Pop superstar Jason Derulo will replace Pat Benetar & Neil Giraldo in a performance at this year’s Alaska State Fair.

Derulo — 2014’s most-played male artist on the radio — will perform Saturday, Sept. 6 at 6 p.m. Tickets are now on sale at alaskastatefair.org


Derulo, who is known for hits like “Ridin’ Solo” and “Talk Dirty,” is also a judge on this year’s season of “So You Think You Can Dance.”

According to Fair officials, people who purchased Pat Benetar tickets can do one of the following:

  1. Use their current ticket at the Jason Derulo replacement concert. (A Pat Benatar ticket guarantees a ticket to the Derulo concert.)

  2. Exchange their tickets for one of the other performances at the 2015 Fair (with refund of any cost difference in ticket price).

  3. Full refund, including fees, of their tickets.

If you have questions, you can contact the Alaska State Fair’s pass office at passoffice@alaskastatefair.org or 907-746-7178.

Benetar made the announcement of her cancellation on Facebook, saying Giraldo suffered an eye injury and needed emergency surgery.
