Two ‘80s rock concerts added to NY State Fair lineup

Two more concerts have been added to the Great New York State Fair’s 2022 lineup.

Resurrection – A Journey Tribute will perform at Chevy Park at 1 p.m. on Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 5, the final day of this year’s NYS Fair. The Journey tribute band promises to deliver the “most authentic 80s Journey concert experience,” including matching Steve Perry’s signature lead vocals on hits like “Separate Ways,” “Open Arms,” “Any Way You Want It,” “Don’t Stop Believin’” and “Faithfully.”

And if you want more ‘80s rock, Great White will play Chevy Court at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 25. The hair band, featuring original member Mark Kendall on guitar and backing vocals, charted with songs like “Once Bitten, Twice Shy” and “Rock Me.”

All concerts in the Chevrolet Music Series are free with Fair admission.
