Some of music’s biggest names descended on New York City’s iconic Central Park for the “We Love NYC: The Homecoming Concert” on Saturday to perform for a vaccinated crowd of 60,000.

The concert was meant to be “a celebration of New York City’s comeback” after a challenging 17 months marked by the Covid-19 pandemic and to “promote health, safety, and equity,” according to a news release for the show. It aired exclusively on CNN.

Nearly three hours after the event started, attendees were evacuated due to severe weather ahead of Hurricane Henri’s anticipated Sunday landfall.
