|Lady Antebellum with special guest Joe Nichols - Thursday, August 28|
|Lady Antebellum, the country music trio with a long list of distinctions including seven Grammy awards, will perform at The Great Allentown Fair on Thursday, August 28.
Joe Nichols, an enduring earthy country music baritone, will join Lady Antebellum as special guest. The show starts at 7 p.m.
Tickets to the concert are $59 and $39 for seats both on the track (floor) and in the grandstand, and $75 for a small standing pit area surrounding a center stage extension out into the crowd. They go on sale to the public starting at 10 a.m. Friday, March 14.
Lady Antebellum exploded on the country music scene in the fall of 2009 with the release of its monster hit single, “Need You Now,” that came off of the group’s sophomore album of the same name. This lyrical rendition of a broken romance late night phone call, popularly referred to as a “drunk dial,” struck a chord with both country and pop music fans dominating Billboard charts throughout 2010, the year Lady Antebellum first performed at the Allentown Fair.
|Tim McGraw with special guest Jana Kramer - Friday, August 29|
|One of country music's most enduring and relevant artists, Tim McGraw, is returning to The Great Allentown Fair to perform on Friday, August 29.
His special guest will be country singer and former television series One Tree Hill star Jana Kramer.
Tickets to the concert are $78 and $58 for seating both on the track (floor) and in the grandstand, and $88 for a standing pit area in front of the stage. They go on sale to the public starting at 10 a.m. Friday, February 21.
After two decades as a country music powerhouse, McGraw continues to add to his more than 40 million albums sold, 35 No. 1 hit singles, major film roles and countless music industry awards and nominations.
The Academy of Country Music (ACM) just announced he is up for seven awards, tying Miranda Lambert for this year's most nominations. He's recognized as both artist and producer for "Two Lanes of Freedom" as Album of the Year and for "Highway Don't Care" as both Single of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year.
|Mötley Crüe with special guest Alice Cooper - Wednesday, August 27|
Mötley Crüe, one of the biggest names in heavy metal glam rock, is saying goodbye, "FOREVER." "The Final Tour" featuring "the world's most notorious rock band" will stop at The Great Allentown for a major concert event Wednesday, August 27. Joining the Crüe as its very special guest, shock rocker Alice Cooper will be part of what Crüe fans know will be a production of "epic" proportions.
"It's only fitting the Crüe take a last bow at the Allentown Fairgrounds," Bonnie Brosious, the fair's marketing director and talent buyer, commented. She pointed to the band's performance at the fairgrounds during a non fair summer concert in 1985 right after Mötley Crüe dropped its third album, "Theatre of Pain"—a recording that eventually went quadruple platinum selling copies years beyond its initial release. It contained hits "Smokin' in the Boys Room" and "Home Sweet Home." Both the album and ensuing tour established Mötley Crüe as a force in glam and heavy metal rock as well as in elaborate stage productions. Big hits like "Girls, Girls Girls," "Dr. Feelgood" and "Without You," followed.
Tickets for the show go on sale to the public this Friday at 10 a.m. at the Fair Box Office and Ticketmaster online, phone and outlets. The box office will be open from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Friday, January 31 and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. every Thursday thereafter.
Tickets are $90 for reserved seats on the track (floor) surrounding the stage extension; $75 for reserved seats in the covered grandstand and $45 for general admission grab seats on the track and in the grandstand.
