Keith Urban bows out of slated Iowa State Fair performance

Country music fans were disappointed to learn this morning that Keith Urban has cancelled his Aug. 21 performance at the Iowa State Fair due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict. The Iowa State Fair Grandstand will now feature headliners Dan + Shay. Russell Dickerson will remain the opener. Anyone who purchased Keith Urban tickets through the official Iowa State Fair ticket vendor, e-tix, will receive an automatic refund. Current ticket holders will also receive a priority code to purchase tickets if Keith Urban is rescheduled for a future Fair date.
Dan + Shay played to a packed crowd in 2019 at the Fair and are gearing up to get back on the road returning to the Iowa State Fair Grandstand on August 21, 2021. In March, during the COVID pandemic, the group made history as the first to rack up three consecutive GRAMMY awards for Best Country Duo/Group Performance and at the 56th ACM Awards in April the group took home their third straight Duo of the Year title. Show opener Russell Dickerson was a 2019 nominee for Song of the Year. Dickerson is also climbing the country charts now and was recently named People Magazine’s “One to Watch.”
 
Tickets for Dan + Shay with special guest Russell Dickerson go on sale June 10, 2021, at 10 a.m.
