Country music artist Kane Brown will present a drive-in performance at 8 p.m. Sept. 26 at the Alerus Center. Tickets for the show go on sale Thursday, Sept. 10, online at .

Each ticket, $76, admits a vehicle with as many as six occupants.

The Sept. 26 performance was recorded live and professionally edited to provide fans with a high-quality, intimate front-row experience with the chart-topping artist, featuring interviews and behind-the-scenes storytelling, according to event promoters.

Since his debut, Brown has established himself as a top country music artist who has helped shift the perception of the genre, promoters say. He has forged a career as “one of the industry’s biggest country stars, becoming the first artist to top all five Billboard Country Charts simultaneously and topping the all-genre Billboard 200 chart with his album Experiment.”

Brown recently released a seven-song EP called “Mixtape Vol. 2,” which includes collaborations “Be Like That,” with Khalid Robinson and Swae Lee, and “Last Time I Say Sorry,” the song he co-wrote with John Legend.


Brown is the latest musician to join the Encore Drive-In Nights concert series, which kicked off on July 25 with a performance by Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Trace Adkins and was followed by Metallica on Aug. 29.

The success of these shows affirms that “people are really into the drive-in concert experience,” said Walter Kinzie, CEO of Encore Live, in a news release.

Drive-in venues that host the concert across the country adhere to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention public health guidelines as well as all state and local health mandates. Staff members wear personal protective equipment and enforce at least six feet of space between cars and limit capacity in restrooms.

The series also uses no-contact payment and ticketing systems. Guidelines involving the concession stand are enforced to abide by individual state regulations.
