On stage this week at the County Fair

7:30 p.m. July 3: Boston

Boston will be bringing two new recruits on tour this year. Veteran Stryper frontman Michael Sweet will both sing and trade riffs with Gary Pihl and Tom Scholz on guitar. Unexpected phenomenon Tommy DeCarlo, the fan who posted his Boston covers on his myspace.com page and ended up on stage, also will belt out the classics that skyrocketed the band to worldwide fame.

Dinner package: $157, all ages. Price includes floor seating in front of the stage, Fair admission, parking, and dinner, but does not include Ticketmaster fees.

Concert with Fair admission, all ages: Floor reserved seats are $91. Terrace, second- and fourth-level reserved seats are $50. General admission (unreserved seats on the third and fifth levels) are $25. Prices do not include Ticketmaster fees.

7:30 p.m. July 4: KC and the Sunshine Band

KC and the Sunshine Band fuses R&B and funk, mixed with a hint of Latin percussion groove, producing songs that are bound to get the crowd dancing. Their first major U.S. hit, in the early ‘70s, called audiences to “Get Down Tonight” and paved the way for future number-one hits, including “Shake Your Booty” and “That’s the Way (I Like It). “Please Don’t Go” was actually the first number-one hit of the 1980s.

It’s all free with Fair admission for unreserved seats on the third and fifth levels, and for the standing area in front of the stage.

A limited number of reserved seats are available. Prices for terrace seating are $31 for those 13-61; $26 for ages 62 and older and ages 6-12. Second- and fourth-level reserved seats are $25 for ages 13-61; $20 for ages 62 and older and ages 6-12.

7:30 p.m. July 5: Joan Osborne

Combining country, folk and blues influences, Joan Osborne has written and sung thought-provoking songs since her rise to fame with her megahit, “One of Us.” “Right Hand Man,” “St. Teresa” and “After Jane” are also songs that increased her fan base, as did her appearance at Lilith Fair, a tour of female singer-songwriters.

Please note that this concert will take place on the Chevrolet Paddock Stage.

7:30 p.m. July 6: WAR

From the late ‘60s to present day, Los Angeles-based WAR played the music that made people dance and think. Fusing rock, Latin rhythms, funk, blues, jazz and soul into a distinctive sound all their own, WAR was a righteous force of its era. Although WAR’s lyrics were sometimes political in nature, their music almost always had a sunny, laid-back vibe emblematic of their Southern California roots.

Please note that this concert will take place on the Chevrolet Paddock Stage.

7:30 p.m. July 6: Alacranes Musical

This show is free with Fair admission. A limited number of reserved seats are available for $25, which includes Fair admission.
