Smoke Forces Cancellation of Josh Ritter Concert in Sun Valley

Posted By on Wed, Aug 14, 2013 at 3:34 PM


The wildfires in Central Idaho have claimed another victim—the Josh Ritter and the Royal City Band concert scheduled for tonight in Sun Valley has officially been canceled due to air quality concerns.

The Sun Valley Center for the Arts made the call this afternoon after days of heavy smoke rolling into the Wood River Valley.

Here's the release the Center posted to news outlets:

Sun Valley Center for the Arts regrets that due to hazardous air quality caused by the Beaver Creek Fire, the concert tonight with Josh Ritter and the Royal City Band has been canceled. We believe that this is the best decision to be made for our patrons, our artists, our staff, and our community. This decision was not made lightly and we appreciate your patience as time was taken so that a well-informed decision could be made.The Center is in conversation now with Josh and his management team about the possibility of rescheduling the event. Due to the band’s travel schedule, this will take a bit of time to negotiate.

Those who have tickets for the show can hold on to them with hopes they can be used at a later date, ask for a full refund or convert the cost of the ticket into a tax-exempt donation. The Center will notify ticket holders when and if the show can be rescheduled.
