PORTLAND, Ore. —The Portland Police Bureau says that a bomb threat at a nearby venue in downtown Portland on Monday night,10 April 2023, forced Sabrina Carpenter to cancel her show there.
Carpenter’s show at the Keller Auditorium in downtown Portland was stopped before it started because an unknown caller said they would blow up the Crystal Ballroom, which was where Carpenter was supposed to play.
“I can’t tell you how much it breaks my heart, this is the last thing I wanted to do, but due to unforeseen circumstances, we will not be able to perform tonight,” Carpenter shared on her Twitter page after the cancellation.
Before, the 23-year-old artist had to move to a bigger space to fit more people.
Monday at 5:38 p.m., a worker at the Crystal Ballroom called 911 to say that an unknown caller had made the threat. Due to the threat, Portland police said they talked to both places and put on extra checks around both sites on Monday night.
