GOP convention briefs: Lynyrd Skynyrd concert off as RNC tent comes down [View all]

TAMPA —

As quickly as crews set up a massive tent city for Republican National Convention concerts and VIPs, they started tearing down much of it Sunday afternoon as Tropical Storm Isaac neared the Gulf of Mexico.

Already, the Lynyrd Skynyrd concert Sunday night was canceled, and others might be, depending on the conditions.

“The main tent can withstand 90-mph winds, but we want everyone to be safe,” said Rob Jennings, president of American Event Consulting, which built a massive entertainment village near the convention site at the Tampa Bay Times Forum for concerts with Kid Rock, Journey and others.

Other concerts and events are still on track for the pavilion, Jennings said.
