SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- The Illinois State Fair is adding more performances to its grandstand line-up -- including the return of Styx and REO Speedwagon.
State Fair Manager Amy Bliefnick announced that those classic rock groups will play an Aug. 10 show at the fairgrounds in Springfield.
In a statement Friday, Bliefnick also announced that the fair has booked The Band Perry, country singer Billy Currington, Gary Allan and Thompson Square.
The fair's line-up already included country star Toby Keith and the cast of Million Dollar Quartet.
Bliefnick says the fair is on its way to delivering the type of "top-notch" entertainment fairgoers expect.
This year's Illinois State Fair will be Aug. 8-18.
