Tickets are going on sale very soon for a special performance at the upcoming Lyon County Fair.
Blackhawk will be performing at the grandstand Aug. 12, and tickets go on sale Tuesday for the show. Hitt Entertainment owner Travis Hitt was pleased Blackhawk agreed to come to Emporia next month.
Ricky Fugitt will open.
Blackhawk formed in the early 1990s and is known for hits like "I'm Not Strong Enough to Say No," "Every Once in a While" and "I Sure Can Smell the Rain." Its new single, "Brothers of the Southland," debuts Tuesday.
Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Revenues before expenses will be donated to Lyon County 4-H clubs.
