Police are investigating a bomb threat at Noel Gallagher's Saturday night concert in New York.
Gallagher was performing with his band, High Flying Birds, at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, with co-headliner Garbage and opening act Metric. After the first two sets, a message appeared onscreen that read:
"ATTENTION! At this time, we will need to evacuate the venue. We ask that you calmly proceed to the nearest EXIT. Please follow directions of staff and police officers. For the safety of everyone, please do NOT rush or push. Thank you for your cooperation."
K9s completed a sweep of the venue but nothing was found.
According to multiple reports, Metric and Garbage completed their opening sets, but the High Flying birds got their wings clipped when the site was abruptly evacuated just ahead of their headline slot.
