Platinum-selling singer/songwriter Brett Eldredge has established himself as one of country music’s smoothest-singing vocal powerhouses, biggest radio heavy-hitters and most entertaining, arena-packing showmen. His current hit “Love Someone” recently topped the country radio chart and is the third single from his self-titled record, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and the all-genre Top Albums Sales chart. The record has yielded the Gold-certified hit “Somethin’ I’m Good At” and most recently the Platinum-certified hit “The Long Way.” The latter tune lends its name to his critically acclaimed and first ever sold-out headlining tour. Eldredge’s live shows feature his seven chart-topping, Gold and Platinum-certified singles spanning three albums. The Paris, IL native released his Christmas record Glow in October of 2016 and earned an additional No. 1 song on the Holiday Music and Adult Contemporary charts with “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” a duet alongside GRAMMY-winner Meghan Trainor. The deluxe edition, featuring five brand new evergreen tracks, was released in October 2018.
Reserved; tickets are seat-specific. 2nd level seats are slightly behind and higher than the Terrace seats; 4th level seats are at the front of the Grandstand balcony. Both areas have unobstructed views.
Unreserved; General Admission. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. 3rd level seats are behind the 2nd level; 5th level seats are behind the 4th level, all under a roof supported by pillars (some seats have obstructed views).
If you already have Fair admission (examples: Best Pass Ever season pass, Exhibit entrant), you can buy this concert ticket type, which does not include Fair admission. These tickets are sold exclusively through the Fair's Box Office.
Doors to the Grandstand typically open 90 minutes before the show begins. This is an approximate time and may vary depending on crowd size and other factors.
If you are in a general admission area where it is first-come seating, a line-up area will be designated with signage in the Plaza de Mexico area. If you have a ticket with a specific seat, enjoy the Fair activities until you’d like to come to your seat.
My tickets are at Will Call. How do I pick them up?
Tickets ordered through Ticketmaster for pickup at Will Call will be available the day of the concert starting at 10:00AM. The Will Call booth is at the O’Brien Gate, informally known as the “front gate.” At the booth, present your Ticketmaster confirmation number, along with a valid ID (state-issued driver’s license or ID card, passport or military identification).
Can I get something to eat or drink during the concert?
Yes. The stage area has many food-and-beverage locations, or you can buy something from a Fair food vendor and bring it into the concert area.
Can I use my camera?
Any photography activities that may be deemed a nuisance to the enjoyment of others is prohibited. Personal “point and shoot” cameras are permitted, but do not block the view of people around you.
The following photography items are strictly prohibited, and may not be used during concerts:
No flash photography
No video or audio recording
No cameras with removable lenses
No selfie sticks
What are the authorized ticket sellers for Fair concert tickets?
There are only two authorized ticket sellers: Ticketmaster and the Fairgrounds Box Office. We strongly recommend you never purchase Fair concert or festival tickets from any other source. Tickets purchased from non-authorized sources could be counterfeit or stolen, which means the ticket will not be honored, and you will lose the money you paid.
