The Minnesota State Fair started teasing 2019's grandstand acts way back in December, and the slow-trickle lineup inched toward completion Monday with two more additions: rapper Logic and classic rockers ZZ Top. 

Logic -- a rare fair booking due to genre (rap) and age (young-ish) -- will hit the grandstand on August 29. The 29-year-old MC from Maryland began his career in the '00s as a teen, but didn't find mainstream acceptance until 2017's anti-suicide smash "1-800-273-8255," which scored two Grammy noms. Last week, the real-life Sir Robert Bryson Hall II debuted "Homicide," an Eminem collab from his forthcoming album Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. Tickets to see Logic ($43-$55) go on sale Friday at noon via the fair box office

Fair veterans ZZ Top require less of an introduction: beards; spinning guitars; "Sharp Dressed Man"; this Simpsons clip. Those very guitars will spin beneath those very beards on September 2 at the fair alongside openers Cheap Trick, giving fairgoers a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twofer. ZZ Top's 15th and latest album, La Futura, dropped seven years ago, so expect 'em to stick to the hits. Tickets ($39-$49) also go on sale Friday at noon via the fair box office
