(Neb.)-State Fair Signs “Chicago” To This Year's Concert Series
(GRAND ISLAND)-The Nebraska State Fair has signed one of the country’s most prolific groups to its line-up. Chicago will perform on Saturday, August 31st. Tickets will cost $30 dollars plus fees and will go on sale Tuesday, June 18th, starting at 8:00 a.m.
According to State Fair Events and Entertainment Director Chelsey Jungck, “There’s no question that Chicago is one of the most successful bands in the history of music. With record sales over 100-million, 21 Top 10 singles, five consecutive number one albums, and 11 number one singles, Chicago is the first American band to chart Top 40 albums in five decades, which is a landmark accomplishment.”
Formed in 1967, Chicago weaved an entirely new sound—rock and roll with horns. The groups’ string of hits includes, “25 or 6 to 4,” “Just You and Me,” “Saturday in the Park,” ”Old Days,” “Wishing You Were Here,” “You’re The Inspiration,” and the list goes on and on.
Jungck said, “The Nebraska State Fair prides itself in presenting the very best in Classic Rock and Roll. Chicago is the epitome of artists who have helped shape a generation. As one of the few bands that have continually toured since their inception, fairgoers will be amazed at their recollection of where they were when a Chicago hit was on the radio.”
“When one thinks of what group is and always has been at the forefront of the music industry, there’s no question that Chicago ranks at the top,” Jungck said.
