New York Ag Connection - 07/06/2018

Rock radio mainstays Collective Soul, the Georgia band behind the hit song "Shine," will perform at 2 p.m. Sept. 1 on the Chevy Court stage at the 2018 Great New York State Fair. Free concerts at Chevy Court, which drew more than a quarter million people in 2017, complement Central New York Rising, the region's comprehensive strategy to grow the economy.

"Our commitment to a diverse lineup continues with Collective Soul, which brings some of the great rock songs of the 90's to our stage. This will be a terrific show and I urge everyone to come by Chevy Court to enjoy the band," said Acting Fair Director Troy Waffner.

The Chevy Court stage is the home of up to 26 national touring acts each year. A diverse 2017 lineup, including performers and groups such as Migos, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Earth Wind & Fire, The Beach Boys and Three Doors Down drew 264,600 fairgoers. Chevy Court won two Syracuse Area Music Awards in 2017 as People's Choice for Favorite Venue for Live Music and Favorite Festival or Music Series. The Fair was nominated for Fair of the Year by the International Entertainment Buyers association, the trade organization for live entertainment industry professionals. Free concerts at Chevy Court are sponsored by Chevrolet.

Collective Soul rose to international fame in 1993 with the rock anthem "Shine." The multi-Platinum quintet has a catalog of #1 hits under their belts that has helped shape and define alternative rock. They've sold over 20 million records worldwide and continue to average over one million Spotify streams per month. They were inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in 2009. The band's latest live album, LIVE, was released December 8, 2017 on Suretone Records.

The New York State Fair, operated by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, runs from Aug. 22 to Sept. 3. The Fair's mission, reflected in its theme, "FIND YOUR GREAT," is to showcase the best of New York agriculture while providing top-quality entertainment.
