The Rib Round Up, an annual event presented by New Country 103.1 and held at the iTHINK Financial Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Florida was cut short on Saturday (March 7) due to a medical emergency.

The event, which featured performances from Jameson Rodgers, Travis Denning, Matt Stell, Carly Pearce and Michael Ray throughout the day, ended before Chris Janson and Dustin Lynch took the stage. Rib Round Up organizers took to Facebook to share an update and asked everyone to leave the venue.

“There has been a medical emergency with a crew member that will not allow us to proceed with Rib Round Up,” a post to the official event Facebook page reads. “If you are at the show, we kindly ask that you proceed to exit the facility. Thank you.”

South Florida Country Music reports that a lighting operator had a heart attack while operating a light during Michael Ray’s set. According to a local news reporter, the medical emergency occurred with a crew member from the Live Nation team.

Dustin Lynch and Chris Janson shared updates with fans via Twitter and offered prayers to the crew member.

The after-party, which was originally supposed to feature a performance from Jameson Rodgers, has also been cancelled according to the Rib Round Up Facebook page.
