If you remember in 2017, the one concert that many had bought tickets for and planned to see at the Missouri State Fair was the Southern Uprising Tour. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate. This year we're crossing our fingers.

Southern Uprising Tour: A Southern Rock Revival featuring Travis Tritt, The Charlie Daniels Band, The Marshall Tucker Band and The Outlaws is back on the Pepsi Grandstand Stage at the 2018 Missouri State Fair on Wednesday, August 15.

There were many requests to have the tour return since they weren't able to perform last August due to inclimate weather.

Starting at 9 a.m. Tuesday, June 26 through ticketmaster.com/Ticketmaster online or by phone at 800-796-6776/800-745-3000. All concerts seats are reserved. Convenience charges apply to all tickets.

The Missouri State Fair Box Office opens at noon on June 26 for walk-up orders (while tickets remain). Box office hours are:

June 26 - Aug 3, 12 p.m. - 6 p.m. (M-F)

Closed July 4 in observance of Fourth of July Holiday

Aug 6-8, 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Aug 9-19, 9 a.m. - 9 p.m.

There is a 10 ticket limit per household, per event until June 29. These tickets can be mailed or picked up at the box office. Grandstand tickets do not include admission to the Fair.
