Irving Music Factory, an entertainment complex that was expected to welcome A-list names onto its stage Aug. 31 and into Labor Day Weekend, will not host its first six shows as planned.

The anticipated music venue was expected to open with a two-night comedy event starring Dave Chappelle on Aug. 31 and Sept. 1. Chappelle’s gigs have been canceled and rescheduled, and Irving Music Factory’s following four events in early September have been pulled off of the Irving calendar, too: Brad Paisley, Sept. 2; Larry the Cable Guy and Jeff Foxworthy, Sept. 3; Lifehouse, Sept. 4; and Goo Goo Dolls, Sept. 6.

The venue had previously announced the cancellation of the Larry and Jeff comedy show, saying it was because of Hurricane Harvey, which hit about 250 miles south of the Dallas area.

A statement from LiveNation says the delayed opening is because of construction. A LiveNation spokesperson declined to comment further.

“It is with regret that we apologize to our patrons; however, it is important that we deliver a first-class venue experience,” the statement reads.

Irving Music Factory is instead expected to open Sept. 9 with a ZZ Top concert.

Despite this major hiccup in Irving Music Factory’s opening weekend, the venue and its promoters have booked impressive talent for the coming months. The venue is expected to host Kiss, the Flaming Lips, Harry Styles, Chris Rock, Bill and Hillary Clinton and many more. See the lineup here.
