A rock band best known for a hit anthem about Superman's physical weakness will perform at the Toyota Grandstand at the York Fair on Sept. 16.

Tickets for 3 Doors Down, which rose to fame in 2000 with hits such as "Kryptonite" and "Loser," go on sale Saturday.

Fair general manager Mike Froehlich said the hard rock band was signed because it's "current" and popular, and nicely compliments the rest of the entertainment lineup for the fair.

He said fair organizers are trying to provide a wide range of entertainment that appeals to everyone. The fair has also signed country music star Toby Keith for the country crowd and pop group Bigtime Rush for the younger crowd, he said. The grandstand will also feature TNA Wrestling and harness racing, he said.

3 Doors Down was formed in Escatawpa, Miss. The band's self-titled fourth album was released in 2008 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The next album, "Time of My Life," is set to be released on July 19.

Tickets for the 7:30 p.m., Sept. 16 performance go on sale Saturday, April 23, at 9 a.m. at the York Fair Box Office at 334 Carlisle Ave., by phone at 848-2033, and online at www.yorkfair.com.

Tickets cost $40 for track plaza and center grandstand and $35 for side track, side plaza and side grandstand. There is a processing fee for phone, mail and Internet orders.
