LIMA — Dustin Lynch will be the headline music act Aug. 19 at the Allen County Fair.
Lynch has had three consecutive No. 1 hits, two top five albums, platinum-level sales, and back-to back summers on one of the biggest tours in country music.
The concert will open with country music legend Neal McCoy.
“The board of directors have again stepped up to present the best country music has to offer. This megashow will be a night to remember. We’re ecstatic to have these groups performing at the 2017 Allen County Fair,” said Bob Fricke, general manager of the Allen County Fair.
McCoy has sold more than 6 million records during his career in country music. No. 1 singles include “Wink” and “You Gotta Love That,” as well as “The Shake” and “Billy’s Got His Beer Goggles On.”
Tickets for the Dustin Lynch with Neal McCoy concert go on sale at 9 a.m. Feb. 24 at http://allencofair.com. Box office sales at the fairgrounds and by telephone begin at 9 a.m. March 7.
Ticket prices are $40 for grandstand and bleachers, $50 for the party pit, and $100 for the VIP party pit directly in front of the stage. Prices include service charges but do not include a gate admission ticket to the fair, which is required. VISA, Discover and MasterCard are accepted.
Fricke reminds buyers when purchasing on the internet to only use the fair’s website http://allencofair.com. Other sites are mainly made up of ticket brokers and resellers that often charge customers two to three times face value of the ticket, he said.
The first single from Lynch’s current album is “Seein’ Red.” He’s been to the top of the charts with “Cowboys and Angels,” “Where It’s At (Yep, Yep),” “Hell of a Night,” and “Mind Reader.”
McCoy has released 15 studio albums on various labels and has released 34 singles to country radio. He has been on 15 USO Tours around the world and continues to say it’s one of the achievements of which he’s most proud.
