Country star Kane Brown has been revealed as the headliner of a massive anniversary concert celebrating the Staples Center in Los Angeles this fall.
Set for October 18, Brown’s show will be the first of a year-long series of events highlighting the arena’s 20th anniversary.
“Staples Center is an incredibly diverse and iconic venue and it is an honor to headline and be a part of their 20th anniversary kick off celebration,” Brown says. “From the Lakers, Clippers, Kings and Sparks, to all the artists that have graced the stage there, they bring the best in entertainment to Los Angeles and I cannot wait to celebrate the last 20 years and kick-off the next 20.”
The arena — which is now home to sports teams like the Los Angles Lakers, Clippers, Kings and Sparks, as well as events like the annual Grammy Awards — first opened its doors on October 17, 1999, when Brown was barely in grade school.
“We are thrilled to have Kane Brown headline Staples Center as part of our 20th anniversary celebration,“ says Lee Zeidman, President of Staples Center, Microsoft Theater and L.A. Live. “It is pretty remarkable to think that Kane was just shy of turning six years old when we opened our doors in 1999 and now he will be a huge part of us ushering in the next generation of extraordinary talent to headline our arena.”
Tickets for the show go on-sale July 26 at 10 a.m. (PST) at AXS.com, starting at just $20. Exclusive pre-sales will also be available through Staples Center, Go Country 105 and Brown’s Fan Club.
In other news, Brown’s new track “Like a Rodeo” comes out Friday following intense fan interest after the star shared a demo version on social media.
