The Iowa State Fair is known to be the best fair experience you can get, from the rides to the grandstand, which is lining up to be absolutely stacked this year - with one of rock's biggest names just announced to be joining the lineup.

Motley Crue got their start on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles in the early 1980s, immediately gaining notoriety for their wild behavior both on and off stage.

In 2023, founding guitarist Mick Mars announced his departure from the group due to health concerns around touring, and was replaced by John 5 - formerly of Rob Zombie, David Lee Roth's Band, Marilyn Manson, and many more.
