A major concert announcement today -- country start Jason Aldean will make a stop in Sioux Falls on his 'Burn It Down' tour.
Along with the announcement comes speculation that Aldean could be one of the first acts at the Denny Sanford Premiere Center.
With all of Sioux Falls' new venues, folks in the music scene say our city can accommodate any size concert.
Opening just a few months ago, The District has already held sold out concerts. According to The District Management, there's no better time to be part of the music scene in Sioux Falls.
"It's a sign the market's obviously growing and the city's growing and we're actually being considered for a lot more bigger events, music and non-music events," said Jered Johnson, The District.
Johnson says the opening of all these new venues in Sioux Falls only helps one another out -- a win-win for all.
"It would be oversaturated if everyone wanted to build an arena or a new convention center. What the market has right now with the Pentagon kind of filling that void of the 3,000 capacity half-house arena. Obviously the new events center is huge; we don't have anything like that in the market. So I think what you're seeing is things that were void before, now filling that and I think that's why we're seeing a lot more success at getting more events," said Johnson, The District.
The District says large or small, Sioux Falls has a venue that will fit every type of act -- musical or not.
"We're not going to see 12, 13,000 people. We're a more intimate setting. There are certain acts that won't play a room this size but need to play something bigger. There's also a lot of groups that come around that Jered books that look for a more intimate setting," said Scott Wick, The District.
Amid the excitement of new venues bringing more national acts to Sioux Falls, there is a bit of unfortunate news -- one mid-size venue about to close its doors. Boonies Bar on West Ave. will hold its final concert Feb. 1.
