Toby Keith Braves Minnesota Downpour To Headline Winstock Music Festival

toby keith

Saturday’s tour stop at the Winstock Music Festival in Winsted, Minnesota was anything but the usual for singer-songwriter, entertainer Toby Keith. A storm stretching from the Texas Panhandle to the Great Lakes with unrelenting rain, 20-30 mph winds, and lightning hit hard and made it nearly impossible for Keith to go on stage. Threatening as it was, Toby Keith delayed the start of his set and went on to perform in the rain with the fans that packed festival grounds, who all stayed until the last note.

“We found a window of time where lightning was at a safe distance and we went on,” tour manager David Milam noted.

The rain continued throughout the show, causing some equipment damage including the loss of video projectors and HD cameras. They were also unable to do some of the pyro/flames due to the winds. A few early acts were unable to perform because of lightning in the area.

Currently on his Shut Up And Hold On Tour Presented by Ford F-Series, Toby Keith will be performing next in Washington D.C. on June 28. The trek includes support from Colt Ford and Keith’s daughter Krystal Keith. The latter also performed at the Winstock Music Festival before the brunt of the storm began.
