After canceling his last massive sold-out show, singer to return, Boise — for a ‘monster’

Concert cancellations are never fun, but last summer was an extra-giant Boise bummer for Luke Bryan fans.

After selling out his August show at the Ford Idaho Center Amphitheater in advance — over 10,000 tickets — the country star was forced to pull out the day before. Bryan nixed a handful of shows because of an illness that affected his voice.

But good news: He’s on his way again.

Bryan will headline the Idaho Center Amphitheater in Nampa on Friday, Aug. 2, with guests Larry Fleet, Huntergirl and Alana Springsteen.

“This will be another monster,” says Creston Thornton, president of promoter Live Nation’s mountain region.

Bryan also has been booked to perform Thursday, Aug. 1, at Hero Arena in Idaho Falls, inside the Mountain America Center.

A judge on TV’s “American Idol,” Bryan has sold millions of albums worldwide. Fan favorites include songs such as “Drunk on You,” “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day” and “Crash My Party.”

Tickets to the Idaho Center show go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Feb. 9 through fordidahocenter.com. Prices range from $39.75 to $199.75. Presales start Feb. 6.

Bryan is the 10th amphitheater show already announced for next summer by promoter Live Nation. Three have sold out: Lainey Wilson, Tyler Childers and Hozier, Thornton said.
