London-based Dire Straits Legacy’s last stop on its summer tour will also close out the Chevrolet Music Series at the Great New York State Fair on Labor Day. The eight-member band will take the Chevy Park stage at 6 p.m. on Monday, September 5.
Dire Straits burst onto the pop rock music scene in the late 1970s, and performed through the 1980s and into the 1990s, amassing hits including “Romeo & Juliet,” “Money for Nothing” and “Walk of Life.” Later, in 2015, some of the group’s members reunited as Dire Straits Legacy to resurrect the music that established Dire Straits as legendary British rockers.
This performance will be the band’s first performance at the Fair. The crew was originally scheduled to perform on August 24, 2021, but postponed due to travel restrictions.
All concerts in the Chevrolet Music Series are free with Fair admission. Concerts performed at the Chevy Park stage in the New York Experience Festival Grounds (formerly known as The Experience Stage) are located at the rear of the Fairgrounds, beyond the Midway. All concerts at the Fair are sponsored by Chevrolet.
