Rodney Atkins with Heidi Newfield (newly solo - used to sing lead for Trick Pony)
Those are the country shows which are always sold as a "concert pass" along with seats to the classic car show, demo derby and Enduro race.
I'm expecting a ton of people to show up for Taylor Swift (you can by separate tickets to each concert for $50 or something and not get the "grandstand pass", which I think is goofy), but anyway I think there will be way more in attendance for hers than any other.
I'm also kind of expecting high numbers for the Gary Allen concert; not necessarily that he's that great of an artist (I can take him or leave him) but his parents live in a small town just 45 minutes or so from here. Gary has never lived in ND but his dad was born and raised here. Gary grew up in CA where his dad spent most of his time in the military and when he retired they moved back to ND.
I've gotten to see Dierks Bentley at a casino just a ways from here a few years ago. He puts on a really good show!
The rock concerts (sold seperate from the country) are Motley Crue and somebody else yet to be announced. I talked to one of the workers this morning and they're still waiting to finalize the contract with somebody but she wouldn't say who.
I'll take pics of the cars if we go to the car shows. Depends on if we find a sitter that night or not. I know the kids wouldn't like it; they'd just be bugging us to go on rides all night.
BTW, I'm still looking for a date to Motley Crue is someone wants to go with me.
