Motownphilly back again!

After calling off the fair last year for only the sixth time in its history, we're excited to tell you about a concert announcement from the Iowa State Fair that just made 2021 a whole lot brighter.

It's a night of '90s nostalgia when R & B icons Boyz II Men play on the Grandstand on August 15 at 8 p.m. Joining them will be special guests Bell Biv DeVoe. Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 19 at 10 a.m. starting at $20 through Etix. Charge by phone at (800)-514-3849 or buy at the Iowa State Fair website. Questions about COVID-19 safety precautions at the fair and its concerts can be answered here. It notes that the Grandstand is located outdoors (obviously) and all tickets are on sale at this time, but "precautions will be followed per CDC guidelines as of August 2021".

Other performers that have been announced for the 2021 Iowa State Fair include:

  • Casting Crowns with special guest Jordan Feliz - August 12 
  • Blake Shelton with special guest Matt Stell - August 13
  • Sam Hunt with special guest Kip Moore - August 14

Boyz II Men were in Cedar Rapids a couple of years ago, at the McGrath Amphitheatre before this Coronavirus pandemic locked us all down. It was a show I really enjoyed and I can't wait to go back to that venue. Meanwhile, it's all systems go so far for this show and the 2021 Iowa State Fair itself.

Concerts, oh how we miss them!
