Add another superstar to the Illinois State Fair’s grandstand lineup.

Robin Thicke is set to take the stage on Sunday, August 17th to close it out. Thicke had THE hit of the summer last year with “Blurred Lines” and he’s had a couple of other hits during the same time period.

Tickets go on sale next Friday. The State Fair has snagged a few other big acts, including Pitbull, Florida Georgia Line and Boston.
