Friday headliner announced for Washington Co. Fair | By Kellie Boone

April 10, 2023 – Washington Co., WI – Kellie Boone, Executive Director of Washington County Fair Park & Conference Center, announces the Friday headliner for the Washington County Fair will be Chevelle on Friday, July 28, 2023.

An opening act will be announced at a later date. “We are excited to have Chevelle performing at the Silver Lining Amphitheater during the 165th annual Washington County Fair,” said Boone.

After more than two decades together, numerous top-charting releases, and countless worldwide tours, CHEVELLE—the outfit consisting of brothers Pete Loeffler [guitars, vocals], and Sam Loeffler [drums]—have confidently sailed through decades of uncharted waters and have emerged with a sound that is equally intricate as it is intimate.

To-date, Chevelle has achieved Multi-Platinum, Platinum and Gold certifications across 8 studio albums and 7 number one hits, with 17 songs reaching the Top 10 on the Rock charts.

 

The band has sold over 5 million albums in the US, and more world-wide. Their extensive body of acclaimed work includes the 2002 Multi-Platinum selling genre staple “Wonder What’s Next” and the 2004 Platinum selling follow-up “This Type of Thinking Could Do Us In,” which debuted No. 8 on the Billboard Top 200.

The releases that followed held their own against the ever changing faces of popular music: 2007’s Gold record selling Vena Sera reached No. 2 on the Billboard Rock Albums Chart while 2009’s Sci-Fi Crimes debuted No. 6 on the Billboard Top 200 and No. 1 on the Alternative Chart. 2011’s Hats Off to The Bull (No. 5 on Billboard Top 200), 2014’s La Gargola (No. 3), and 2016’s The North Corridor (No. 8, No. 1 Rock) built upon the success. In 2018, Chevelle released a B-sides and rarities collection entitled 12 Bloody Spies while they wrote and recorded the new album, Niratias.
