The hard-rock sound of Night Ranger will be thumping at the Northwest Washington Fair in Lynden on Thursday, Aug. 17, part of The Bank of the Pacific Grandstand Entertainment Series.
Night Ranger’s instantly recognizable single hits include “Sister Christian,” “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me,” “When You Close Your Eyes” and the anthemic “(You Can Still) Rock In America,” plus “Sentimental Street,” “Goodbye,” “Sing Me Away” and “Four in the Morning.” The band also was one of the first big “video” bands, with over 10 No. 1 videos on MTV.
“Night Ranger truly epitomizes the sound of the 1980s, while at the same time transcending it with their guitar-heavy, melodic brand of hard rock,” said Jim Baron, general manager of the Northwest Washington Fair. “The band’s unparalleled talent, energy, and creativity make them popular to see in person, which is why they’ve performed in more than 3,000 live shows.”
Tickets to see Night Ranger will go on sale to the public at 9 a.m. June 8. Preferred seats are available for $25; general admission is free. The grandstand tickets don’t include gate admission for the fair, which is required. People wishing to buy tickets before they are offered to the public may become a Friend of the Fair by registering for free at http://nwwafair.com/email.aspx.
Tickets already are available to see nationally renowned standup comedian “Fluffy” Gabriel Iglesias at the fair on Aug. 19 and “American Idol” winner Scotty McCreery on Aug. 18. The rest of the entertainment will be announced later this spring.
Tickets can be purchased at www.nwwafair.com and the fair office, 1775 Front St., Lynden, and by phone at (877) 699-FAIR. The 2017 Northwest Washington Fair will be presented Aug. 14-19.
