If rain wasn’t a good thing the first time around — snow is even worse.

Country star Luke Bryan’s Farm Tour concert, originally scheduled for Oct. 3 and moved to Wednesday, will not be held at MC Farms in Louisburg, according to manager Raelynn Rockwell.

The concert will instead be held at the Sprint Center in downtown Kansas City, Missouri.

According to the Sprint Center’s website, all tickets for the Oct. 3 and Oct. 30 shows will be honored. On Facebook, some ticket holders were upset, saying the show was not meant to be and that they were out hundreds of dollars because of the change.

Still, some fans were happy with the new venue location.

“I was really excited. I liked the concept of doing a farm tour,” said Natalie Hill, who bought tickets at the Sprint Center on Tuesday. “I liked it was outside Kansas City, but then not being able to go.”

She said she had hoped to go to the first scheduled concert but was out of town serving in the military. Once she heard about the change, however, she raced downtown to get her tickets.

“I was so excited because I wanted to take my mom and we are both really big fans,” Hill said. “I texted her saying, ‘I’m getting the tickets and just know you are going.'”

Kevin Kale, who lives downtown with his wife, is a country music fan — but not enough to drive to Louisburg.

“We wanted to go and we were looking at the weather the past two weeks and it’s just so far south for us,” Kale said. Now, he said he’s going to the concert and is thrilled about the change.

The Sprint Center said all tickets, for both the floor and the seating bowl, will be general admission.

Concertgoers can line up for general admission wristbands starting at 2 p.m. Wednesday, the Sprint Center said. Doors will open at 5 p.m.

Farm Tour parking purchased online will not be honored. Refunds are available to the original card holder through Big Tickets. Customers should allow seven to 10 business days for the refunds to post to their account.

Big Tickets can be reached at farmtour@bigtickets.com for previous ticketing inquires.

Tickets for the concert are on sale at SprintCenter.com, the box office or by phone at 888-929-7849.

A storm system on Wednesday could transition to snow, especially along and north of Interstate 70, and up to 3 inches of snow are possible.

The concert was originally rescheduled because of heavy rain that made it difficult to load in equipment needed for the show.
