Tickets are now on sale for the headlining music acts at this year’s Fulton County Fair.

The Sunday, Sept. 4 classic rock concert will feature 38 Special and Night Ranger. After more than four decades together, 38 Special continues to bring a signature blast of Southern Rock to over 100 cities a year.

The band is probably best known for its 80s hits “Hold on Loosley” and “Caught Up in You.” Other top 40 hits include “Back Where You Belong,” “Second Chance,” and “If I’d Been the One.”

Guitarist and vocalist Don Barnes, an original member, still performs, along with Bobby Capps, Gary Moffatt, Barry Dunaway, and Jerry Riggs.

Hard rockers, Night Ranger, recently released their 12th studio album and are touring this summer.

Their popularity is fueled by a number of recognizable hit singles and signature album tracks, including titles such as “Sister Christian”, “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me”, “When You Close Your Eyes”, the anthemic “(You Can Still) Rock In America”, along with “Sentimental Street”, “Goodbye”, “Sing Me Away”, and “Four in the Morning”.

Original members Kelly Keagy, Jack Blades, and Brad Gillis continue to rock for audiences, along with Eric Levy and Keri Kelli.

Tickets range in price from $36 to $65. The $65 tickets are for VIP track spots, which are standing room only in the area directly in front of the stage.

The country concert on Labor Day will feature country star Jimmie Allen. Allen won the Country Music Association Award for New Artist of the Year in 2021 and his third album is set to be released this June.

His singles “Best Shot”, “Make Me Want To”, and “Freedom was a Highway” all hit number one on the Country Airplay chart.

American Idol winner Chayce Beckham will open for Allen.

Ticket prices range from $28 to $60.

Tickets can be purchased online at fultoncountyfair.com or at the fair ticket office. There is a $1.30 processing fee for all online purchases.

The ticket office is in the Administrative Building just north of the Grandstand. It will be open on Tuesdays from 1-7 p.m. through Aug. 9. After that it will be open more often.

Tickets can now also be purchased for tractor pulls, KOI drag racing and the demolition derby.

And there is a new option to purchase admission passes. Daily and weekly passes can be purchased through the fair website.

The 2022 Fulton County Fair runs from Sept. 2-8.
