KONGOS, July Talk and Cheech & Chong Join Fair Concert Series!

If good rock music gets your heart pumping, or if you’re in the mood for some irreverent and hilarious comedy, then you’re going to be excited about the final acts announced for the 2016 AT&T Concert Series at the Alaska State Fair!

On Sunday, August 28, KONGOS with special guest July Talk performs at the Fair, while the iconic comedy duo Cheech & Chong featuring special guest Shelby Chong take the stage Monday, August 29.

Kicking off the August 28 show at 6 p.m. is July Talk, the Canadian rockers known for their electrifying concerts and dynamic new single, “Push + Pull.” KONGOS, the four-brother rock band behind “Come With Me Now” and “I’m Only Joking,” starts their set at 7 p.m.

On August 29, the Fair welcomes Grammy Award-winning comedians Cheech & Chong on their first tour in more than 25 years! Performing with them is special guest, Shelby Chong, a talented, up-and-coming female comedian making a name for herself with her raunchy, outrageous, yet innocent, feminine-centric stand-up show.
