Legendary hard rockers Night Ranger will perform on Saturday, July 16, at the Stanislaus County Fair. Night Ranger will appear on the Coors Light Variety Free Stage at 8:30 p.m. The concert is hosted by The Hawk 104.1 and is free with the price of Fair admission.

“We are excited to get our rock out with these rock legends!” said Jose Pina, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. “This night of rock will sure leave a lasting impression.”

In August Night Ranger released their 12th studio album, “ATBPO” (which stands for And The Band Played On), an ode to making music during the COVID era. After narrowing down the song selection and tightening them up to their well-known rock ‘n roll sound, the band hit the studio, although separately. Ten years on, and two highly acclaimed albums later, “High Road” and “Don’t Let Up,” the band’s latest studio work shows them still burning with that high octane hard rock energy. Having sold over 17 million albums worldwide, performed across more than 4,000 stages, and captivated a radio audience that exceeds 1 billion, Night Ranger has both epitomized and transcended the arena rock sound and style well beyond that era. The band continue to grow their ever-evolving fan-base and they are proof that powerful songs alongside, incredibly talented musicians is the perfect formula for continued success.

Night Ranger has earned multi-platinum and gold album status all with a long list of best-selling albums (Dawn Patrol, Midnight Madness, 7 Wishes, Big Life and Man In Motion). Their popularity is fueled by an impressive number of instantly recognizable hit singles and signature album tracks, including legendary titles such as “Sister Christian,” “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me,” “When You Close Your Eyes,” the anthemic “(You Can Still) Rock In America,” along with “Sentimental Street,” “Goodbye” and “Sing Me Away.”

The 2022 Stanislaus County Fair opens Friday, July 8 for a 10-day run.
