An unfortunate accident has caused 80's rock band Survivor to cancel next week's concert at the Central Washington State Fair.

A press release described the cancellation of the show that was scheduled for September 27th.

Legendary rock band Blood, Sweat & Tears will be appearing at the Central Washington State Fair on Thursday, September 27.  Originally the band Survivor had been signed to appear that day but the group just cancelled their appearance because of an injury sustained by one of the band members.

Blood, Sweat & Tears has a long list of hits including “You Made Me So Very Happy,”  “And When I Die,” and “Spinning Wheel” among others.  The Grammy award winning group will be performing at 7 p.m. at the Corona Stage on Thursday at the Fair.

“We’re sorry to lose Survivor as we know there were plenty of their fans planning to come to the show,” said Fair general manager and president, Greg Stewart.  “Unfortunately these things sometimes happen and we’re very happy that Blood, Sweat & Tears could fill in at the last minute.”

Stewart said the Fair will honor all Survivor tickets for the Blood, Sweat & Tears concert.  Or, if Survivor fans want a refund they can get that through the State Fair Park Box Office.  Refunds must be done before 5PM day of show.  Contact Misty Craft, Box Office Manager. Email: or by phone at (515) 393-0042.

General admission bleacher seats for the Blood, Sweat & Tears are free with admission to the fair, however a limited amount of reserved seating is available for purchase for the concert.   Reserve tickets are $14 & $9.  Tickets can be purchased through the State Fair Park Box Office, all TicketsWest outlets, and charge-by-phone at 800.325.7328 (SEAT).  Reserved seat tickets do not include Fair admission.

I am so bummed that Survivor cancelled but these things can't be avoided sometimes. Blood Sweat and Tears is a great replacement but hopefully Survivor will reschedule for next year so we finally get some "Eye Of The Tiger".
