Alan Jackson Live In Studio

With the weather mimicking summer-like temperatures, it’s only fitting that we start thinking about music of the great Minnesota Get-Together.

Two evening acts have been confirmed for this year’s Grandstand Concert Series, including the Happy Together Tour featuring The Turtles with Flo & Eddie, The Monkees lead singer Micky Dolenz, Gary Puckett & the Union Gap, The Grass Roots and The Buckinghams.

The Happy Together Tour will perform at 8 p.m. Monday Aug. 27. Tickets are $18 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 24.

Another big name hitting the Grandstand stage, Alan Jackson has been scheduled to perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 24. Tickets are $40 and go on sale at noon Saturday, March 24. An opening act will be announced at a later date.

Tickets are available at the State Fair website or etix.com or by calling 1-800-514-3849.

Additional acts will be announced in the coming months. The 2012 Minnesota State Fair runs Aug. 23 to Labor Day, Sept. 3.
