PHOENIX – The Arizona State Fair revealed the first non-country show for its 2019 concert series — and then added yet another country artist.

On Thursday, the fair announced that Oct. 11 would be Fiesta Friday, featuring old-school rap and hip-hop acts Lil Rob, DJ Kane, Kid Frost and Phoenix’s own NB Ridaz.

The next day, “People Are Crazy” singer Billy Currington became the fourth country musician in the lineup. He’ll actually be hitting the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum stage on opening night of the fair, Oct. 4.

The big annual event at the fairgrounds at McDowell Road and 19th Avenue will run Wednesdays through Sundays through Oct. 27.

Concert admission is free with fair admission, but prime reserved seats will be available for a fee starting July 12.

Currington joined genre-mates Chase Rice, Lee Brice and Trace Adkins in this year’s lineup.

Additional concert announcements will be rolled out in the coming days.
