Ciara backstage at Chastain Park Ampitheater in Atlanta (July 12th 2009)

Inclement weather in Atlanta Sunday night (Jul 12) forced Jay-Z and Ciara to cancel their concert last night at Chastain Park Amphiteater. The thunder and rain wasn’t the problem, we hear. It was the lightening! And the seats at Chastain Park are made of metal, so yeah … that would NOT have been a good look.

Our friend FreddyO was able to catch up with Ciara and take a few pictures though:

Ciara told me how she was just getting over the flu when Jay-Z walked in (he had just got off a private jet). I have to say that he was so cool and laid back, I would have gotten pictures but I didn’t have my camera at the time. Jay tried to speak to everyone that was in the room. CiCi was the opening act and Jay Z was going to be joined by Memphis Bleek and Free Way. The concert does not have a new date as of now in Atlanta because Jay-Z was supposed to come back in the fall when his album drops.
