“Ba de ya – say do you remember, ba de ya – dancing in September, ba de ya – never was a cloudy day!” Ah, “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire could almost be our theme song here at the LA County Fair. And both times the legendary R&B band rocked the Fair’s End of Summer Concert Series, the stands were bursting. The series is one of the most anticipated events of the Fair, where you can see some of the finest names in entertainment just for the price of a Fair ticket (reserved, box and stage-side seating are available, too, for an additional cost). The lineup for 2008 will be announced soon, but fans of the End of Summer Concert Series can join the EOSCS Club now. For $15, you’ll get a T-shirt, updates on who is playing and a pre-sale ticket code, allowing you to purchase tickets before the general public.
If you’ve been to one of the concerts, you know they’re fantastic. If you haven’t, go! Our lineup always has something for every musical taste and even some exciting non-musical options like monster trucks and motocross.
All shows are staged in the infield of Fairplex Park, with seating in the box seats and the grandstand. And the sound is really great. Last year the B-52’s totally rocked, playing hits like “Rock Lobster” and “Love Shack.” Here’s a fan’s video of “Strobe Light.”
Previous acts include Heart, Rihanna, Pat Benatar, Al Green, Toby Keith, Mariachi USA Fiesta. Hall & Oates were here a couple years ago – totally awesome. And guitar virtuoso Peter Frampton majorly rocked the Fair.
So, for now, join the club, get your cool T-shirt and updates on our concerts. The lineup will be announced soon. See you in the rockin’ grandstands!
