The Band Perry’s Concert Postponed Due To Security Concerns

Security concerns forced The Band Perry to postpone their scheduled show in Selbyville, Delaware, on Sunday (7/3). According to the Delaware News Journal, two men made “alarming statements” to a front-desk employee at the Bayside resort’s welcome center which led to a joint decision by local authorities, event organizers, and the band’s management to call off the show. Officials haven’t shared what the two men said to the employee to cause the alarm. The Band Perry released a statement on Facebook that said the concert had been postponed due to “heightened security concerns” and has been rescheduled for August 17. Their message then said, “While we are sad we don’t get to see you tonight, we love you and consider your well-being and security our top priority. We’ll see you soon.”
One of the men – 35-year-old Dzmitry N. Papou — turned himself into authorities on Monday night (7/4) after photos of him and another man were released by local media. Papou was charged with felony terroristic threatening and was released on bail. Authorities say the second man has been identified, but hasn’t been arrested yet.
