We're sure that whole White House inauguration was a pretty cool place to perform for both Toby Keith and 3 Doors Down.

But when you get the chance to play the Minnesota State Fair Grandstand, that's something else – you can't turn that down. And neither act did.

Keith will play the Minnesota State Fair Grandstand on Sunday, Aug. 27, the fair announced Thursday. Opening for him will be 3 Doors Down.

Tickets go on sale March 10 at 10 a.m., and are anywhere from $23-$101.

Keith's been mega successful, starting way back with his first hit "Should've Been a Cowboy" and all the way through to his most recent single "A Few More Cowboys." He's sold more than 40 million albums.

Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons also coming

The State Fair also announced a Grandstand show for Aug. 28: Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons.

Tickets for that show go on sale March 10 at noon, and are $29.

The Minnesota State Fair runs Aug. 24 through Labor Day, Sept. 4. You can see all the Grandstand shows that have been announced here.
