The Perry band show in Maryland was postponed over a "security concern."

Police are asking for help finding two men who they said made threatening comments before the country music group The Band Perry was scheduled to play Sunday at a Selbyville, Del., venue. The sold-out concert was postponed because of the incident.

The men made the statements at about 2:55 p.m. to an employee at the Americana Bayside Welcome Center, Delaware State Police Master Cpl. Gary Fournier said in a statement. The area is near The Freeman Stage at Bayside, where the band was set to play at 7:30 p.m.

Fournier said “due to heightened security concerns and for the safety of the public” it was decided the show would be canceled. Officials have not indicated what the men said.

Operators of the venue in a statement said organizers met with state and local authorities and the band’s management and decided to call off the show. It was rescheduled to Aug. 17. Those who had bought tickets also can get refunds.

About 2,400 people were expected at the venue, an open-air performing arts space that opened in summer 2008.
The Band Perry on social media in a post to fans said, "While we are sad we don't get to see you tonight, we love you and consider your well-being and security our top priority. We'll see you soon."
The cancellation was announced about 15 minutes before opening act Melissa Alesi took the stage, said Alyson Cunningham, spokeswoman for the Joshua M. Freeman Foundation, which organized the concert.

Cunningham said officials would not talk about the nature of the threat and referred questions to police. Fournier said specific details will not be released to avoid jeopardizing the investigation.

State Police on Monday released surveillance photos of two white men they said made the statements, one wearing a green T-shirt and shorts, and the other wearing a purple T-shirt and blue shorts. Police said they are between 20 and 30 years old.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
