Looks like Liam Gallagher had the right idea. Lollapalooza has cancelled the remainder of tonight’s performances, including Lorde’s headlining set, due to an approaching storm, and festivalgoers are being evacuated from Chicago’s Grant Park. “I had the most spectacular show planned for you and i PROMISE i will come back to play it as soon as i can,” Lorde tweeted after being pulled offstage. “looking into the possibilities of a club show but i want you guys to see full tank show. will keep you posted.” Lil Uzi Vert, and Porter Robinson were also scheduled to perform.
