GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KLKN)– The Nebraska State Fair is moving two concerts indoors to the Heartland Event Center due to heavy rain in the weekend forecast, Bill Ogg, Nebraska State Fair Executive Director said.

Kevin Costner & Modern West, originally scheduled on the Bristol Stage at the Anderson Auto Sports Field, will be moved to the Bristol Stage in the Heartland Event Center.

Given the HEC seating configuration, $31 pit tickets will now include the option of 1000 seats in addition to standing on the arena floor. General Admission tickets for seating in the arena bowl seats are available for $21. The concert will start at its originally scheduled time of 7:30 P.M. on Thursday, September 2, 2021.

The Christian band concert We Are Messenger, scheduled for 7:00 P.M. September 1, 2021 will now be held in the Heartland Event Center.

It was originally scheduled for the Pump & Pantry Pepsi Party Deck. Free general admission to We Are Messenger is included with Fair gate ticket purchase.

We want to provide the safest most enjoyable environment possible for everyone attending the State Fair, according to Ogg. Many logistics necessary to make these adjustments are in process for a successful transition.
