SPRINGFIELD (AP) — The Illinois State Fair might not give you Meat Loaf, but how about Styx and Tesla?
Styx — a band with Illinois roots — and Tesla will lead the Aug. 19 grandstand lineup after 1970s rocker Meat Loaf canceled.
Tickets go on sale Saturday through Ticketmaster. They may be purchased at the State Fair grandstand beginning Monday.
Admission ranges from $35 for VIP seating to $13 for certain track tickets.
Styx is beginning its second decade of averaging over 100 shows a year. It’s known for late-70s and early 80s hits such as “Come Sail Away” and “The Best of Times.”
Tesla hit it big a decade later with “Love Song” and “What You Give.”
