Wednesday at the Stanislaus County Fair – A big time attendance is expected tonight as Big Time Rush performs on the variety free stage at 8:30pm and a fireworks show has been scheduled for 9:45pm.
“We are thrilled to host this great breakthrough band,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. “Fans of the Nickelodeon show won’t want to miss the chance to see the guys live in this amazing concert.”
Big Time Rush is most known for their hit Nickelodeon show, also named Big Time Rush, which boasts the highest-rated and most-watched live-action premiere in the history of the network, attracting 6.8 million viewers. The band has sold nearly 900,000 combined digital singles to date and has recently unveiled their debut album entitled BTR. Each of the four members is a skilled singer/songwriter/musician and actor in his own right. Big Time Rush is excited to take their music to the stage, not just to perform live before their fans, but to also show them who they are outside of their on-screen personas. The band has released songs such as ‘Til I Forget About You,’ ‘City Is Ours,’ ‘Halfway There,’ ‘Big Night’ and the theme to their show, ‘Big Time Rush.’
