Christian bands added to Indiana State Fair lineup

Sunday, March 27, 2011

INDIANAPOLIS -- Two Christian music groups have been added to a growing Indiana State Fair concert lineup in the Hoosier Lottery Grandstand as Third Day and MercyMe will bring their inspirational sounds to the stage Wednesday, Aug. 10, at 7:30 p.m.

From its first album in 1996 to its 15th album released just a few months ago, Third Day has been rockin' audiences and rackin' up awards consistently for 15 years.

Known not only as a great Christian band, but also as an incredible rock band, Mac Powell and company have played to millions of fans in sold out arenas all over the world.

The group's latest album, "Move," features the chart-topping single, "Make Your Move," to go along with previous No. 1 hits, "Call My Name," "Mountain of God," "I Believe," and others.

MercyMe has a little softer sound than Third Day, but has been just as successful in its 10 years at the top of the Contemporary Christian music scene. The band stormed the Top 40, Adult Contemporary and Christian charts with its crossover hit, "I Can Only Imagine," and hasn't looked back.

Since then, the group has sold more than five million records with 19 No. 1 singles, including "Homesick," "So Long Self," and "In The Blink Of An Eye."

Tickets are $35 and $25 and include State Fair admission.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, April 8, at 10 a.m., at the State Fairgrounds Box Office and all Ticketmaster locations.

They may also be purchased through Ticketmaster charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000 or online at www.ticketmaster.com.

For more information, call the Indiana State Fairgrounds Box Office at 1-317-927-7601, or log on to www.indianastatefair.com.

This is great! My wife and I saw these two groups, along with a lot of others on an all-Christian cruise we took a couple of years ago. What an awesome time!
