One of the region's most popular bands is hitting the stage at one of this summer's biggest events.

South Dakota Rock & Rollers Hall of Fame inductees Kory and The Fireflies are opening for The Fray at the Sioux Empire Fair in August.

The show is Saturday, August 3.

The band is celebrating a milestone in 2024 - 30 years of making music and three decades of sharing the stage with the likes of Def Leppard, Sheryl Crow, Neil Young, Dave Matthews, John Mellencamp, Journey, and Cheap Trick, just to name a few.

Along the way, Kory and The Fireflies have released four CDs and a pair of DVDs and had singles like 'Sometimes', 'Virginia', 'Pop Fly', 'Everyone', and 'She's Coming Back Again' play on radio stations across America.
