Night Ranger to play State Fair's Chevy Court this summer

Night Ranger

You've heard their rocker songs in the "Rock Band" and "Guitar Hero" video games, the Broadway show "Rock of Ages," in movies and on television. This August, you can hear rock n' roll band Night Ranger play Chevy Court at the State Fair.

Night Ranger, the quintet that climbed the pop and rock charts in the 1980's, is set to perform Tuesday, August 26 at 8:00 p.m.

Original members Jack Blades, Brad Gillis, and Kelly Keagy will be there, along with Joel Hoekstra and Eric Levy.

Next Tuesday, the band will release its eleventh studio album, "High Road" - which promises to blend classic, high-energy Night Ranger sound.

The band, perhaps best known for its 1984 hit "Sister Christian," has sold more than 17 million units worldwide, and has several platinum and gold-certified albums, since its debut in the early 1980's.

Like all Chevy Court performances, Night Ranger's concert is free with a day's admission to the Fair.

Additional musical act announcements are expected in the coming days and weeks.

The State Fair kicks off Thursday, August 21.
