Kelsea Ballerini cancels Illinois State Fair Show

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WMBD) — There is only one way to rock at the Illinois State Fair in 2021.

Sammy Hagar & The Circle will play at the Illinois Lottery Grandstand Stage Thursday, Aug. 12. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 22 on Ticketmaster.com.

The group has been one of rock music’s most dynamic and prolific artists since their 2019 debut album “Space Between,” which debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200 chart and #1 in four Billboard charts including Top Rock Albums and Hard Rock Albums charts.

Band members include Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Sammy Hagar, bassist Michael Anthony, drummer Jason Bonham, and guitarist Vic Johnson.

However, the news also comes with a cancelation. The Illinois State Fair also announced Kelsea Ballerini has canceled her stop at the fair. Ballerini was scheduled to perform with Kylie Morgan and Chapel Heart on Friday, Aug. 20.

Those who purchased Kelsea Ballerini tickets directly through www.Ticketmaster.com or through the Ticketmaster mobile app will get an automatic refund back to the card used to purchase the tickets.
