The Black Eyed Peas disappointed several thousand fans last week when poor weather conditions forced the group was to cancel a performance in Central Park in New York. More than 20,000 fans were in attendance for the show, which was to benefit the Robin Hood Foundation’s anti-poverty initiative.

There were reports of lightning strikes in the performance area.

“As much as we hate poverty, we hate the idea of putting anyone’s safety at risk,” The Robin Hood foundation said in a statement. “Which was why, due to inclement weather, the Concert 4 NYC presented by Chase was officially cancelled by the City of New York. At Robin Hood we aren’t quitters. We’ll never stop fighting poverty.”

Reps for the organization promised to reschedule the event.
