In an interesting twist, you'll get to pick the set list.  The audience will choose every song the band performs from a list of 200 songs.

"This is big for the Fair's music fans: You get to see one of the greatest rock drummers of all time and you tell him what to play. When has that ever happened before?  This is a unique night and one for the memory books," said interim Fair Director Sean Hennessey.
