“It also represents a return to concerts in the arena. This is the first music concert we have scheduled since the pandemic. »

“It fits with Dustin Lynch’s party mode tour, and it’s totally in line with what his music is about: partying, having a good time with friends and enjoying life. It’s also a great way to celebrate the return of concerts at the 1st Summit Arena.
