SIOUX FALLS, S.D., Nov. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at a news conference held at the Brennan Rock & Roll Academy in Sioux Falls, Badlands Entertainment Group CEO Chuck Brennan announced the first five months of concerts to be held at Badlands Pawn, Gold & Jewelry. The 70,000-square foot entertainment venue includes a concert space that seats more than 1,600 and a Box Office that sells tickets in person and on-line for concerts and events throughout the country.
The concert venue is located inside Badlands Pawn, Gold & Jewelry, scheduled to open at 9 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day, November 26th. Hairball will be first to grace the 800 square foot stage two days later on November 28th. This concert sold out soon after it was announced.
"I started my entertainment career managing bands at 18 years old and have been fortunate enough to see hundreds of concert venues in my lifetime," said Brennan. "I can honestly say I have never seen a concert hall this amazing anywhere, ever. I am so proud to bring this to my hometown of Sioux Falls, South Dakota."
Brennan, a businessman and philanthropist, opened the non-profit Brennan Rock & Roll Academy in Sioux Falls in 2013. The Academy provides free music lessons to hundreds of Boys & Girls Club members every week. The children also enjoy visits from Brennan's famous rock & roll friends including Alice Cooper, KISS, Slash, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many more.
"Badlands will give music fans the opportunity to see some of the greatest bands and performers of all time, right here in Sioux Falls," said Brennan. "The best bands, the best sound, the best light show and an unbelievable concert experience is what we are aiming for every Thursday!"
