Additional Information

The Sioux Empire Fair is pleased to announce that GODSMACK will be performing at the 74th Annual Sioux Empire Fair on Saturday, August 3 as part of the Grandstand Concert Series.

In February of 1995, after being behind the drums for more than 23 years, Sully Erna decided to start a new band. It was only a matter of time before he realized he needed to take charge and step out from behind the kit to front the band himself. One year and a couple of member changes later Godsmack was born. Sully Erna, Robbie Merrill and Tony Rombola hit the studio and recorded their first CD titled All Wound Up. They did this over one weekend for a measly twenty six-hundred dollars. Over the next two years, the band played throughout the Boston scene with drummer Joe Darco and began earning a strong reputation of being a great live band. The noise they were making in the New England area created a snowball effect like no other.

We are excited to announce that GODSMACK is our Featured Performance and is the only paid Grandstand show. General admission tickets are $35.00 and are on sale now. They can be purchased through, Ernie November 41st location or Fairgrounds Administration office. With the purchase of an advance ticket, you will also get admittance into the Fair.
