SLIDESHOW: Thunderstorms can't stop O.A.R. at Artpark

When fans arrived at Artpark they were urged to return to their cars due to oncoming thunderstorms that organizers feared would force them to cancel Wednesday's concert. 

However after a brief delay Artpark announced on the social networks that the show would go on. With limited time, O.A.R. played a blistering set packed with fan favorites and unreleased songs. 

The band even added "This Town" to the set, a rarity for their performances. Readers may have noticed that during Thom Jenning's interview with bassist Benj Gershman that appeared in an earlier issue, Jennings requested the song as it is one of his personal favorites. 

Although time didn't allow for an encore, the crowd was more than pleased with the rousing performance, and many fans left hoping O.A.R. would return to Artpark once again.
