Styx performance at fair canceled

The Shenandoah County Fair performance by rock band Styx has been canceled.

The band was scheduled to perform on Sept. 1 during the 100th anniversary of the Shenandoah County Fair, but had to cancel the show.

A news release from the Shenandoah County Fair Association stated that  the band hopes to reschedule the show during the 2018 fair.

Tickets went on sale March 13 and sold quickly, the release stated, and was on track to be a sell-out performance. All ticket buyers were notified of the cancellation on Wednesday and Thursday. As of Friday, 100 percent of the refunds had been posted.

The fair association is looking to fill the open performance slot on Sept. 1.
