Mississippi Valley Fair Makes Major Change To Grandstand Lineup
There's a little bit of a change for the 2023 Mississippi Valley Fair. That change is specifically regarding the bonus concert on Monday, July 31st that is supposed to feature Jimmie Allen. If you've been following the news surrounding Jimmie Allen, this announcement may come as no surprise to you.
This morning, fair officials announced two new acts will be taking the stage Monday night instead of Allen. This is still a bonus concert and as long as you have a Fun Card, you'll be able to see two awesome acts for free.
The 2023 Mississippi Valley Fair is shaping up to be even better than we thought because there are now 9 grandstand acts in just 7 days at the great one.
Jimmie Allen Out As MVF Grandstand Act... Again
On Thursday, Shawn Loter and the crew at the Mississippi Valley Fair announced that Jimmie Allen will no longer be playing at MVF 2023. This is the second year in a row Allen was scheduled to perform at the fair.
Jimmie was scheduled to perform at MVF 2022 on Thursday, August 4th but the show was canceled and Allen blamed it on American Airlines and delays which didn't allow him to get to Davenport.
A lot of people were excited he was returning for a bonus concert at MVF 2023, but now we know he isn't coming once again to the Mississippi Valley Fair and we have a solid idea why.
Jimmie Allen Accused Of Sexually Assaulting Two Women
Two women are accusing Allen of sexually assaulting them. Back in May, a member of Jimmie Allen's former day-to-day team says the singer raped her, and repeatedly sexually abused and harassed her over an 18-month period from 2020 to 2022, according to Taste of Country.
Variety details in depth the unnamed woman's story, citing interviews with "Jane Doe" and her friends and family, as well as dozens of text messages in that time period, exchanged between various parties including Allen and Doe.
In June, a second woman is accusing Jimmie Allen of sexual assault. Jane Doe 2 also alleges he filmed the encounter.
A lawsuit filed Friday (June 9) in Tennessee federal court describes a chance meeting on an airplane that led to two months of regular, long-distance communicating and finally a meetup in Las Vegas. There, Variety reports, she says Allen sexually assaulted her.
This makes sense as to why the 'Best Shot' singer won't be making it to Davenport this year.
Bonus Concert Gets Two New Acts
As they say in show business, "The show must go on," and that includes the bonus concert. During the same announcement Thursday morning about Jimmie Allen being out as the bonus concert, Shawn Loter announced the two new acts replacing him.
You read that right, two new acts!
