Two up-and-coming headliners and two comedy vets are the latest additions to The Big Fresno Fair’s concert lineup. And there are two ticket price changes you should know about too.
The fair added teen pop singer Ariana Grande (from the Nickelodeon’s “Victorious”) as the afternoon act on Oct. 13. She’ll play at 1 p.m. and be joined by local pop singer Ryan Beatty, a rising star in his own right. Tickets cost $12.
Comics Cheech & Chong will now join funk band War on Oct. 3, the fair’s opening night. Tickets have been bumped up to $20-$25. In another ticket price change: the Lynyrd Skynyrd concert on Oct. 4 has dropped to $40-$45 from $42-$49.
POSTED MAY 14: For those of you bemoaning the lack of more modern acts on this year’s Big Fresno Fair concert schedule, two more acts have been added. And they’re both pretty current.
Scroll down for more fair concerts, ticket prices and how you can buy tickets before they go on sale the public.
The classic rock band will play Thursday, Oct. 11 (which, btw, is the fair’s food drive day — fair admission is free with four cans of food). Tickets for the concert will cost $23 and $28.
Foreigner, you may recall, opened for Journey at Save Mart Center recently, and had the place rockin’. Scroll down for the initial batch of concerts announced for this year’s fair, which now have ticket prices too. Tickets are still scheduled to on sale in August.
POSTED 3/23: It’s not too early to start thinking about the 2012 Big Fresno Fair, is it? Hope not, because we just got the first batch of concerts that the fair has booked for this year:
Tickets go on sale to the public Aug. 6, so we’ll get them before that, obviously. There’s also going to be a pre-sale starting July 30 for members of the Big Fair Fan Club, an e-mail list you can join for free.
Expect more concert announcements soon. And expect to find them here on The Beehive.
