Concerts are a great way to get out, let loose and create memories that last a lifetime. Whether you enjoy screaming at the top of your lungs or dancing to your favorite country, pop or rap songs, pick a date and secure a spot at a concert nearby. 

Brady Woods, ‘21, says he recently went to the Luke Combs concert on Oct. 5, 2019. Woods and his friends hopped into a car and drove to downtown Des Moines, Iowa, to listen to the country singer at the Wells Fargo Arena. 

“The most exciting part of the concert was how close we were to the stage and the fact that it was my very first concert!” said Woods. He plans on going to more concerts with friends and recommends buying a ticket to see Luke Combs.

Kelsey Cook, ‘20, has been raving about Dan and Shay’s future concert on July 23rd, 2020, at the Great Jones County Fair, in Monticello, Iowa. Cook is looking forward to attending this event with friends for her eighteenth birthday.

“I bought my ticket the exact day they were released and have been planning this for months because Dan and Shay is my favorite country band,” said Cook. 

Join these two and many other Wahlert students in attending a midwest concert in the upcoming months!
