The 2013 Fallon County Fair promises to transport classic rock fans back to “The Best of Times” as the Chicago-based band, Styx, headlines the August 17, Saturday Night Show.

Known for their power ballads and big rock sound, Styx topped the charts repeatedly in the late 70s and early 80s. The song that started it all for the group was “Lady”. Other hits that followed included “Come Sail Away”, “Babe”, “Too Much Time on My Hands”, “Mr. Roboto”, and “Show Me the Way”. Like many hard rocking bands of that era, Styx has undergone some personnel changes. The current version of the band includes James Young and Tommy Shaw from the 70s, along with Todd Sucheman, Lawrence Gowan, and Ricky Phillips. Original Styx member, Chuck Panozzo, also makes guest appearances with the band from time to time.

Keith Raymond will be opening the show at 7:30 p.m. in the grandstands with Styx performing at 8:00 p.m.

While the night show might feature the most famous attraction of the fair, there’s loads of fun to be had from Wednesday, August 14, through Sunday, August 18.
