State Fair announces more headlining acts, including Boyz II Men

Earlier today, the Wisconsin State Fair announced three additional headliners playing the Main Stage during this year's fair that runs from Thursday, Aug. 6 through Sunday, Aug. 16 at Wisconsin State Fair Park in West Allis.

Gospel group Bethel Music will grace the big stage on Monday, Aug. 10 at 7:30 p.m. In the past two decades, Bethel Music has grown from being a local church music ministry in Redding, California, to a global outreach made up of more than one dozen songwriters and worship leaders. An opening act will be announced at a later time. All seating for this show is reserved, and tickets will be $39 and $29.

Country music duo Brothers Osborne will make its Main Stage debut on Wednesday, Aug. 12. John and TJ Osborne grew up in a small Maryland town writing and playing songs for friends and family in their father's shed. The siblings have since received four CMA and five ACM trophies, including Video of the Year wins for their Top 10 Grammy-nominated Platinum single "It Ain't My Fault." Singer/songwriter Ryan Hurd will open the show. Tickets will be $52, $47 and $42.

Finally, iconic R&B group Boyz II Men will bring decades of hits to the Main Stage on Friday, Aug. 14. The trio holds the distinction of being the best-selling R&B group of all time, with an astounding 64 million albums sold. Singer, dancer and actor Ginuwine will warm up the crowd. All seating for this show is reserved, and tickets will be $49, $44 and $39.

Tickets for all shows go on sale Friday, February 28 at 9 a.m. at and the State Fair Ticket Office. Print-at-home and mail-order options are available online, and service fees will apply.
