Theory of a Deadman, Pop Evil Announced for 2018 Jackson County Fair

Rock night at the 2018 Jackson County Fair will feature Theory of a Deadman and Pop Evil

The Jackson Country Fair will reach mid-Michigan in early August, and the festival will offer something for the rock music fan. Theory of a Deadman and Pop Evil have both been confirmed to perform at the annual event on on Tuesday, Aug. 7. This follows a tradition of the festival booking at least one night of rock music, with previous years featuring bands such as Five Finger Death Punch, Stone Sour, Alter Bridge and Skillet.

Theory of a Deadman is a regular on rock radio. The Canadian band has topped the mainstream rock charts for more than a decade with No. 1 hits such as “So Happy” “Bad Girlfriend,” “Lowlife” and “Angel.” The band released a new studio album last year, “Wake Up Call,” and snagged yet another No. 1 rock hit in the melodic “RX (medicate).”

Pop Evil is an apt fit for the Jackson, Michigan, festival, since the guys are out of North Muskegon in Michigan. As with Theory of a Deadman, the Pop Evil crew has achieved rock radio success with anthemic rock tunes such as “Hero,” “Torn to Pieces,” “Monster You Made” and “Somebody Like You.” The band’s new, self-titled studio album arrived earlier this year and features the inspirational hard rock single “Waking Lions.”

Theory of a Deadman and Pop Evil join the Jackson County Fair’s previously-announced 2018 music lineup, which includes county acts John Anderson, Pam Tillis and Little Texas on Sunday, Aug. 5, and 2017 “America’s Got Talent” winner Darci Lynne Farmer on Monday, Aug. 6.

Regular shows Twisted P Rodeo and USA Demolition Derby are scheduled to take place on Friday, Aug. 10 and Saturday, Aug. 11, respectively. For information on the Jackson County Fair and to view the full schedule, head to
