The Jackson County Fair has announced the latest show to be added to this year’s entertainment schedule. “Rockfest” with Stone Sour, Alter Bridge and Skillet is scheduled for Monday, August 7th, 2017 at 7 p.m.
Stone Sour has sold over four million albums worldwide. The band’s debut album was released in 2002 to critical acclaim and was immediately confirmed as one of the most popular and significant hard rock albums of the 21st century. Their sophomore album “Come What(ever) May” followed in 2006, only to prove a greater accomplishment with a top 5 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 and a #1 entry onto Billboard’s “Rock Albums” chart. The album included the hit “Through the Glass”. The band has just unveiled their energetic hit “Fabuless,” proving that frontman Corey Taylor, and the band are far from slowing down.
Alter Bridge has been rocking the charts since 2004 and has recently finished their newest album The Last Hero. Their most recent single, “Show Me a Leader,” opens their newest album at a fast, untamed, pace echoing the next phase of Alter Bridge. The band has made their mark on the charts with hits like “Open Your Eyes,” “Isolation,” and “Ghost of Days Gone By.”
Skillet has been a rock favorite for over two decades and has sold over 11 million units worldwide. Having released nine full-length albums, their album Rise has been awarded the 2014 Rock Album of the Year and their double platinum single “Monster,” which has become the best-selling digital single in the history of Christian Music, is also the eighth most streamed rock song of 2015.
