LIMA, Ohio The rock band HOOBASTANK has canceled its appearance at the Allen County Fair this summer, prompting the fair board to try to schedule a different act for Aug. 21.
Jay Begg, fair manager, said yesterday the cancellation of the band resulted from a mistake by the group s management, which double-booked it for that day. The fair board hopes to line up a new band by June 1.
Anyone who already purchased a ticket for the show can return the tickets for a refund by Oct. 31 or get a same-seat exchange for the new concert by June 20.
Ticketholders can get a refund or exchange by stopping at the administration office at the fairgrounds or mailing the tickets with a self-addressed, stamped envelope to the Allen County Fair, 2750 Harding Hwy., Lima, Ohio 45804.
