A tour bus fire in Philadelphia won’t hinder today’s Styx and Foreigner performances in Scranton, concert promotion company Live Nation confirmed Thursday.


The fire struck two buses belonging to the classic rock groups just after noon in a parking lot near Penn’s Landing in Center City on Wednesday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.


Live Nation said the bands were still scheduled to play in Camden, New Jersey, Thursday before heading to the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain.


Multiple Philadelphia news reports indicate the buses were empty at the time of the fire and no one was injured.


The popularity of both acts peaked during the 1970s and 1980s.
