Classic rock… with an Illinois flavor… will be featured during one of the Grandstand shows at this year’s Illinois State Fair.
Fair officials announced some additional acts signed to perform at this year’s fair, which opens August 8th. Three bands that got their start in Illinois… Styx, REO Speedwagon, and Head East… are all part of the same bill on Saturday, August 10th. The fair has also signed several more country acts to go along with Toby Keith, which was previously announced. The updated lineup also includes The Band Perry, Billy Currington, and a multi-act country show that will feature Gary Allan and Thompson Square.
Tickets for Toby Keith go on sale tomorrow. Sale dates for the other shows have not been set yet.
