The first two acts for the 2019 season of the Great Minnesota Get Together have been announced and it has a very 90's vibe to it! But I'm okay with that!
Having not toured in 10+ years it'll be great to see Hootie & The Blowfish again. They take the grandstand stage for night 1 August 22nd. Frontman Darius Rucker went solo as a country singer and has been very successful. Having not forgotten his old band however, they’ll be promoting a new album on the upcoming Group Therapy Tour. Ticket go on sale Friday, December 7th at 10 a.m. for $51-$90.
No stranger to the Minnesota State Fair having performed many, many times, Weird Al will be coming back in 2019 performing at the grandstand, Aug. 27th. If you are an old school fan though it might help to note that he will be getting rather serious this time out and performing with a full orchestra on his Strings Attached Tour. But who knows maybe he'll do an all strings cover of Weezer's Africa, you never know!
Those tickets will all be $31 starting at noon Friday.
