ATLANTA -- Officials at the Tabernacle say Saturday's concert is cancelled and structural engineers are implementing an "immediate action plan"
Officials spent the entire night Friday at the concert venue investigating the floor, which cracked during Panic At The Disco's performance.
Two songs in, the floor started to move and organizers evacuated the building. No one was injured.
Saturday afternoon Tabernacle officials released this statement:

Tonight's Corey Smith show has been reschedule for Saturday, May 10th. Tickets for the original February 8th date will be honored. Please hold on to them. Panic! at The Disco ticket holders can get refunds at their point of purchase. We will release more details as they become available.

Atlanta Fire spokesperson Janet Ward says fire marshalLt. Ulysses Gladden was making his rounds when he noticed a stage light moving in the area between the merchandise area and the stage. The ceiling of the merchandise area is the floor of the stage.
The stage floor was bouncing down about a foot and he could see joists that he should not have been able to see.
After showing the damage to Tabernacle security and management, he called for an evacuation because the affected area was where the band was.
Afterward, Panic at the Disco lead singer Brendon Urie tweeted, "Damn. That was crazy. Glad everyone's ok, even though it still sucks we can't play. We'll see your beautiful faces in the summer."
