Luke Bryan concert relocated to State FairgroundsPosted: Updated:
The Luke Bryan farm tour is no match for Mother Nature.
The country music star's concert, scheduled for a farm near Douglass, Kansas, is being moved to the State Fairgrounds in Hutchinson. The concert will be held Friday.
Bryan's planned Thursday concert in Louisburg was postponed due to wet conditions. Areas near Douglass have received more than three inches of rain in the past 48 hours.
The "farm tour" website shows parking will begin at 2:00, with doors opening at 5:00 and the show at 6:00. All previously purchased tickets and parking passes will be honored. Contact email@example.com with any concerns or questions.
The city of Louisburg says that country singer Luke Bryan's Farm Tour show on Thursday has been canceled.
The concert was set to take place on a farm near 255th Street and Pflumm Road. WDAF reports city officials looked into alternative locations, but "it was determined that they were also too wet to have the concert." Bryan plans to reschedule the show.
The country singer said earlier Thursday that due to the heavy rain, his crew is unable to unload the equipment needed to put on the show.
