Fulton County Fair entertainment 2013.04.10

Written by David Green.

This year’s Fulton County Fair entertainment will feature the 1980s rock band Foreigner, and Justin Moore and Randy Houser will take to the stage for the Labor Day country concert.

Foreigner will perform Sept. 1 in the Grandstand. With 10 multi-platinum albums and 16 Top 30 hits, Foreigner is hailed as one of the most popular rock acts of the 80s. Responsible for some of rock and roll’s most enduring anthems including I Want To Know What Love Is, Juke Box Hero, Feels Like The First Time, Head Games, Cold as Ice and Hot Blooded, Foreigner continues to rock the charts  and play to sold-out crowds.

Headlining this year's Labor Day concert Sept. 2, is country music's Justin Moore, with Randy Houser as his opening act.

Voted Billboard Magazine’s Best Male Country Artist in 2009, Moore’s first two albums, “Justin Moore” and “Outlaws Like Me” reached gold status. Much of Moore’s claim to fame is the lyrics of his hit, “Small Town USA.”

Randy Houser‘s first radio hit “How Country Feels” was released earlier this year, along with other tracks including “We’re Just Growing Younger” and “Along for the Ride.

All Grandstand seats are reserved.  Festival seating, an industry term for standing room only, will be available on the track. Festival seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis and tickets cost $28. Grandstand seats cost $26 and $20.  Prices do not include regular adult gate admission of $5. Parking is free.

Tickets go on sale July 8 by mail, online at www.fultonocountyfair.com or by calling 419-335-SHOW (7469). The Fair Ticket Office will open July 15. Check the Fair’s website for Ticket Office hours.

    FAYETTE resident Patricia Stambaugh, 64, was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle accident Friday morning south of Morenci. Rescue units were called around 9 a.m., but as of Tuesday, law enforcement officers had not yet determined the time of the accident.

  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
