Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit at the Illinois State Fair Grandstand

Sun, Aug 11 , 2024 • 8:00pm - 11:00pm

801 East Sangamon Avenue, Springfield, IL 62702

Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit take the stage at the Illinois State Fair Grandstand August 11th.

A Jason Isbell record always lands like a decoder ring in the ears and hearts of his audience, a soundtrack to his world and magically to theirs, too. This is a storyteller at the peak of his craft, observing his fellow wanderers, looking inside and trying to understand, reducing a universe to four minutes. He shrinks life small enough to name the fear and then strip it away, helping his listeners make sense of how two plus two stops equaling four once you reach a certain age -- and carry a certain amount of scars.

Opening for Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit is Ashley McBryde.
