Eddie Money, whose huge hits have made him a popular performer for many years, will be the opening night highlight of the Experience Stage in the New York Experience festival area of the Fairgrounds. His show begins at 7 pm on opening day of the 2018 Great New York State Fair. Admission that day is $1. This will be Eddie Money's fifth appearance at the Fair.
Eddie Money continues to delight new and old fans alike at venues throughout the country. He burst onto the scene in 1977 with his debut album that went double platinum with hits like "Baby Hold On" and "Two Tickets to Paradise." The former New York City police officer trainee continued his success streak with several hits, including some of the era's most creative videos for songs like ""Think I'm in Love"" and "Shakin'."
In 1986, Money released the platinum-certified album "Can't Hold Back," which features the Grammy-nominated duet "Take Me Home Tonight" with Ronnie Spector.
Money is starring in the AXS series “Real Money,” which has been greenlit for a second season.
Several national touring acts will perform on the Experience Stage on the western end of the Fairgrounds, along with a mix of major bands from across Upstate New York and national touring tribute bands.
