2 more Grandstand acts secured for the Minnesota State Fair

Eleven of the 12 nights worth of shows are now scheduled.
Logic, ZZ Top

The Minnesota State Fair announced two new shows for this summer's Grandstand Concert Series. 

On Thursday, August 29, Grammy-nominated rapper Logic will take the stage, and on the final day of the fair, Monday, September 2, classic rockers ZZ Top will perform along with special guest, Cheap Trick. 

Tickets to see Logic go on sale at noon on Friday, May 10. Ticket prices are $43-$55. All tickets are general admission plaza-level standing room only.  

Tickets for ZZ Top and Cheap Trick cost $39 and $49, and also go on sale at noon Friday, May 10. Unlike the Logic show, these tickets are all reserved seating. 

Logic, 29, has sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden in New York and The Forum in Los Angeles, is known for his hit single "1-800-273-8255," which is a rap about mental health and suicide prevention awareness. The song's title is the number to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. 

ZZ Top, featuring Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hall and Frank Beard, has been around since 1969, making them the longest-running major rock band with its original members intact. They were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2004 after three-plus decades of playing smash hits like "La Grange," Gimme All Your Lovin'," "Sharp Dressed Man" and "Legs." 

Cheap Trick is arguably best known for its 1978 single "I Want You to Want Me."
