RALEIGH — “American Idol” winner Scotty McCreery will perform at the 2012 N.C. State Fair on Monday, Oct. 15. Tickets will go on sale on Monday, Dec. 5, in time for holiday shopping.
“It may be a little early to be thinking about next year’s fair, but we think Scotty tickets will make the perfect gift for country music lovers on your shopping list,” said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. “We’re excited to have our hometown winner perform at the State Fair next year.”
McCreery is from Garner and won the 2011 season of “American Idol.” His first CD, “Clear As Day,” has produced the hits “Love You This Big” and “The Trouble with Girls.”
Tickets for the 2012 show will go on sale at 11 a.m. Monday, Dec. 5, at www.ncstatefair.org. Tickets are $25. There will be a six-ticket limit per buyer. Ticket buyers will also have the option to purchase gate admission tickets for the 2012 N.C. State Fair at the time of purchase, as concert tickets do not include fair admission.
The 2012 N.C. State Fair will be held Oct. 11-21. The rest of the concert lineup will be announced in the summer.
