    Wouldn't call this surprising or "OMG BREAKING!", but did want to confirm in case anyone thought "NEW" was just PR Speak. It is an entirely new show.

    So I now they set up a small stage across from the big is this because it's going to take them a while to set up the real stage or you think they might not set it back up at all

    It'll most likely come back, it went down for a few days last year because of Hurricane Matthew but it came back a couple days after

    They were indeed on that small stage. They opened with some visual gags blaming the fact they had to have a shortened show on the smaller stage on Irma. The show was shorter than last year with no background to project against and no multi-level stage to perform on. Not their fault, I just hope they had planned a fuller show for when they get back on the larger stage. Referenced with the bg music (Queen's "The Show Must Go On" - the last song on the last album right before Freddy died).

    Show was otherwise great with high energy. Highlight was the contortionist guy.

    If there's damage, the only thing that would be damaged is the actual truss. Since the towers were up during the storm, the winds could have damaged them somehow and it may require replacing them. While it wouldn't take long to do it, it may be a lower priority to the zones.

    (Unless they left the chain-motors out and they got damaged, which would be stupid. But unsurprising, this year.)

    I'm going to be disappointed if I can't see the full show by Sunday night. I only have this weekend.

    Just walked past, looks like they're setting up a second temporary stage where the permanent one should go.

    Looks like they changed the set altogether, to something of a mix between the overhang stage and the temp stage...which begs another question,

    WHAT HAPPENED TO THE OVERHANG STAGE!?!? I have to think that at this point, something more severe has happened to it due to the hurricane that has caused it to go OoC for the rest of the event.

    It twisted in the storm and was deemed unsafe.

    EDIT - Here's all my stuff on what happened.
