Country music star Luke Bryan performs at hospital
Country music headliner Luke Bryan will be performing in Fresno this summer, according to his website.
Bryan announced his “official Sunset Repeat Tour” in a tweet and his website lists a Fresno concert on Aug. 22 at the Save Mart Center.
The Fresno performance currently is scheduled as the 30th of 38th shows on the tour.
The Save Mart Center has now confirmed the announcement. Tickets $30.75-$96.75 and available 10 a.m. March 1 at the box office, online at www.ticketmaster.com or by phone at 800-745-3000. All Acess and VIP presales are available starting 8 a.m. Tuesday.
Prior to the announcement from the arena, last week, there was no listing for a Luke Bryan concert on the Save Mart Center’s website, leading to some speculation as to whether Bryan’s Fresno performance had actually been booked, officially.
During the fall of 2017, country singer Thomas Rhett announced on his website he was coming to Fresno for a show at the Save Mart Center. Several third-part ticket brokers even claimed to have tickets.
But a few months later, officials the Save Mart Center, the supposed venue for Rhett’s showing, said the show never had been scheduled.
Bryan, does have a much bigger following than Rhett with almost 10 million followers just on Twitter and sold out at the Save Mart Center during his previous Fresno showing.
His song “Huntin’, Fishin’, and Lovin’ Every Day” alone has been viewed almost 153 million times on YouTube. The video was nominated for Male Video of the Year during the 2017 CMT Music Awards.
In Bryan’s tweet, he also said he’ll be touring with singers Cole Swindell, Jon Langston and DJ Rock.
Bryan last performed in Fresno in 2016. He needed just two minutes to do his signature hip thrust.
