An open air AIDS charity concert in Austria, which was set to include performances from R&B star and burlesque dancer , was cut short on Saturday, July 17 after a thunderstorm ripped through the area.

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton and actress were also due to take to the stage for the Austrian Life Ball outside the Vienna city hall to help raise funds for victims of the disease. But appearances by the stars had to be skipped after officials issued a weather warning and forced organizers to clear the square where the show was taking place.

The concert, which is held annually, was part of the run up to an international AIDS conference in the city set for Sunday, July 18.
