I always look forward to The Great New York State Fair in Syracuse every summer. And this year, Journey and Cheap Trick will be onstage as a double bill. Check out the details.

According to nysfair.org:

"Journey will take people on an exciting trip through four decades of its well-loved songs at the New York State Fairgrounds Grandstand at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 28.

Journey has sold 80 million albums worldwide and has earned 19 Top 40 singles and 25 gold, platinum and multi-platinum albums since its formation in 1973 in San Francisco.

Cheap Trick will open for Journey. With more than 5,000 performances, 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks and 40 gold and platinum recording awards, the band was honored in October 2007 by the Chicago Chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences for their contributions to the music industry.

Tickets prices at $65, $55, and $45 go on sale at 9:00 a.m. Saturday, April 26 at the State Fair Box Office and at the Fair's only and official online ticket agent, etix.com. Tickets can also be purchased by phone, at 1 (800) 514-3849, option 1."
