As part of the 2017 Central Carolina Fair Concert Series, 100.3 KISS FM presents the “Back to School Jam” featuring AJR, with special guest Jorge Blanco, in concert on Saturday, September 9 at 5 p.m.
The concert will take place at The Fieldhouse at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex and is FREE with paid Fair admission ($8 for adults).
There is no band, no song, no video, no sound that is more “now” than AJR. The band — three brothers born and raised in New York City — has achieved a startling quick level of success with “I’m Ready,” a buoyant electro-pop single that’s taking off on social media. The numbers: over 10 Million views on YouTube, Gold record in the USA and Double Platinum Internationally, features in Billboard, the New York Post, and on MTV. They have also performed on the Today show, X-Factor, Live! with Kelly and Michael and numerous other national television shows.
Jorge Blanco has performed live across Europe and Latin America and it’s clear the Mexican-born singer is one of the great talents of his generation. With the release of Jorge’s debut Hollywood Records single, “Summer Soul,” it’s now America’s turn to swoon. Jorge starred in the worldwide hit series from Disney Latin America, “Violetta” and the show was dubbed into several languages and broadcast around the world for three seasons.
The 119th annual Central Carolina Fair will return to the Greensboro Coliseum Complex on Friday, September 8 and run through Sunday, September 17. The Fair will feature spectacular rides, carnival food and games, musical entertainment and attractions for all ages.
Advance tickets for the Fair are on sale now at www.ticketmaster.com and the Greensboro Coliseum box office. A special $6 advance ticket offer, available until 4 p.m. on Friday, September 8, includes one Fair admission for any single day of the Fair.
