Come in From The Rain

August 21st, 2021 – Barry Manilow is onstage at We Love NYC: The Homecoming Concert in Central Park.  Lightning strikes during “Can’t Smile Without You”, and he’s pulled off stage.  Prior to the show being cancelled due to Hurricane Henri, Earth, Wind & Fire had performed.  At least Barry only had to deal with Earth and Wind!

This reminded me of July 21st, 1983 – Diana Ross stands onstage, also in Central Park.  The winds are howling, the rains are falling, the lightning is striking, and Miss Ross is saying, “It took me a lifetime to get here…” when officials call off the show and basically force a drenched Diana offstage.  All in all, Manilow got off easy.
