Despite flooding at the Amphitheater in Perkins Park in Warren, the show will go on for concert goers this weekend.

The River Rock at the Amp show Saturday night will be held as scheduled.

The flood waters have started to recede in the park and while the amphitheater structure was not impacted by flooding, crews have been busy cleaning up the surrounding area in preparation for Saturday’s concert.

Organizer Ken Haidaris said this isn’t the first time the area was flooded, and they anticipate the flood waters to recede quickly.

“It happened opening day two years ago, right before opening day,” said Haidaris. “We were like, Oh man, and the next thing you know it looks like someone pulled the plug out of a bathtub and where did it go?”

Three bands will take the stage Saturday. Abbey Road, a tribute to the Beatles, will begin at 5 p.m. Evil Ways, a tribute to Santana, will begin at 6 p.m. Headliner Draw the Line, an Aerosmith cover band, will begin at 8:30 pm.
