The roof at Merriweather Post Pavilion collapsed last night. The roof is in the process of being raised but nobody was working on it at the time, Audrey Fix Schaefer, communications director for the venue, told Baltimore Fishbowl, and there were no injuries, “which is the most important thing of all.”*
A full assessment is underway, Schaefer said, and concert promoter I.M.P., which operates the Frank Gehry-designed pavilion, will rebuild the roof.
“The 2018 concert season will go on as planned!” said Schaefer.
Seth Hurwitz, chairman at I.M.P., released this statement.
