Tickets are on sale now for a big concert in Emporia next month.
Blackhawk is coming to Emporia on Aug. 12. Promoter Travis Hitt is pleased Lyon County residents can enjoy an act with nearly 20 years worth of hits. He's also glad the concert will help Lyon County youth.
Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. You can use Lyon County Fair grandstand tickets, in which case you will need two tickets per concertgoer. You can also purchase concert-only tickets at the Sutherlands customer service desk.
