Tonight’s concert at The Big Fresno Fair has been cancelled due to a positive Covid-19 case in the band’s touring crew.
Country act Midland notified fair officials Tuesday night about the cancellation. People who paid for tickets online or by phone with a credit card will see automatic refunds within five business days. Cash ticket purchasers will need to bring their tickets to the fair administration ticket box office the week of Oct. 18 for a refund.
Fair officials offered this statement from the band:
“We are sad to announce that we have to reschedule Wednesday’s show in Fresno, CA – even though we are a fully vaccinated tour, we had a positive test in our touring entity. In an effort to keep our band, crew, fans, and families safe, we are following a strict testing protocol and won’t be cleared to be back on the road in time for this performance.”
“We are incredibly disappointed to have Midland cancel their show at our Fair tonight as they were our top-selling concert and we know many from our community were looking forward to seeing them perform live for the first time ever in Fresno. However, the health and safety of all is the top priority and we respect their decision. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience to our Fairgoers and hope you all will still join us for a great night at the 2021 Big Fresno Fair,” said Lauri King, Deputy Manager II, The Big Fresno Fair.
