Lady A Cancels Tour…New Announcement Coming Soon for South Dakota State Fair


HURON, S.D. – Lady A has cancelled the remainder of their 2022 tour, including their show at the South Dakota State Fair scheduled for Sunday, September 4. In light of this recent announcement, South Dakota State Fair officials are working diligently with their talent agency to find a new headliner.


Lady A released:


We have decided to postpone our Request Line Tour until next year. Being on the road with our fans is our greatest joy, so it was a hard but important decision to make.


We are a band, but more importantly…we’re family. We’re proud to say that Charles has embarked on a journey to sobriety. So, right now in order to be the healthiest, strongest and most creative band we can be, Lady A will take the time with the support of our families and team of professionals to walk through this together. It’s early on this road, but we are determined to do what will best set us up for many more years together. We’re grateful for your patience.


This update is coming in real time, but in the coming days, your point of purchase will be in touch with new ticket information. We’re looking forward to making 2023 our best year yet!


With love, Lady A


“Our goal is for everyone to have an amazing State Fair experience,” says Fair Manager Peggy Besch. “We know concerts are a big part of fair week, but we have no control over a situation such as this. While disappointed, we are working with industry leaders and look forward to replacing Lady A with another great concert. We ask that everyone bear with us as we work through our options and hope to make an announcement very soon.”


For now, all ticket holders should keep their tickets and wait for new announcements coming soon.


The most recent, up-to-the-minute information will be made available on the South Dakota State Fair social channels and website.


The 2022 South Dakota State Fair runs Thursday, September 1, through Monday, September 5. Channel Seeds preview night will be Wednesday, August 31.
