Never let it be said that we lollygag when it comes to planning for the next N.C. State Fair. We’ve already lined up one of our Dorton Arena performers for 2012 and it’s none other than Scott McCreery, the Garner-teen-turned-American Idol.
He will perform at the 2012 fair Monday, Oct. 15, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 and go on sale Monday, Dec. 5, at 11 a.m., in time for holiday shopping. You’ll be able to buy them at www.ncstatefair.org. There will be a six-ticket limit per buyer. You’ll also have the option to buy your gate admission tickets for the 2012 N.C. State Fair along with your concert tickets.
Scotty’s first CD, “Clear As Day,” recently went gold and has produced the hits “Love You This Big” and “The Trouble with Girls.”
We’re still working on the rest of the concert lineup, and we’ll announce it in the summer.
The 2012 N.C. State Fair will take place Oct. 11-21.
