A day later (June 13), news broke that Toby has canceled all of his upcoming performances. Some of the affected shows include his June 17 concert at Naperville’s Ribfest and his July 28 performance at the Ohio State Fair.
Toby had some other shows on the books throughout the summer. But now, the “tour” page of his website is empty.
Our hearts go out to Toby Keith as he courageously battles cancer. Tickets purchased from Ticketmaster for his #ohiostatefair show on July 28, which has been cancelled, will be automatically refunded. Any information about an alternate concert on July 28 is forthcoming. https://t.co/Qi7rl0UagL— Ohio State Fair (@OhioStateFair) June 12, 2022
Toby and his family have received a wealth of support after he came forward with his diagnosis. His son, Stelen, took to social media to thank everyone for the kind messages they’ve sent to him and his dad.
Stelen is the youngest of Toby and his wife Tricia’s three children. Toby adopted Tricia’s daughter, Shelley, after they married in 1984. The couple welcomed another daughter, Krystal, in 1985. Stelen was born in 1997. He carries the last name “Covel,” which is Toby’s legal last name.
