    There have been some greats at the state fair, like George Jones. But not so much this year. At least there will be some good Christian music. Something this country could use a lot more of!

    Actually, a $5 show like this would be one of the ONLY things that would make me even think about going to the fair. Parking headache, rubbing elbows with 100k strangers, eating food out of a trailer after "sanitizing" my hands from letting a goat eat from them, hoping I don't lose my kids in the process? Hope those that go have a fun, safe trip but it's definitely not for me

    @powderedtoatman, it's a $5 show at the state fair, not a mainstream phenom playing Walnut Creek or Alltel or whatever it's called now. I bet you an extra $5 he fills the place up. At 38 years old I remember when he had his 15 minutes and it was awesome. Alongwith MC Hammer and all dem other flashes in da pan. Vanilla Ice at the fair=good times

    this line-up makes the decision not go to the fair that much easier

  • Chad Johnson Jul 1, 2014

    Oh yeah son. May have to break out the 5.0

    THANK YOU!! His reality show is really good and I think it will be a fun concert. It's $5 if you're not a fan then don't one is forcing you people to attend.

  • Tracy Cook Jul 1, 2014

    Vanilla Ice...can't wait!!

  • allareequal Jul 1, 2014

    For all those who are clearly upset by Vanilla Ice playing at the State Fair - you know you don't have to go, right?

  • WralCensorsAreBias Jul 1, 2014

    Once again hack acts. I guess that's all you can get when you tell them what building/space they'll be playing at. They know no matter how hard they work at it Dorton will still render them sounding like an AM radio.

    Vanilla Ice, lol.

  • groovysus Jul 1, 2014

    Joan Jett is playing and you're touting Vanilla Ice (ugh) and Parmalee (who?!) as the lead acts? Tickets to see her are twice as much as Parmalee and three times as much to see Vanilla Ice so that really should have been a clue as to who should have a picture and a headline for this article.

  • blastamasta Jul 1, 2014

    It's gonna be "Cool as Ice" like his movie ;p

  • PowderedToastMan Jul 1, 2014

    Vanilla Ice? WHat a terrible choice. He won't bring anyone to the fair.


    Why are they charging 17 dollars for this DRUNK ? Saturday, Oct. 25: Trace Adkins ($17)

  • Bo Hart Jul 1, 2014

    seriously ! vanilla ice ? really !

  • Super Hans Jul 1, 2014

    Girlies on stand-by waiting just to say hi

  • Super Hans Jul 1, 2014

    Really. This is NC we're talking about, not NY.

    That would be pretty cool if we had a multi-million dollar earning entrepreneur / actor / entertainer come to our state fair, wouldn't it?

  • thomasew52 Jul 1, 2014

    Surprised Scotty Mccreery isn't on the card two or three nights.

  • Itsmyopinion67 Jul 1, 2014

    Vanilla Ice is a trip! I actually think that will be a fun show. Lighten up! Who do you want?? The Rolling Stones??? It's a State Fair!!

  • buldhead Jul 1, 2014

    Ah, sorry guys, but I think that the NC State Fair could get better "headliners" than these 2.

  • tobywilliamson1973 Jul 1, 2014

    So glad I stopped going to the fair years ago. Is this all the organizers can get. LOL.

  • hi_i_am_wade Jul 1, 2014

    Vanilla Ice. Seriously? That is a joke, right. Will the state fair also invite Marky Mark?

  • dlnorri Jul 1, 2014

    a two hour show by a one hit wonder.... couldn't they find looking glass. I can listen to Brandy four or five times in one night. Or maybe Dr. CC opening and closeing each set with strokin' and singing patches a couple times in between...... And if you have too much to drink he will offer to drive you home.

  • UpChuck Jul 1, 2014

    This is wonderful news.

  • birkie74693 Jul 1, 2014

    Vanilla Ice? What's the deal, were the Captain and Tenille booked already?

  • dwntwnboy2 Jul 1, 2014

    Joan Jett!! YAY!!!! Been hoping she would play around here soon. She's a great show! Actually a reason to go to the fair this year!!

  • 45ACP Jul 1, 2014

    Yeah. He'll be showing up in his 5.0, with ragtop down, so his hair can blow.........

  • vance203 Jul 1, 2014

    Vanilla Ice leads State Fair entertainment? Who knew it was 1990?

  • raleighboy524 Jul 1, 2014

    Vanilla Ice? Throwback Thursday? More like throw-up Thursday.
