(Columbia, SC) Cola Concerts has delayed the launch of its live music and comedy series due to the severe weather forecasted this week. The storms pose a serious threat to the health and safety of the staff and guests at the Columbia Speedway Entertainment Center. Cola Concerts will now launch Monday, November 16 at 7:00 PM with a special free showing of the family-friendly movie Cars.


“While it is obviously a disappointment to have to delay the opening, we will always put the safety of our guests, bands and staff first,” said Adam Epstein, Co-Founder of Cola Concerts. “We will have a start-of-the-art concert venue, unlike anything else in the Midlands, ready to go on Monday once the dangerous weather has passed.”


In addition to the showing of Cars, Cola Concerts will also be offering a free showing of Jurassic Park on Tuesday, November 17. The Shovels & Rope performance scheduled for Saturday, November 14 has been rescheduled to Friday, March 19. Any tickets already purchased or reserved for these events will be valid for the new date.
