Never trust a big ass and a smile: Bell Biv DeVoe is coming to the Great New York State Fair.
The new swing jack group will perform on the Chevy Park stage at NYS Fair on Thursday, August 26 at 8 p.m. ET. The concert is free with entry to the fair, which costs $ 3 this year.
BBD, along with R&B singers Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins and Ronnie DeVoe, last performed at the Fair in 2014. The trio are known for their ’90s hits “Poison”, “Word to the Mutha”, “BBD (I Thought It Was Me)?” And “Do me!”
Bivins wore Syracuse University clothes and hats in the clips for “Do Me!” and “Poison”, although it has no connection with SU.
“I was just a 90’s Orangemen fan,” he told syracuse.com | The Post-Standard in 2014. “They were my favorite Big East team. So when I had the opportunity to wear a jersey and a cap, it was the team of my choice.
This year’s “New York State Fair reinvented” runs August 20 through September 6, with four outdoor spaces across the fairgrounds, including food and drink; rides and games on the Midway; farm animals exhibited in the farm row; and concerts on the Chevy Park Stage (formerly the New York Experience Stage) at the New York Experience Festival grounds.
Participation will be limited due to Covid-19, and spectators will need a ticket to enter the concert area, in addition to the $ 3 entry ticket to the Fair. Tickets for the concert hall will be free and available until the attendance limit is reached.
More than 50 nationally touring shows will be presented at the Chevrolet Music Festival at NYS Fair, the largest free music festival of any state fair in America. More than 20 shows have been confirmed so far, with more announcements expected in the coming weeks.
