Country Music Legend Mel Tillis returns to the Nebraska State Fair for Older Nebraskan’s Day on Wednesday, August 28, for two shows at 11am and 3pm. The concert is free with wristband. According to Chelsey Jungck, Nebraska State Fair events and entertainment director, “ They invited Mel back this year with two shows to accommodate everyone who wanted to see him in 2010.”
“In 2010, the Nebraska State Fairs first year in Grand Island, Mel Tillis did only one show based and the response in Grand Island was so overwhelming; we simply weren’t prepared for the hoards of fans. Says jungck”., If you remember, the state fair board had to turn away fans and fairgoers, that year prompting the idea behind the two shows. Those wanting reserved seat tickets for the concert may sign up for the State Fair Fan Club online. For $30, members will receive one reserved seat ticket, one gate admission, a fan club pin and fan club credentials. Fan Club sign up will begin later this spring.
