The Oak Ridge Boys will perform Sunday evening at the Kentucky State Fair. It will be their 35th straight annual performance in Louisville, 34 of them at the fair.
“Our record for the most consecutive dates in one place is the Kentucky State Fair,” Allen said in a telephone interview during a tour stop in Montana. “We’re at 31 straight dates at Merrillville, Indiana–the Holiday Star Theater there–but actually we opened that place.”
The Oak Ridge Boys are wrapping up a tour in support of their release, The Boys are Back.
Allen says a lot of the band’s relatives typically come up from Tennessee for the Kentucky State Fair show.
The Oak Ridge Boys perform at 8:00pm Sunday at Cardinal Stadium. The concert is free, but fair admission is required.
