LOUISBURG - The Luke Bryan Farm Tour concert that was scheduled to take place Thursday, Oct. 3, on a farm northwest of Louisburg has been postponed due to the recent heavy rains.
Bryan posted on his Twitter page Thursday morning that “Due to heavy rain leading up to today causing wet conditions on the farm, we are unable to load in the equipment needed to put on tonight’s Farm Tour show in Louisburg, KS. For more information, stay tuned.”
People should hold on to their tickets, though. Luke Bryan told city of Louisburg officials the concert will be rescheduled.
"Alternate locations were looked at and it was determined that they were also too wet to have the concert," according to the city of Louisburg. "Hold on to those tickets, Luke plans on rescheduling. We do not have any dates as of now but follow his website at lukebryan.com/farmtour for up to date information."
It’s the second week in a row Bryan has been forced to postpone a Farm Tour concert due to weather. On Friday, Sept. 27, Bryan was forced to postpone a Farm Tour date in Richland, Mich., due to severe weather. He later Tweeted a video promising to pick a new date and return to Richland.
Bryan is scheduled to perform in Douglass, Kan., on Friday, Oct., 4, and in Norman, Okla., on Saturday, Oct. 5.
Thursday night’s concert was going to take place at MC Farms, located northwest of Louisburg at 13703 W. 255th St. The venue is near the corner of West 255th Street and Pflumm Road — just south of Chiles Airpark.
The event was expected to draw thousands of people to the area.
Bryan’s tour has raised money for college scholarships for students of farm families. To date, more than 60 scholarships have been granted, according to the website.
