Sioux Falls concert announces new venue and opening acts

If you’re planning on attending the Sam Hunt concert on Thursday, September 15 (tonight), there have been significant changes to the event.

Great Shots will no longer be the venue for the evening due to impending bad weather. The concert celebrating the Sanford International will now take place at the Sanford Pentagon. Oh… and Mitchell Tenpenny will no longer be the opening act.

Sanford International officials issued this breaking update early Thursday morning. They also posted a message on his Facebook page about the new changes.

So why isn’t Mitchell Tenpenny performing tonight? Officials say Mitchell is unfortunately ‘unable to play due to illness’.

Here is Sanford International’s new official recap for tonight’s events, along with any questions ticket holders may have:

See some of the beautiful murals in Sioux Falls [PHOTOS]

I was in Canton, SD, and came across a new mural.
It was really cool and made me think I knew a few murals in Sioux Falls, but I bet there are more than I realize. So, I put it on social media for the people of Sioux Falls to tell me where all the murals are!

A few of them I’ve never seen or even been to in this part of town, and a few of them I drive by all the time and never noticed!

I know a few companies have murals inside their establishments, but I’ve decided to stick with murals that are totally open to the public. You don’t have to be 21!

So let’s go ! Let’s see some of the murals in Sioux Falls.

Did I miss one? Let me know!
