The Beach Boys Coming to Kansas State Fair on September 15

Iconic band to close the 2018 Fair with beloved summertime hits

Hutchinson, Kan. – The Kansas State Fair is thrilled to announce an end-of-summer celebration featuring The Beach Boys at the Nex-Tech Wireless Grandstand on the final night of the Kansas State Fair, Sat., Sept. 15.

The Beach Boys have continued to create and perform with the same bold imagination and style that marked their explosive debut over 50 years ago. In 2013, their Capitol Records release Sounds of Summer (RIAA certified triple platinum with over three million in sales and climbing), and its companion The Warmth of the Sun marked a resurgence in Beach Boys interest that again rocked the world.

The Beach Boys' accolades stretch decades, including multiple Grammy Award nominations for "Good Vibrations" in 1967, a 1989 Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for "Kokomo," a 2001 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and Hall of Fame inductions in 1994 for "Good Vibrations" and in 2017 for "I Get Around."

Tickets for go on sale on May 2 at 1:00 p.m., with an “early bird” deal that waives the $5 per ticket processing fee if you purchase by May 10. Prices include gate admission for the day of performance if purchased by August 20.
