Following Tim McGraw's announcement yesterday that he was cancelling his 2020 tour, the Minnesota State Fair has announced that his show has been postponed until 2021.

While not official at this point, State Fair representatives are working to secure a Tim McGraw grandstand date for the 2021 'Great Minnesota Get Together.'

Midland was set to appear with Tim McGraw.

Tim McGraw announced that his 2020 tour is canceled. The Minnesota State Fair is working to reschedule the show to the 2021 fair. If you have already purchased tickets, your ticket will be valid for the 2021 date, and you will keep your same seat location. No action is required.

Yesterday Tim McGraw issued the following statement on his website:

I hope my live shows are proof enough of how much I absolutely love performing for you guys. I’m so sad to have to cancel this year’s Here on Earth Tour but everyone’s safety has to be the top priority. We’re working with our teams to figure out when and how we can get back out on the road and see you all safely. In the meantime, we’re looking for some new ways to connect with you and get more music out.

Now let's hope the rest of the 2020 Minnesota State Fair is able to go on.

Pete Hanson is on 98.1 Minnesota's New Country weekday mornings from 5:30 to 10:00.
