Spotlight: Spokane Fair unveils music lineup

By The Spokesman-Review

Since I rounded up a host of new concerts in Friday’s 7 section, several more have been announced.

The Spokane County Interstate Fair posted its lineup of Grandstand Concerts in September:

Sept. 8: Hotel California, a Salute to the Eagles, $5-$10;

Sept. 9: Herman’s Hermits with Peter Noone, $5-$10;

Sept. 10: The Band Perry, $25-$35;

Sept. 11: Eli Young Band, $15-$25;

Sept. 12: Shinedown, Papa Roach and Skillet, $25-$35;

Sept. 13: MercyMe, $15-$25.

Tickets go on sale July 8 through the fair box office, or Ticketswest, (800) 325-SEAT or www.ticketswest.com. Fair admission is separate. For information, visit www. spokanecounty.org/ fair/sif.

Also announced late in the week? Jason Aldean with Jake Owen and Thomas Rhett, Sept. 25 at the Spokane Arena. Tickets, through Live Nation, www.livenation.com, go on sale Friday.

Add to that the Nine Inch Nails show on Nov. 19, the OneRepublic/ Sara Bareilles show Sept. 4 and Bon Jovi on Oct. 6, and it’s shaping up to a jam-packed fall.


Meanwhile, this week brings a concert at the Bing Crosby Theater, 901 W. Sprague Ave., by the accordion band the Portatos. The five young accordionists are accompanied by a drummer and two bass players. The musical lineup includes “Wipe-Out” and “The Charleston.”

Tickets are $10 at the door, and the show begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
