ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Thousands of concert-goers had their fingers crossed Sunday night that they'd finally get to see a concert that was canceled when a powerful storm hit the metro area in late July.
But, what is it about country singer Luke Bryan that brings on the rain? Perhaps it's his song “Rain is a Good Thing.”
The last time the country music star was supposed to perform in Albuquerque, concert-goers saw some of the heaviest rain the city has ever seen.
The concert was canceled and Bryan's fans were forced to run for cover.
“We knew we had to get out of there,” said Wes DeVilbiss.
DeVilbiss was one of many people who had to have his windows replaced after the July 26 storm some people dubbed “Hurricane Luke.”
Bryan made a promise to come back and perform Sept. 22, but the skies opened up again.
And once again, concert fans had to run for cover.
At least some fans saw the humor, writing on Twitter: "Dear Luke Bryan - could we book you every time we have a drought?" and “It's just not meant to be for Luke Bryan to have a concert in Albuquerque."
Doppler Radar shows just how powerful Sunday's storm was. A long stretch of thunderstorms that blanketed the metro was enough to delay the Luke Bryan concert for 30 minutes to an hour.
The good news was, this time the country star took the stage.
On July 26, Luke Bryan sent a tweet saying the rain and the cancelation of the concert had him "freakin’ bummed."
On Sunday, he sent a tweet thanking Albuquerque concert fans for their patience.
