Thousands of excited Taylor Swift fans were forced out of their seats at Lincoln Financial Field Saturday night due to a severe thunderstorm.

The Country music superstar performed at the Linc Friday night and performed again on Saturday. Heavy rain as well as lightning delayed Saturday night’s concert however and forced concertgoers to leave their seats and move to the concourse area.

Around 10:30 p.m. they were allowed back into their seats as the rain moved out.

The lightning cancelled the Electric Run, a 5K run in Philadelphia, according to twitter followers. The race organizers have not confirmed the cancellation however.

The storm also led to power outages in several parts of the area.
