System-wide electrical problems on July 4 led to severe complications in execution of the annual display causing distortion of the show's music tracks and the crashing of the show's fireworks firing system.
"As partners the Rapids and Commerce City truly regret that we weren't able to provide the quality of fireworks show that our fans and our neighbors here deserve and have come to expect from us on Independence Day said Jeff Plush Managing Director of the Colorado Rapids.
"We apologize for tonight's postgame experience. As I'm sure everyone will agree the safety of our staff and spectators alike has to be first and foremost in our thoughts. While it's regrettable that the decision had to be made to pre-empt the show it's one that we support.
"We invite all Rapids fans and residents of Commerce City to rejoin us on July 25 and allow us to give them the kind of show that they deserve."
There is no charge for fans to watch the fireworks show from outside the stadium on July 25; tickets are needed only to enter the stadium.
