  • Academy of Country Music’s 2012 Female Vocalist of the Year and Grammy-award winning artist Miranda Lambert will perform at the M&T Bank Grandstand at the 2012 Delaware State Fair on Saturday, July 28.  The show, presented by Delaware Lottery, will begin at 7:30 p.m. 
    Tickets for the concert go on sale Friday, April 20 at 10 a.m., and can be purchased by visiting www.DelawareStateFair.com.
    “As we are fulfilling our 2012 concert lineup, we are very pleased to have Miranda Lambert perform at the Delaware State Fair.  We are very excited to have Miranda close out the Fair along with fireworks provided by M&T Bank,” said Danny Aguilar, Assistant General Manager and Director of Marketing.
    In her hit single “Baggage Claim,” Miranda Lambert sings about the kind of luggage you wish would get lost. “I have been dragging around your sensitive ego,” she tells an ex-friend or lover -- soon concluding, with characteristic swagger, that she’ll “drop your troubles off at the conveyor belt/I hand you a ticket to go get it yourself.” Mr. Needy is left doing loops on the suitcase carousel while Lambert’s rocking out in the unloading zone.
    With the release of “Four the Record,” Lambert comes bearing some baggage of her own – the precious kind, well-earned over the course of three highly loved (and unanimously platinum) prior albums. Her accolades could fill a whole set of trunks, including recently winning the Academy of Country Music’s album of the year.
    Tickets are $51 for track and stadium seats and $46 for grandstand and clubhouse seating. Tickets for the new orchestra pit section are $76. The orchestra pit section that brings the fan closer to the artist than ever before. The pit section is located just feet away from the stage and will be general admission, standing room only. Due to the limited number of tickets available for this area make sure you sign-up for our email list for updates and opportunities to purchase tickets in advance.
    The pit tickets can be purchased under the PRICE, LOCATION, & SECTION tabs. Pit tickets cannot be purchased under “Best Available.” The “pit” is general admission standing room only (with no chairs) and tickets are priced at $76.
    All other tickets (track, stadium, grandstand, and clubhouse) will be reserved seating with chairs. Concert attendance does require the purchase of a separate gate admission ticket.
    The 2012 Delaware State Fair will be held July 19-28. Tickets for Jason Aldean, Sugarland, Larry the Cable Guy, Casting Crowns, and Justin Moore with Colt Ford are already on sale. Other artists in the Delaware State Fair Summer Concert Series will be announced shortly.
