The Band Perry Cancel Concert After Receiving ‘Violent’ Threats


By: Jon Corrigan

The Band Perry aren’t taking any chances.

The country trio pulled the plug on a performance in Delaware on Sunday night after two unidentified men made threats against the venue.

TMZ reports, “two men walked into the Americana Bayside Welcome Center and made ‘alarming statements’ to an employee at the front desk.”

The statements were allegedly threats of violence.

The Bend Perry decided to cancel just 15 minutes before the show was scheduled to begin.  They rescheduled the gig for August 17.

One suspect, Dzmitry N. Papou, 35, turned himself into authorities on Monday night. He was charged with felony terroristic threatening and released on a $20,000 unsecured bail.

The other suspect has been identified by police, but has not yet been taken into custody.
