A day after the Cruel World Festival in Pasadena was evacuated, Goldenvoice announced a make up show for Sunday, May 21.

The Sunday show will feature an extended set from Siouxsie, who did not have an opportunity to perform Saturday, as well as sets from Iggy Pop, Gary Numan and Club Doom Dave.

The Saturday evacuation of Brookside at the Rose Bowl came moments after a severe weather alert from the National Weather Service, warning of lighting in the area, as well as possible 50 mph winds in the area.

“At the direction of the Pasadena Fire Department, the venue was evacuated on Saturday evening (5/20) due to unsafe weather conditions and lightning strikes in the area, verified by the National Weather Service,” a letter to guests said. “Siouxsie, Iggy Pop and Gary Numan will be back at Brookside at the Rose Bowl today (5/21) with Siouxsie performing an extended set. This will be her only North American performance in 2023.”

Stage screens were used to ask guests to head for the nearest exit and find shelter outside of the festival grounds.

The National Weather Service said it was monitoring a storm over the San Gabriel Mountains, which extend to the Pasadena area. While a flood advisory was given, no evacuation alerts have been given as of this writing, and it is not clear if the advisory will extend to the evening show.

Guests with Saturday passes will be able to use them for entry Sunday, with parking being provided free of charge.

Doors to the Sunday make-up show will open at 5 p.m.
