The organizers only had twenty-nine days to find a new site for the concert and get everything ready. Chip Monck stated, “The thing is that it was such a short time. It was particularly difficult to try and re-create what we had in design.

And obviously, as you know, no ticket booths, no fences, no staging roof, no ability to hang the light show, no ability to hang the six hundred and fifty thousand watts that were underneath the stage, no ability to build a secure barrier, which was a great help in a strange way. Lots of things were missing.”
