Lorde’s fans were disappointed Thursday after an approaching storm forced the organizers of the Lollapalooza music festival to call off the New Zealand-based singer-songwriter’s gig scheduled for Aug. 3, 8: 45 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. local time (9:45 p.m. to 11: 00 p.m. EDT) at Chicago’s Grant Park.

Thursday’s performances included Lorde, Spoon, Wiz Khalifa, Muse, among others. While Spoon, Wiz Khalifa, and others enthralled the audience by their performances, Lorde and Muse could not perform as they were interrupted by heavy rain, Daily Herald reported.

According to a Chicago Tribune report, the event organizers issued a statement confirming the cancellation of the music festival for the day.

Lorde had just taken the stage and begun her performance when a member of the music festival committee interrupted the singer. Addressing the crowd, he said: “You have to evacuate the park because of lightning.” Lorde's Thursday night gig lasted for about 15 minutes, it was reported.

"I guess the festival has said the weather is too crazy for us to play right now," she told the audience as she walked away, leaving her devoted fans frustrated.

Lollapalooza officials then took to Twitter to announce the cancellation.

Soon after the gig’s cancellation, Lorde, in a series of tweets, expressed displeasure over the turn of events. In one tweet, she wrote she had the most spectacular show planned for her fans.

Matt Bellamy, the lead singer of Muse also expressed disappointment on Twitter, stating he was made to leave the stage after performing just three songs. He termed the entire episode a “nightmare.”

Muse took to Instagram to address their fans and thank them for their love and support. The post read: "Very sad Chicago city & police evacuated Grant Park early on in our show tonight due to lightning strikes nearby. We will be back as soon as we can. Thanks to all those that were rocking in the storm. Amazing fans as always."

Though the first day of the festival didn’t go as expected by many, the second day (Aug. 4) promises to be a fun-filled one with a number of action-packed performances by artists such as The Districts, Jidenna, Phantogram, Run the Jewels, and The Killers.

This was, however, not the first time Lollapalooza Chicago was canceled. Back in 2015, a thunderstorm forced the organizers to call off the music festival, NBC Chicago reported. The Lollapalooza organizers and the Chicago Police Department had urged festival-goers to head to "pre-established underground evacuation and shelter sites along the Michigan Avenue" due to bad weather, it was reported at the time.
