GRAMMY Award-Winning Hitmaker, NE-YO, Performing at the Northwest Washington Fair

Las Vegas native, NE-YO, is an acclaimed hitmaker and has proven to be as powerful with his pen as he is in the recording studio and on stage. We are thrilled to welcome him to the 2023 lineup at the Northwest Washington Fair in Lynden, where he will be performing on Friday, August 18 at 7pm as part of the Bank of the Pacific Grandstand Entertainment Series.

Selling 20+ million albums worldwide, winning three GRAMMY awards, penning hits for Rhianna, Beyonce, Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Carrie Underwood, Celine Dion and others, NE-YO has certainly made his mark. His first single in 2005 “So Sick”, hit No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 and was certified-quadruple. Since then, he has racked up a collection of iconic singles including “Closer,” “Because of You,” “Miss Independent” and “Push Back.” Most recently, he released his latest studio album, Self Explanatory, which includes collaborations with Yung Bleu, Jeremih, Trippie Redd and Zae France.

Tickets for the 7 p.m. grandstand show go on sale to the public at 9 a.m. on May 5. Grandstand reserved seats, preferred seats, and preferred chairs are available. Tickets do not include gate admission, which is required. The show is presented by Rhema Electric.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
