Band Perry One for Two on Labor Day Weekend State Fairs

Kimberly, Neil and Reid rock New York the day after storms chase them from the stage in Maryland.

Gotta feel bad for the thousands who turned out to see The Band Perry Saturday (Sept. 1) at the Maryland State Fair.

Before the show started, fans took cover in the grandstands of the racetrack while it rained on their country music parade, delaying the show for more than an hour.

Then, Kimberly, Neil and Reid Perry got about seven songs in when lightning had them—and fans —scurrying for cover, the Baltimore Sun reported.

After 20 minutes, officials announced the show was canceled, and that led to "a smattering of boos," the newspaper reported.

The band's booking agent said via Twitter that the show would be rescheduled for next summer.

The sibling trio had much better luck the next night (Sept. 2) in Syracuse at New York's state fair.

More than 25,000 crammed all around the stage, and the performance drew a sparkling review from syracuse.com, which said Kimberly "shined like a bright star."
