The Missouri State Fair concert tickets are now on sale through Ticketmaster.
One of Missouri’s favorite native daughters, Sheryl Crow, is slated to perform along with seven other concerts.
Crow’s soon-to-be-released album, titled “100 Miles From Memphis,” makes reference to her hometown of Kennett, Missouri. The album will feature music reminiscent of the soul sounds Crow used to listen to on the radio while growing up. She’s on the road this summer to promote the new album along with the debut of a new touring band stopping at the Missouri State Fair for her Aug. 21 performance.
“Sheryl Crow performing on the final Saturday in front of fans from her home state will surely be a memorable experience,” Missouri State Fair Director Mark Wolfe says.
Opening for Crow will be Colbie Caillat. Tickets for the concert start at $25.
Three concerts start at $10 including Eli Young Band with Candy Coburn, who will perform Opening Day, Thursday, Aug. 12.
Other concerts offering a $10 ticket are Katharine McPhee with Bomshel on Sunday, Aug. 15, and the Country Gold Tour on Wednesday, Aug. 18. Legends performing in the Country Gold show are Leroy Van Dyke, Moe Bandy, Helen Cornelius, The Gatlin Brothers (Steve and Rudy), Jimmy Fortune, Gene Watson, David Frizzell and Narvel Felts.
Returning to the Fair from last year is rock band Shinedown on Friday, Aug. 13. The opening act is rock trio Chevelle with hits from their latest album, “Sci Fi Crimes.” Tickets for Shinedown and Chevelle start at $17.
Classic rock icons Three Dog Night will take the stage Thursday, Aug. 19, bringing crowd favorites like “Mama Told Me (Not To Come)” and “Joy to the World.” Opening for Three Dog Night is rock and roll band The Grass Roots. Tickets start at $15.
Montgomery Gentry with The Lost Trailers on Saturday, Aug. 14 and Darius Rucker with The Band Perry on Friday, Aug. 20, complete the concert series with prices to both starting at $17.
