Homemakers Furniture Grandstand Concert Series - Kum & Go Stage

With only a few more nights to announce, the Iowa State Fair has added The Black Keys and Jeff Dunham to the 2023 lineup.

The Black Keys have eleven albums and decades of hard touring. The two-man band have been friends since childhood but came together as a band in 2001. In 2020 during COVID, they released Delta Kream, their 10th album, a salute to their blues, rock and country influences. The Black Keys Dropout Boogie Tour, Monday, August 14, 2023, will mark the first time the band has played at the Iowa State Fair.

Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham has sold out concert tours, ratings shattering broadcast specials, not to mention bestselling author status, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a few Guinness Book of World Records just for good measure. Named Billboard's Top Comedy Tour for three consecutive years, Jeff Dunham brings "a dressed-down, more digestible version of Don Rickles with multiple personality disorder" according to TIME, on his Jeff Dunham: Still Not Canceled tour coming to the Iowa State Fair Grandstand on Tuesday, August 15, 2023.
