Tickets to go on sale this month

DuQuoin, IL – State Fair Manager Patrick Buchen announced today three more acts are slated to perform at the DuQuoin State Fair Grandstand stage.

On Friday, September 4, classic rock returns to the Grandstand as Night Ranger takes the stage.  Selling more than 17 million albums worldwide, Night Ranger transcended the sounds and styles of the 1980’s.  Best known for hits such as, “Sister Christian,” “When You Close Your Eyes,” and “(You Can Still) Rock in America,” Night Ranger continues to perform for sold-out crowds around the world.   Illinois’ very own Head East will return home to southern Illinois to kick off this night of rock.

Also slated to perform at the DuQuoin State Fair is country music superstar, Randy Houser. Houser’s concert will round out the 2015 fair, on Labor Day, Monday, September 7.

Houser is taking the billboard charts by storm with three consecutive number one hits, “How Country Feels,” “Runnin’Outta Moonlight” and “Goodnight Kiss.”
“Goodnight Kiss” recently became Houser’s first number one hit as a songwriter, though he has written numerous hits for artists over the years, including songs for Trace Adkins, Justin Moore and Chris Young.

To make this the ultimate concert experience, this year the DuQuoin State Fair will offer a limited number of Box Seats.  When you purchase Box Seats you will get six seats for you and your friends to soak in all the great summer Grandstand action, for all ten days of the fair.  Fair-goers must act fast to reserve this special offer, as box seats will be sold on a first come first serve basis.  You’re urged to call the DuQuoin State Fair Grandstand office for more information on availability and pricing.
