tour has been cancelled.
"To all our fans - it is never easy to do this, but due to circumstances beyond our control we have been forced to cancel the 7.04 Wilmington, NC show," said a statement on the Warped Tour website.
"From the Vans Warped Tour team, the bands, and all of our sponsors, we are truly sorry that this had to happen. We were working with HUKA Entertainment as our partner and the officials of the city of Wilmington, NC decided to not enter into a contractual agreement with Huka Production, LLC of North Carolina to ensure that the show would play out."
"This decision was based on a few concerns that included the venue’s ability to meet the logistical challenge of our tour, as nothing of that large of a scale has been done at the sports complex before."

“It is unfortunate we are unable to hold the Warped Tour at Legion Stadium as we had worked for months to try and make it happen," said Wilmington's City Communications Manager Malissa Talbert.
"However, events held at city facilities must be hosted by groups with the ability to provide safety for concert goers as well as financial viability for ticket buyers. We hope we can host similar events here in the future.”
