THE BAND PERRY AND LYNYRD SKYNYRD HEADLINE Georgia National Fair Concert Series
The Fair kicks off on October 6 and runs thru Oct. 16.
The Band Perry will take the stage Saturday, Oct. 8 and southern rock royalty Lynyrd Skynyrd will headline the following week on Oct. 15. Tickets to these shows are $40 and available via the fair website georgianationalfair.com.
Merging country, pop, and rock elements into a sharp contemporary sound, the Band Perry is comprised of siblings Kimberly Perry, Reid Perry, and Neil Perry. The band won a Grammy in 2015.
The quintessential Southern rock band, Lynyrd Skynyrd rose to prominence in 1973, full of regional pride and stressing cocky, boisterous hard rock as opposed to the Allman Brothers’ more open-ended blues. Their signature song, “Freebird,” complete with it’s fiery five-minute, three-guitar solo, is easily the most requested live song in existence.
The Fair kicks off on October 6 and runs thru Oct. 16. From midway rides and petting zoos to nightly free enterainment, the Perry attraction has something for the entire family. Gates are open 8 a.m. – 10 p.m. and adult admission is $10 per person. Children 10 and under are free.
Free, nightly concerts include Nitty Gritty Dirt Band Oct. 10; Blues Traveler Oct. 11; Boyz II Men Oct. 12; and Old Dominion Oct. 13. Concerts begin at 7 p.m. Stay for the nightly fireworks show!
