Three different rock and metal bands will be headlining the 2019 York Fair in what has been dubbed Triple Play Tuesday.

Tesla, a critically acclaimed rock quintet from Sacramento, will play at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, along with southern metal band Jackyl and Maryland-based KIX.

Tesla has been producing hard rock music for more than 30 years and has sold more than 25 million albums. Last month, the band released a new album titled "Shock."

The group has toured with bands such as Styx and Def Leppard in the past.

Jackyl, which formed in 1991 in Georgia, is a southern heavy metal band and may be best known for "The Lumberjack," which features a chainsaw solo. 

The band touts two Guinness World Records for playing 100 concerts in 50 days and 21 concerts in a 24-hour period, according to the band's website, www.jackyl.com.

KIX, the final band, is a pop metal band that first was known as The Shooze and gained notoriety as a cover band before releasing its self-titled debut album in 1981. In 2014, the band released the album "Rock Your Face Off," the first work the group had put out in two decades.

Tickets are $25 and $35 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, May 3, at yorkfair.com. Those interested also can order tickets by phone at 717-848-2033.
