Inclement weather caused delays for the Foreigner concert last night which caused thousands, including reporter Jordan Pederson - to seek shelter.
(Concert Emcee) "Please welcome Foreigner"
The band opened up with the hit song Double Vision...
It was a strong beginning to what looked to be a great rock concert.
But halfway through double vision.. storm clouds rolled over the grandstands forcing over 8,000 fans to take cover and wait out the storm.
(Concert Attendee) "It is really crammed. It is really hot back here too."
(Concert Attendee) "It is terrible in here."
(Concert Attendee) "Hopefully everyone will be nice and not get into any fights in here."
(Concert Attendee) "We should be enjoying a concert right now."
(Concert Attendee) "You can expect this in the summertime. It will clear off right away."
(Concert Attendee) "Typical North Dakota weather again, you just never know what you are going to get. I hope it blows over and would love to see the concert tonight, excited to see it."
(Concert Attendee) "I think it will pass and we will go back out there and they will start the show again.
(Concert Attendee) "Oh I think the show will go on. It will blow over."
But as the saying goes... The show must go on...
and that it did

The evacuation plan at the fairgrounds looks for a certain wind speed, which is why they made the call to move everyone indoors.
Korslien says Foreigner was easy to work with and they were happy to play their full set when it was safe.
