Legendary country band Alabama returns to the Wisconsin State Fair on August 10.

State Fair announces Alabama, Summerland Tour


This afternoon, the Wisconsin State Fair announced two more shows for the Main Stage: legendary country band Alabama and the Summerland Tour 2014, featuring Everclear, Eve 6, Soul Asylum and Spacehog. The two concerts join Lady Antebellum as the fair's headliners so far.

After performing at every State Fair from 1982 to 1995, Alabama is ending their 13-year hiatus from the Wisconsin summer tradition with a concert on Aug. 10, the final night of the fair. The country band hit it big in the '80s, winning two Grammys and multiple Academy of Country Music awards, including Artist of the Decade.

The show will begin at 6 p.m. Tickets for upper grandstand reserved seats are $29, while track general admission and lower grandstand reserved tickets are $39.

Meanwhile, the '90s-palooza that is the Summerland Tour will hit the Main Stage on Thursday, Aug. 7. Everclear is the biggest name of the bunch with the radio hits "Wonderful" and "Father of Mine," though Eve 6 ("Inside Out," "Here's to the Night"), Soul Asylum ("Runaway Train") and Spacehog ("In the Meantime") all had their moments in the sun two decades ago as well.

The concert will begin at 7:00 p.m. with all tickets costing $25.

Tickets for the two shows go on sale Friday, Feb. 28 at 10 a.m. on the Wisconsin State Fair's website, as well as at the fair ticket office. All Main Stage tickets include fair admission.

The 2014 Wisconsin State Fair runs July 31 through Aug. 10.
