Country Comes to the Fair

Jason Aldean is booked for the grandstand.

Though Central New Yorkers still have plenty of winter ahead, it doesn’t mean they can’t dream of summer and pleasant-weather concerts, like those at the New York State Fair. Announcements of fair acts are starting to roll in, with Jason Aldean’s “Burn It Down Tour” topping the list.

Aldean last played a sold-out grandstand in 2012, and this year he’ll return to play Saturday, Aug. 30, the closing concert of the grandstand series. He’ll be joined by Florida George Line and Tyler Farr. Tickets to the 7:30 p.m. show cost $57, $67 or $77 and will go on sale at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 8,  at the State Fair Box Office and via the Fair’s online ticket seller, There will also be two standing-only areas between the stage and the T-shaped thrust for this concert only. Tickets will be $99 and available to members of the Jason Aldean fan club.

With more than 8.5 million albums sold and 12 No. 1 hits, this reigning ACM “Male Vocalist of the Year” and Grammy nominee is one of the hottest country artists on the market. He’s played venues spanning Madison Square Garden, the University of Georgia’s Sanford Stadium, Wrigley Field, Fenway Park and more.

“This is an amazing lineup,” says Richard A. Ball, acting state commissioner of agriculture. “It’s no wonder experts call this one of the top tours of 2014.”
