After a summer tour with Kesha, Macklemore is set to return to his home state for a Washington State Fair concert.

Even if pop-country isn’t your thing, the Washington State Fair’s concert series just might have something for you. On Monday, the stick food purveyors announced that Macklemore has been added to this year’s lineup of grandstand acts.

Seattle’s radio-friendly rap king wheelbarrows down to Puyallup (or maybe he’ll Uber?) for a Sept. 21 concert. For first crack at tickets, sign up for the fair’s email newsletter and select “concerts” to get access to a presale beginning 10 a.m. Wednesday. Fans with tidier inboxes will have to wait until they go on sale to the general public 10 a.m. Saturday. Reserved seating tickets run $85-$110 and include admission to the state fair. For what it’s worth, there’s also a $43 pre-show party that absolutely does not get you into the show or the fair, but includes access to a taco bar, a VIP laminate pass and a chance for a seat upgrade.

Macklemore is one of the handful of non-country acts gracing the grandstand this year, sliding in among aggressively fashionable pop-country duo Florida Georgia Line, Toby Keith and Rascal Flatts.

The hitmaking emcee’s last hometown show came in December, when Mack capped a run of U.S. dates supporting his “Gemini” LP with a crowd-riling, two-night affair at KeyArena. This month he crosses the pond for a European trek with local rising star Dave B opening, before returning to Seattle for a May 10 benefit gig with Russell Wilson and Ciara, and the Seattle Symphony.
