Eh... the shows at the fair this year aren't going to be great.. But.. should still be a good time :-D
I have a meeting tonight at 6:30 to be an usher at all the shows... I'll be working on the floor.. so.. some of these are going to be interesting.... (I'll bold my comments from the ushers standboint)

Aug. 21 - Def Leppard friggin drunk ass freaks all over... I'll get to throw some people out of this one for not listening to me WHOO HOO!!
Aug. 22 - Bob Dylan sheesh.. I thought he was dead... Expecting an older crowd... not many problems...
Aug. 23 - Boston I can't even name one song they sing... so it'll be an interesting night
Aug. 24 - Alan Jackson with Joe Nicols YEAH BABY!!! GIRLS IN COWBOY HATS!! sorry, but they DO look sexy... and the girls who turn out for country are the best looking.... Not to mention the fact that the concert alone is going to kick ass... the floor will be crowded that night.. and I'll enjoy the show while working the asles
Aug. 25 - Meatloaf with Cyndi Lauper Have NO clue what type of crowd THAT one will attract...
Aug. 26 - Crosby, Stills, and Nash I got the feeling these people will mostly be drunk and not listen...
Aug. 27 - Goo Goo Dolls with Sugar Ray Ahhhh, had to get that young person show in... Expect to ruin a couple kids nights by throwing them out after telling them not to stand on the chairs 5 times
Aug. 28 - REO Speedwagon with STYX From what I hear.. it's gonna be a fairly tough crowd
Aug. 29 - Brooks and Dunn with Rascal Flats YEAH BABY!!!! MORE COWBOY HATS!! not to mention the fact that brooks and Dunn put on a KICK ASS show.. from the hot air balloon to all the other props... Definatelly will be the best concert yet again this year.
Aug. 30 - Vince Gill with Brad Paisley Cowboy hats 2 days in a row.. What more can a guy ask for!!.. I expect this show to be great also... I have yet to see a country act come through the grandstand that didn't have alot of audience participation, props, and they also draw the biggest crowds
Aug. 31 - Steely Dan I don't even know who he is... But must be good to be the headliner of all the grandstand acts... *shrugs* will I even know any songs?.. Have NO CLUE what kind of crowd... But I'll know they paid $40 a ticket to be on the floor... so they better listen.. I like reminding them how much they paid as the troopers escort them out... Hey... Word to the wise... If you go to a concert and an usher or security tells you not to do something.. Don't be a dumb ass and do it again.. if you do, don't complain when you find yourself listening to the concert from outside the venue..

So.. yeah... thats it!!
as far as best show goes.. I'm going to go with Brooks and Dunn.. last year they didn't get it from me though.. Toby Keith had the best show last year with Alicia Keys coming in a close second...

(oh yeah... and I LOVE this song)

I get paid and get to be an asshole to people

sample conversation:

lady: Could you please tell those people to sit down?
me: nope
lady: what do you mean, I paid good money for this.
me: and I don't have the time to tell the TEN rows in front of you to sit down.
lady: but thats your job.
me: nope it's not, but you are more than welcome to tell people that paid just as much as you did for your seat how to enjoy the show.
lady: humpf
me: (with a smile) enjoy the show, ma'am.. then just loud enough for her to hear as I am walking away "or looking at the guy in front of you's ass..."
