These are two names you've definitely heard before.

Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac and Garrison Keillor of Lake Wobegon will both play Grandstand shows at the 2017 Minnesota State Fair.

The fair announced both concerts this morning.

Nicks will play on Friday, Aug. 25 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $49-$90, and go on sale Friday, June 9 at 10 a.m.

Nicks of course has a career that's spanned decades, starting with Fleetwood Mac in 1975. She also did a live duet of the classic track "Landslide" with Harry Styles just recently, if you're into that.

As for Keillor, his Grandstand gig will be Friday, Sept. 1 at 7:45 p.m. Tickets will be $28 or $36, with tickets on sale at noon on Friday, June 9.

Keillor of course hosted the radio show Prairie Home Companion for approximately 1 million years before stepping down last year (Chris Thile from the band Punch Brothers now hosts.) Keillor has stayed busy, touring around the country.

You can get tickets for either show at etix.com. by phone at 800-514-3849, or at the State Fairgrounds Ticket Office.

The fair has announced a bunch of shows so far, including Pentatonix, Toby Keith, 3 Doors Down, John Mellencamp, Jim Gaffigan, and Nickelback.
