Bozeman’s next big blowout music event is scheduled to pack Montana State University’s Brick Breeden Fieldhouse for a back-to-back show held on April 22 and 23. Country music star Luke Bryan will be playing as part of his ‘Kill the Lights’ tour, according to the Montana State University website. Special guests Little Big Town and Dustin Lynch will be accompanying Bryan at the show as the opening acts.
According to the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse website, Luke Bryan is a huge sensation amongst country music fans, producing 12 Billboard chart topping singles since his debut album in 2007 and selling “nearly 7 million albums with 27 million digital tracks from his four studio albums.” This tour is a build up for the release of Bryan’s new album, “Kill the Lights” which is set to be released on August 7.
Many local country music fans have expressed interest in the concert. One MSU junior, Alex Von Wald, seemed to be thrilled about the upcoming event.
“It will be the biggest country concert since Jason Aldean last summer, which was a pretty incredible show,” Von Wald said.
Ticket prices range from approximately $40, all the way to a staggering $533. Despite this, Brick Breeden has had no trouble in the past selling out artists with as big of a following as Luke Bryan has. Tickets are on sale now, and are available for purchase at the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse office, the Strand Union Building, or at Rosauers Supermarket.
The Brick Breeden Fieldhouse hosts a wide variety of musical acts; Def Leppard and Styx played there earlier this summer, and the venue has performances planned from The Blue Man Group, Brantley Gilbert, and Keith Urban over the next few months.
