Fair Welcomes Smash Mouth To Concert Stage
Mark the calendar; Smash Mouth will be performing on Saturday, July 11 at the Stanislaus County Fair on the Coors Light Variety Free Stage, with the concert free with the price of Fair admission.

Fairgoers will be “Walkin’ on the Sun” as Smash Mouth takes the stage at the Stanislaus County Fair.

Smash Mouth will be performing on Saturday, July 11 at the Stanislaus County Fair and will appear on the Coors Light Variety Free Stage at 8:30 p.m. The concert is hosted by KHOP 95.1 and is free with the price of Fair admission.

“Smash Mouth will leave our ‘All-Star’ Fair guests feeling nostalgic as they re-live iconic songs you still hear in current shows or movies,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair.

2018 turned out to be another stellar year for revered, Multi-Platinum California pop-rockers Smash Mouth. Literally spanning the globe, Smash Mouth was active (and crushing it wherever they went) all 12 months that year. With 151 Million Streams on Spotify, 28 million fans, and 7 million hours of streaming in 65 countries, Smash Mouth remains as hot as ever. They carried this energetic momentum straight into 2019, because for Smash Mouth, 2019 was to be different and special. 2019 was a year-long celebration of a true milestone on the band’s long and venerated journey being that it was the 20-year anniversary of Smash Mouth’s quadruple platinum international tour de force, career-defining, (and now classic) album “Astrolounge.”

Coming hot-on-the heels of their 1997 multi-platinum debut album “Fush Yu Mang”, very little was actually expected of “Astrolounge” prior to its June 1999 release. As Smash Mouth was widely regarded, by press and public alike, the consummate “one-hit-wonder”. “Astrolounge” (with its now-legendary first single “All-Star”, alongside smash hits “Then The Morning Comes” and “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby”) didn’t just extinguish this presumption ... it blew it into the stratosphere. Giving Smash Mouth the two-pronged satisfaction of forever silencing the abundant nay-sayers, while simultaneously carving themselves an international household name; one that remains firmly embedded in the cultural lexicon to this day.

Smash Mouth’s eponymous third Interscope release features the buoyant first single “Pacific Coast Party” and the smash hit “I’m A Believer”. Around this time, the band crossed over into the film world, providing the heart of the movie, Shrek, soundtrack, and even making a cameo appearance in the 2001 comedy “Rat Race”.

The 2020 Stanislaus County Fair opens Friday, July 10 for a 10-day run. Discounted Fair admission tickets, unlimited ride wristbands, and the Fair season pass will be on sale beginning Saturday, April 25, 2020.
