Two More Acts Join 2018 Fair Concert Line-Up
Tickets go on sale Friday, June 29 at 10 a.m.
PALMER, AK—The Alaska State Fair announced two more acts will join its 2018 AT&T Concert Series line-up at the ConocoPhillips Borealis Theatre: Jonny Lang on August 29 and Lindsey Stirling on September 3. Tickets for the two newly announced concerts go on sale to the general public Friday, June 29 at 10 a.m.
Wednesday, August 29: Jonny Lang. Since the release of his platinum-selling debut album at the age of 15, Grammy Award-winning Jonny Lang has built a reputation as one of the best live performers and guitarists of his generation. An honest and passionate songwriter, Lang is known for his stunning guitar solos and voice like a weathered soul shouter, as heard on his six albums: Lie to Me (1997), Wander this World (1998), Long Time Coming (2003), Turn Around (2006), Fight for my Soul (2013), and Signs (2017). Lang is currently on his 2018 World Tour.
Monday, September 3: Lindsey Stirling. An acclaimed violinist from Gilbert, Arizona, Lindsey Stirling has created a new music world where modern classical meets the infectious energy of dance and electronica. With Billboard chart-topping hits like “Crystallize,” gold-selling albums, two Billboard Music Awards, and sold out tours worldwide, fans have clearly welcomed her fresh sound. Stirling’s most recent studio album, Brave Enough, scored the #1 spot on Billboard’s year-end Top Dance/Electronic Album list, and earned Stirling a 2017 Billboard Music Award for Top Dance/Electronic Album.
Starting at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 29, tickets will be available online at alaskastatefair.org and print at home, on the Fair’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/alaskastatefair, and on a mobile phone.
