MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The final piece of the Minnesota State Fair’s series of Grandstand concerts is now in place. Sheryl Crow has just been announced as the latest booking for the Great Minnesota Get-Together.
Crow’s concert is scheduled for Aug. 25, with tickets ($39) to go on sale on Saturday through the State Fair box office or Etix.
The concert will mark the third appearance in the Twin Cities by Crow, who is set to release a new album of country music in September. She appeared at Mystic Lake Casino earlier this summer — and also played an exclusive set at WCCO Radio’s new Cambria Gallery on 7th — and she is also booked to perform at the Minneapolis State Theater on Aug. 2 during Glamorama.
Dwight Yoakam was announced as the opening act for Crow.
In addition to Crow’s show, State Fair organizers also announced a few other additional acts had been added to this year’s roster.
Brantley Gilbert will perform as the opening act for Tim McGraw on Monday, Sept. 2. There are still a limited number of tickets available for that show at $71 and $56 a pop.
Also, Rival Sons will be performing as special guests along with Buckcherry during Sammy Hagar’s Four Decades of Rock show on Saturday, Aug. 24. Tickets for that event are $35.
The State Fair Grandstand concert series kicks off on Aug. 22 with the comedic “SNL” trifecta of Dana Carvey, Dennis Miller and Kevin Nealon. Among this year’s other notable acts are synth-pop titans Depeche Mode (Aug. 27) and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (Aug. 31), whose hits “Thrift Shop” and “Can’t Hold Us” have been sitting atop the pop charts for most of 2013.
