Luke Bryan took to social media to share some upsetting news with fans, stating on Saturday that a concert that was slated to take place that night was going to be canceled.

The country star, 47, was scheduled to perform in Eyota, Minnesota as part of his ongoing Farm Tour. However, due to difficult weather conditions, they were forced to cancel the show hours before the actual concert.

"Eyota, MN Farm Tour, we are onsite and have been working to make this show happen for tonight. Unfortunately with impending weather we are having to make the tough decision to cancel the show," his statement read.

"The safety of each of you is our first concern and we do not want to jeopardize that in any way. We love Farm Tour and all of you who support these shows and the American Farmer."

The show was scheduled to be the last for the six-date tour, which first began on September 14 in Kentucky and played through Ohio, Michigan, Iowa, and Wisconsin.

The tour was first created in 2010 as a means to honor the American farmer and this year, the singer embarked on his fourteenth rendition of the tour.

Proceeds from the shows and the variety of sponsors would go to farming communities that lack access to necessary land resources and healthcare, as well as college scholarships to those from farming families.

When the 2023 tour was announced, Luke said in a press release: "One of the reasons we created these Farm Tour shows – to bring the big-city tour to the people.
