A power outage left 1,300 Woodinville residents without power and also cut short the sold-out Bonnie Raitt/Mavis Staples concert at , according to those attending.
“We were at the Bonnie (Raitt) concert last night at the St. Michelle winery and at about 9:20 - all the power went off with a big sizzle," Martha Tyler told Patch in an email. "The show was over, many were disappointed."
She also said as they drove home they noticed many neighborhoods seemed to be without power.
A tree branch on a power line caused the power outage, according to Puget Sound Energy.
The power officially went out at 9:17 p.m. near 14335 132nd Ave. NE, PSE officials said. They say the cause was a tree branch on a power line in that vicinity.
Nika Manfredi said she was at the when the outage occurred.
"Fortunately, they have their own generator and lots of candles," she posted on Woodinville Patch's Facebook page.
Power was restored at 10:28 p.m.
Kika Baa posted on the Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery Facebook page after the concert ended, asking for reimbursement information.
"Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery, Please tell us how you will be reimbursing patrons of the Bonnie Raitt concert than ended so abruptly!!!! Love the venue and Bonnie!!!! Please make it right!"
Chris Mallott wrote on their page, "Ha! Show ended early anyway. A bit unexpected, but Mavis Staples was wonderful! Bonnie was great too, just suffered from power outage. Great time regardless..."
Patch is checking with the winery to find out if any patrons will be reimbursed. According to their website:
"Tickets are non-refundable except in the event of a cancellation, and then tickets are refundable at the original point of purchase only."
Were you there? What were you told as the concert ended? Do you think concertgoers should get a refund or a ticket to another show?
