The Stanislaus County Fair has added rock band Loverboy and Disney star Zendaya to perform at this year’s fair.

Loverboy will perform on the Bud Light Variety Free Stage at 8:30 p.m. July 17, while Zendaya will take the stage on July 16. The concerts are free with fair admission.

“Loverboy is a strong addition to this year’s concert series,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. “Their energetic 80s hits will bring nostalgia to our concert line up.”

Loverboy has sold more than 10 million albums, earning four multi-platinum plaques, including the four-million-selling “Get Lucky,” and a trio of double-platinum releases in their self-titled 1980 debut, 1983’s “Keep It Up” and 1985’s “Lovin’ Every Minute of It.” Their string of hits includes, in addition to the anthem “Working for the Weekend,” such arena rock staples as “Lovin’ Every Minute of It,” “This Could Be the Night,” “Hot Girls in Love,” “Heaven In Your Eyes,” “Turn Me Loose,” “When It’s Over,” “Heaven In Your Eyes” and “Queen of the Broken Hearts.”

Zendaya is currently on the show “Shake it Up” as the character Rocky Blue. Recently, Disney announced that she will star and co-produce in a Disney channel spy pilot. In addition, she will also star in the Disney Channel Original Movie, “Zapped.” She also recently released her self-titled 2013 debut full-length album.

“Zendaya is a well-known Disney star with an incredible voice,” said Alkhas. “She has made a name for herself in the music and television industry and her performance will be a success with our younger demographic.”

The fair’s entertainment line-up for this year includes Wynonna and the Big Noise, Kansas, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, and Rodney Atkins.

The 2014 Stanislaus County Fair opens July 11 for a 10-day run.
