The 'Bawitdaba' singer was scheduled to take the stage at The North Dakota State Fair over the weekend, but his show was canceled as a storm brewed on the outskirts of town.

AceShowbiz - Kid Rock left fans disappointed when he was forced to cancel his show at The North Dakota State Fair. In response to the cancellation, some of his fans who had been waiting at the venue caused a scene.

According to TMZ, the "Bawitdaba" warbler was scheduled to perform at the fair on Friday night, July 22. However, a storm brewing on the outskirts of town kept it delayed.

The musician was supposed to hit the stage at 9.30 P.M. following a performance by his opening act, Night Ranger. However, an officer from the Ward County Sheriff's Department announced by 11 o'clock that the concert was canceled.

Angered, the 18,000 audience began to trash the venue. They tossed beer cans. One man even climbed on the stage before security tackled him. Not stopping there, someone was handcuffed and led away by police.

In its official Facebook page, the North Dakota State Fair explained that the show was canceled due to "safety concerns of the high winds, lightning, and severe weather in the area." It also offered concertgoers refunds.

As for Kid Rock, he took to his Twitter account to express his disappointment over the cancellation. "SO PISSED OFF we could not play for a sold out crowd tonight in Minot, ND (because of high winds)," the Michigan-born rocker later tweeted. "I know it sucks but none of us can control mother nature. Please be safe leaving and take care of each other."

Kid Rock's tweet

Kid Rock addressed his canceled show at The North Dakota State Fair.

Replying to his tweet, a fan wrote, "265 for tickets, $120 round trip for gas, $36 fair admission, $100 merchandise purchase, $200 food and beverages, 2 hours in line to get through security, 3 and a half hours waiting to hear show is canceled. This is why people are pissed off. Easy to say chill when not there."

"Really?? What winds ? There were no winds. And the officer making the announcement, because u didn't even do that..said it was due to lightening! And I say again...what lightening?? The fair rides didn't even stop. You lost a very huge fan, in me tonight. Make that 18k fans," someone said. Echoing the sentiment, someone else added, "Kid Rock, there was no wind or rain when the show was cancelled (without a refund, explanation or rain date). I just got home from a 2 1/2 hour drive home from Minot."
