CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – A new opening act has been named for the Canfield Fair concert.
Starset will now open for Shinedown on Sept. 6 at the Canfield Fair grandstand.
Starset replaces Theory, which canceled all their concert events because of COVID-19. Theory said it is canceling tour dates, including the Monday night performance at the Canfield Fair, because of the current surge in COVID-19 cases, “made worse by the Delta variant,” the band announced.
The cancellation last week left the fair board scrambling to find another act.
Starset is a cinematic rock band fronted by Dustin Bates and was formed in 2013 in Columbus. Bates is a Salem native.
