Stampede Saddledome Concerts get Cancelled. Bruno Mars postpones.

Calgary has had a streak of bad luck lately. First we didn't make the playoffs. Then we traded Iggy rendering my Flames jersey void. Then the Great Flood of 2013 followed by the cancellation of Sled Island. Now we are in the middle of a friggin heat wave with rolling blackouts.

If that wasn't enough, the Stampede just announced the cancellation of the Virgin Mobile concert series that was supposed to be held in the Saddledome. Home of the Flames and was 10 rows deep in water as of last Sunday.

Carly Rae Jepsen, KISS, Tim McGraw and The Dixie Chicks were all slated to perform and will now have a little tour break.

BUT WAIT...the bad news does not end there.

Bruno Mars was scheduled to play on July 17 and has announced via his website that the show has been postponed and will be rescheduled. Doable. Undoable: Opening act Ellie Goulding will not be performing in the rescheduled show. What a loss!

OK Universe, when will enough be enough?
