Charlie Puth with Special Guest Life of Dillon August 22nd in Iowa State Fair Grandstand
Wednesday, August 12, 2015 Des Moines, IA
Unfortunately, on Thursday, August 11th, Meghan Trainor announced that she was cancelling her tour, including an August 22nd performance at the Iowa State Fair Grandstand, due to vocal cord issues. In her statement, Trainor said, "I was being careful and taking precautions, but I have hemorrhaged my vocal cord again. I got bronchitis and have been coughing a lot and that pushed it over the edge. Sadly, I will need to cancel the remainder of my tour and get surgery to finally fix this once and for all. I am devastated and so sorry. I LOVE touring and seeing your beautiful faces every night. I am determined to do what it takes to get better and come back stronger than ever. I love you, and thank you for all of your understanding, love and support." The Iowa State Fair wishes Meghan Trainor a speedy recovery.
Charlie Puth with special guest Life of Dillon, formerly Trainor's special guests in the original Grandstand line-up, will perform a free show in the Iowa State Fair Grandstand on Saturday, August 22nd.
The concert will begin at 8 p.m. Gates will open at 7 p.m. for the free show and it is general seating.
