Cosgrove was scheduled to perform at 1 p.m. Oct. 15, one of the highly anticipated concerts on this year’s fair lineup.
Cosgrove’s publicist released the following statement this morning:
“Due to the severe ankle injury she suffered in a bus accident last week, Miranda Cosgrove has to cancel the rest of her tour to take the time to properly recover, per doctor’s orders. Miranda is heartbroken and thanks all her fans for their continued support.”
Tickets — which were selling for $30 and $36, or $160 in a meet-and-greet package — will be refunded automatically if purchased via credit card. It should take 7-10 days. Cash purchases will need to be refunded at the fair’s box office starting Monday during normal business hours, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday. For more info: (559) 650-FAIR
The Fair says it is looking for another act to fill the gap left in the schedule. It hopes to make an announcement within the next week.
Oddly enough, Cosgrove is not the only rising music star to have to cancel a fair date in recent years because of injury. In 2009, rapper/singer Drake canceled a concert after he tore his ACL.
