Due to a LiveNation crew member suffering from a medical emergency at the iTHINK Financial Ampitheatre, the 10th annual Rib Round Up was ended Saturday night before the final two acts, Chris Janson and Dustin Lynch, could take the stage.

Two different sources told WPTV the man may have suffered a heart issue.

WIRK New Country 103.1 says they were told by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office that the show could continue, but out of respect to the crew member's family, the radio station decided to end the event at that time.

A Hubbard Radio spokesperson said, "There has been a medical emergency with a crew member that will not allow us to proceed with Rib Round Up. If you are at the show, we kindly ask that you proceed to exit the facility. Thank you."

The after parties have been canceled for the Rib Round Up.

WPTV is on scene, and will be bring the latest details as they develop.
