Thunderstorms predicted for Saturday

I know it's still early and a lot can change between now and Saturday but they're currently predicting thunderstorms for Saturday (don't know if it's during the day or night).  I don't attend many concerts so, what is the rain policy?  Play if it's not too bad?  Reschedule if it's bad?

The weather will most likely change. As of right now it's not that high of a chance. The band will play in the rain, but if there is a thunderstorm the concert will most likely be postponed until the storm passes. I don't know what would happen if it's supposed to storm all night. Once there is the clear to resume they'll go back on. The stadium, or at least the floor, will likely clear out and head for cover which will probably cause chaos for the people who are very concerned with getting their same spot back. This same thing happened back when PJ played Wrigley.

It seems to change every time I look at the forecast. First, there was a 30% chance of light rain throughout the day with very little chance through the evening. Then, the chance of rain increased through the night. When I looked last night, it was a 60% chance of strong thunderstorms all damn day and all damn night. When I checked this morning, it had been downgraded to light showers in the evening. The wife and I are driving in from just outside Toronto, and because the weather changes every time I look at it, I think I'll just stop checking the weather next time it's calling for anything remotely hospitable, lol.

Yes, I've been told that weather in Chicago can be very unpredictable, but hopefully everyone can wish the rain away.  But be prepared.  Take a cheap poncho, in case it does rain.

As of a few minutes ago it was 80% chance of rain on Saturday and 70% chance of rain on Sunday. Thunderstorms on Saturday. I think they are both going to be long nights. Get lots of rest folks you're going to need it.

I was at a show in Minnesota for the 360 Tour and it poured the entire time. They had these special covers that came out and shielded their gear from the rain. They never once stopped playing. Not 1 person left. The energy was incredible. They even had fun with it singing verses from Purple Rain and Singing In The Rain. Yes everyone was soaked to the bone but it was one of the best shows I have seen them do. Just bring a dry bag or a ziplock for your phone and wallet and have the mindset before hand that you will get soaked and you will have an amazing time.
