Obstructed View Tickets for Luke Bryan Concert to Be Released

Due to the overwhelming demand for tickets to see Luke Bryan at the Great New York State Fair, tickets for obstructed view seating will be released for sale on Friday, July 5.

Approximately 1,200 obstructed view tickets will be available.  Most are in groups of no more than two or three seats.  Obstructed view seats are only made available when nearly all other seats are sold because the view of the stage is obstructed by the Grandstand’s support beams. 

The obstructed view tickets will sell for $60 or $50.

In addition, a small number of single seat tickets remain available in the $60 or $50 sections.

The tickets will be available online through the Fair’s official seller,, or by calling 1-800-514-3849 beginning at 9 a.m. July 5.  The Fair’s box office will not be open for this sale.

Tickets remain available through for the shows in the Grandstand lineup that have already been announced, including for Carly Rae Jepsen, Reba, Toby Keith, Jeff Dunham, and Lynyrd Skynyrd.  Your concert ticket, if purchased in advance of the show, includes admission to the Fair.  Another Grandstand concert will be announced in the near future.

The New York State Fair runs from August 22 September 2, 2013.  The Fair’s theme is “Sharing the Bounty and Pride of New York.” 

In addition to the annual New York State Fair, the Fairgrounds host dozens of agricultural events throughout the year, including some of the Northeast’s most prestigious horse and livestock shows.

The home of the Great New York State Fair is a 375-acre exhibit and entertainment complex that operates all year. A year-round schedule of events is available on the Fair’s website.  Find The Great New York State Fair on Facebook or follow NYS Fair on Twitter.
