Bebe Rexha fans were left disappointed with her no-show at the Summertime 2018 line-up. The 'Meant To Be' singer, who had signed up for the opening gig for Florida Georgia Line had to cancel her performance due to health reasons. She was scheduled to perform at 7.30 pm at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater on Saturday, June 30. Just hours before her act, Summerfest's official Twitter handle made the announcement that Rexha will not be able to make the performance. 

Fans had been quite excited to see the act, considering the pop singer successfully collaborated with the Country band for 'Meant to Be,' which went on to become one of the most popular songs of last year.  

The powerhouse performer, however, found a replacement in another brilliant singer – Rachel Platton. The 'Fight Song' singer also headlined at the BMO Harris Pavilion at 9.45 pm on the same night. Rexha's last-minute cancellation worked in the favor of Country singer Canaan Smith, a newcomer who is best known for his hit single 'Love You Like That.'

The Summerfest, which will last till Sunday, July 8 in Milwaukee will see performances from the likes of Mojo Perry Band, Pink Houses, Accompany of Kids, School of Rock and Cheap Trick. 

Rexha is yet to make any public statements after backing out of Summerfest, with her last tweet having been shared on June 29, Thursday, where revealed her current mood. She tweeted, "Current mood: happy, over f**k boys, damn this iced coffee is good, my butt looks good in these jeans, this drake album is so good." 

Platten, meanwhile, posted about her double duty in Milwaukee with the tweet, "Two sets at #summerfest. Let’s do dis." 

Smith tweeted a photo of himself with the words "Last minute rollin' to the airport to fly to Milwaukee and open the show for Florida Georgia Line tonight at Summerfest," along with the caption: "See you TONIGHT, MILWAUKEE!!! @Summerfest @FLAGALine #letsgo"
