First band announced for 2018 Tulare County Fair’s concert series

Spring may be in the air but plans for the September 2018 Tulare County Fair’s free concert series are well underway.

Today the fair announced the first band for its 2018 concert series, Queen Nation, a tribute to the music of Queen. The band is slated to perform on Saturday, Sept.15 at 8:00 p.m. on the Budweiser Stage. All concerts are included with the price of fair admission. Tickets and discount promotions for the Tulare County Fair will launch Tuesday, July 10 at

“Queen Nation was a tremendous hit at last year’s fair,” said Pamela Fyock, chief executive officer of the Tulare County Fair. “Our fair guests have been clamoring for this band to return ever since their encore number in 2017.”

There is little doubt among the pure rock community that the legendary band Queen and lead performer Freddie Mercury earn high ranks as one of the most powerful and iconic groups in rock history. Queen, the kings of arena rock, performed to packed stadiums around the globe for over two decades. Upon his death in 1991, a huge void was left in the rock concert world, which to this day has not yet been matched. Queen Nation, a tribute to Queen, was formed in 2004. The mission of the show is to carry on the musical torch and pay homage to the golden age of vintage Queen concerts.

Queen Nation’s live 90-minute production of Queen’s greatest hits preserves the image, sound, and stage persona of vintage Queen. Audiences are amazed at the accuracy of Queen Nation’s live retrospective journey through such Queen songs as “We Will Rock You,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Are the Champions,” and “Another One Bites the Dust.”

The Tulare County Fair’s mission is to showcase agriculture and create family fun. The five-day fair opens on Sept. 12 and runs through Sept. 16, 2018. The annual celebration includes scrumptious food, celebrity entertainment, interactive children’s activities, hundreds of animals, a wildlife adventure, a thrilling carnival, exciting motorsports, a rodeo, an impressive Junior Livestock Auction, and more. The Tulare County Fair has been a community tradition for more than a century. For more information visit #TulareFair2018
