PHOENIX — The Arizona State Fair announced four concerts on its 2016 slate, and it’s already evident there is going to be a wide musical variety.
The State Fair, which is scheduled to take place in Phoenix Oct. 7-30, released information through its Facebook page that headliners this year will feature hip hop star Iggy Azalea and popular country music duo Big & Rich.
The other concerts announced include hip hop artist B.o.B and a night labeled “Fiesta Friday,” which will host performances by MC Magic, Baby Bash, Amanda Perez, Brown Boy, MOBFAM and Kap-G.
Big & Rich will be the first to perform out of all that were announced, as they are set to play at the Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 8. One of their biggest songs took the country world over in 2004 with “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy),” and their latest hit “Lovin’ Lately” is making its rounds on country radio stations now.
B.o.B is scheduled to appear on Thursday, Oct. 13, at 7 p.m. He had many songs that were some of the most popular in the nation at times, including “Airplanes” and “Magic.”
“Fiesta Friday” will kick off on Friday, Oct. 14, at 7 p.m, while fair-goers can go see “Fancy” and “Black Widow” performed live by Iggy Azalea on Saturday, Oct. 15, at 7 p.m.
Reserved seating tickets for the shows go on sale Sept. 10.
