Sugarland, the hitmaking country duo, has reunited and chosen the Minnesota State Fair grandstand for a concert on Aug. 24 on its comeback tour.
After a 10-year run that included the hits “Baby Girl” and the Grammy-winning “Stay,” the duo split up in 2012. Lead vocalist Jennifer Nettles pursued a solo career that didn’t really take off and Kristian Bush predictably offered his own low-key solo disc.
The duo reunited for a performance on the CMA Awards in November and have released a new single, “Still the Same.” They plan to work on more new music, but no album details have been announced.
Tickets, priced at $57 and $67, will go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 19 etix.com and the State Fair box office until noon that day.
Opening acts will be Frankie Ballard and Lindsay Ell.
