The Alerus Center has announced that country star Morgan Wallen is stopping in Grand Forks for “The Dangerous Tour” on March 12.

Special guests HARDY and Larry Fleet will also make appearances, and tickets will go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 19.

The concert comes after Luke Combs and Eric Church headlined concerts at the Alerus Center in late 2021 -- the former breaking concert attendance records for the venue.

Morgan Wallen is another big get and has made a career for himself with multi-platinum certifications, more than 4 billion on-demand streams and 23 Billboard Hot 100 songs. His most recent album Dangerous: The Double Album debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 albums chart and recorded the biggest streaming week for a country album in history.

However, Wallen has not been able to avoid controversy in recent years. In 2020, he was arrested outside a bar owned by Kid Rock in downtown Nashville for public intoxication and disorderly conduct. Wallen also received backlash on social media after TikTok videos went viral of him partying maskless at a bar in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, maskless, violating social distancing guidelines only a week before his scheduled debut on Saturday Night Live, which was then postponed.

Notoriously, Wallen was also in the public limelight for the wrong reasons again on Feb. 2, 2021, when a TMZ video of him using a racial slur in conversation with his friends just outside his home in Nashville went viral. Wallen issued an apology, but SiriusXM Satellite Radio, iHeartRadio and others stopped his songs from being played their their stations. Wallen's songs were also removed from Apple Music, Spotify and Pandora featured playlists.
