I wasn't there, saw some of it on CNN, but how can you deny the strength of the metaphor? The concert was created to symbolize the end of the pandemic, planned during that period of optimism when we thought we were nearing the end. To have it cut short by lightning is almost too literary in its metaphor for the new challenges the delta variant has created.

I'd be surprised if someone hasn't already created one of those "My fall plans / The delta variant" memes with the crowds at the start of the concert, then the crowds fleeing the lightning.
