Three More Acts Join 2018 Fair Concert Line-Up

We’re excited to announce three more acts in the Alaska State Fair 2018 AT&T Concert Series line-up at the ConocoPhillips Borealis Theatre: Stone Sour on August 23, Three Dog Night on August 26, and Bishop Briggs with lovelytheband on August 31. Tickets for the three newly announced concerts go on sale to the general public Friday, May 18 at 10 a.m.

Thursday, August 23: Stone Sour. Described as a cross between Metallica and Alice in Chains, these Iowa-based rockers have made a name for themselves over their nearly 30-year career with a pair of Gold-selling albums, three Grammy nominations, and songs including the hit single “Through Glass” and “Bother,” which was featured on the Spider-Man soundtrack. Hydrograd, their most recent release – and sixth full-length album – came out last year.

Sunday, August 26: Three Dog Night. These legendary music icons are celebrating nearly five decades of making hit music like “Mama Told Me (Not To Come),” “Joy to the World,” “Black and White,” “Shambala” and “One.” With 21 consecutive Top 40 hits, 7 million-selling singles and 12 straight RIAA-certified Gold LPs, this Grammy-nominated group boasts chart and sales records virtually unmatched in popular music.

Friday, August 31: Bishop Briggs with lovelytheband. With a voice full of grit and heft, Bishop Briggs has been compared to strong female vocalists like Janis Joplin, Florence Welch and Aretha Franklin. Her songs include the heartfelt singles, “River” and “Wild Horses,” as heard on her 2017 self-titled debut EP. Church of Scars, featuring Bishop’s latest single, “White Flag,” was released this spring. Opening for Bishop is the sleek-toned indie pop group, lovelytheband, which debuted in July 2017 with the hot single “Broken,” currently #1 on the Billboard alternative chart.
