On August 8, the Happy Together Tour 2014 will play the Grandstand stage. The tour is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year, and it currently includes The Turtles (featuring Flo & Eddie), Chuck Negron (formerly of Three Dog Night), Gary U.S. Bonds, Mitch Ryder and The Detroit Wheels, and Gary Lewis & The Playboys. Combines, the bands have recorded such timeless hits as "Devil with a Blue Dress On", "Good Golly Miss Molly", "Happy Together", "Elenore", “Joy to the World”, “An Old-Fashioned Love Song”, "School Is Out", "Sock it to Me Baby", "Everybody Loves a Clown", and many more. Tickets for the 8 p.m. show will go on sale in the spring for $25.

On August 14, country superstar Jake Owen brings the Days of Gold Tour to the Iowa State Fair's Grandstand. The tour is named for Owen's fourth studio album, which debuted in December. The country singer has won an Academy of Country Music Award for "Top New Male Vocalist" and an American Country Award for "Breakthrough Artist of the Year". The Eli Young Band and The Cadillac Three will join Owen on this leg of the tour. The Eli Young Band has three #1 Country singles to their credit, and The Cadillac Three just charted their first hit, "The South", off of their self-titled debut album. Tickets for this 7 p.m. show will be $40 when they go on sale in a few weeks.
