Hurricane Sandy, the historic storm that has caused evacuations, transportation shutdowns, and powerful winds before making landfall somewhere between central New Jersey and southern Delaware Monday night (October 29), has forced the cancellation of several performances along the Eastern Seaboard. Shows by the xx, Cat Power, Ghostface Killah, Grimes, and John Legend are among hundreds of events already impacted by the storm. Billboard estimates that the cancellations may cost promoters and venues millions of dollars in lost marketing and promotion expenses, on top of any damage incurred by the properties.

The "Frankenstorm" puts at risk an estimated 50 million people who reside between North Carolina and New England, and safety comes first. As stand-up comedian Louis C.K. put it in an open letter to fans announcing the postponement of his October 28 show: "I know that a lot of people are excited to come and and they are fine taking the chance but I really don't want a pole to smash your face in because you saw some comedy."
