Lifehouse, an American rock band unlike any other, will be coming to the Stanislaus County Fair this summer.

Lifehouse will perform on Wednesday, July 18 on theBud Light Variety Free Stage at 8:30 p.m. The concert is free with the price of Fair admission.

"Lead vocalist Jason Wade has such a unique, low-sounding voice that is easy to get lost in," said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. "Those who listened to them in the early 2000s are definitely in for a nostalgic treat."

With songs in the top 10 of Billboard's Hot 100, Alternative, Adult Top 40, Mainstream Top 40, Adult Contemporary and Adult Pop charts, Lifehouse has proven their versatility and longevity. It was in 2001 when the Los Angeles-based band first broke through in a big way when "Hanging by a Moment," from No Name Face, spent 20 weeks in Billboard's top 10, and won a Billboard Music Award for "Hot 100 Single of the Year." Since then, the band has released six more albums, three of which also made Billboard's top 10, sold over 15 million records worldwide and spun off such hit singles as "You and Me," "First Time," "Whatever it Takes," "Broken," "Halfway Gone," "Between the Raindrops" and "Hurricane."

Lifehouse has also played to sold-out shows around the globe throughout their 17-year career. Having toured the world extensively, they have amassed a fiercely loyal fanbase in the States, Europe, Australia, South East Asia and South America.

The 2018 Stanislaus County Fair opens Friday, July 13 for a 10-day run.

Discounted admission tickets, unlimited ride wristbands, and the season pass will be on sale beginning Saturday, April 28. Corporate ticket sales will also be available to purchase at a highly discounted rate. Visit the Fair's website for upcoming ticket sale information at
