Hurricane Sandy Shuts Down Rita Ora and John Legend Concerts

John-Legend-Rita-Ora

Multiple performers, including Rita Ora, John Legend and Louis C.K. have been forced to cancel or postpone their gigs as Hurricane Sandy gets set to hit the East Coast.

While "Frankenstorm" prepares to hit it's stride the music and comedy community in the tri-state area are preparing for what could be the worst storm to ever hit America.

Legend, 33, canceled his Sunday performance at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn amidst a flurry of severe weather warnings.

Louis C.K., 45, also rescheduled his show at Manhattan's City Center until March 2 and said people's safety was his main concern.

"It it's any consolation, I'm eating a pretty staggering fee for canceling the show," the comedian said in a statement on his website. "But I can take it. What I can't take is the thought that there's a CHANCE 4.300 people will be in danger trying to get home from my stupid show."

Ora, 21, canceled her show - part of her MTV Presents: The ORA Tour - at the Trocadero in Philadelphia while other performers such as Mos Def and Ghostface Killah also canceled their gigs.

New York and New Jersey government officials have warned locals to stay indoors unless absolutely necessary.
