Mount Isa City Council have confirmed Daryl Braithwaite will play a free concert in the city in Rodeo Week.
Braithwaite was due to appear last year only for the pandemic to cause the event to be cancelled but he will now show up a year later than planned.
However due to complications with Covid rules, Braithwaite will now play on Tuesday August 10 not a day later at the street festival which was the original plan for the 2020 rodeo.
A report to Council's monthly meeting on Wednesday said the move would lower numbers in the CBD which Queensland Health said would make it possible for people to social distance.
Council also said securing a venue for the Braithwaite concert has been "challenging" and it is still working through options on where it will take place.
Mayor Danielle Slade said she was excited the concert was going ahead and it was a "win-win" for Mount Isa.
"I'm looking forward to the Rodeo and all the features that come with it," Cr Slade said.
The street festival will take place a day after the free concert on Wednesday August 11 with a parade theme of "country roads and city lights".
Queensland Health have advised Council that tables and chairs should be set up around performance and busking areas "to minimise the risk of dancing".
Thursday August 12 sees the Mailman Express races and the rodeo is on from August 12-15 at Buchanan Park.
