HUTCHINSON — Two-time Grammy Award winner and multi-platinum
recording artist Lauren Daigle will have a live drive-up concert event at the
Kansas State Fairgrounds.
Daigle’s concert is at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25 in the parking
lot east of the Fairgrounds off Plum Street. It is one of two “Autumn Nights”
performances. The other event takes place at Rogersville, Missouri.
The drive-up concert series is being presented by a third-party
promoter who is renting the lot. “Autumn Nights” will adhere to CDC
recommendations and both local and state health and safety regulations and
guidelines. The Fair is working with the Reno County Health Department
officials who approved the event.
Attendees will be allowed to book their own oversized parking
space when tickets go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 3. To secure tickets early, fans can
participate in a Spotify Fans First pre-sale at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
Tickets can be purchased at www.LaurenDaigle.com/autumnnights.
“In a year where so many events have canceled, along with the
Kansas State Fair, we are thrilled to be afforded the opportunity to have such
a tremendous talent like Lauren,” said Nathan McClanahan, the Fair’s facility
rental coordinator. “She reaches across many platforms of music. We are looking
forward to having Lauren grace us live on Friday, Sept. 25.
“Autumn Nights” will showcase Daigle’s lively spirit and raw vocal
power in an outdoor festival setting. She will feature some of her biggest
hits, including her platinum single “Rescue” and the triple-platinum-selling
and Grammy Award-winning No. 1 single “You Say.” She will also perform tracks
from her previous platinum-selling album, How Can It Be. Scott Mulvahill
will be Daigle’s special guest for both of the socially distanced events.
“I cannot wait to get back on the stage,” said Daigle. “I’ve
missed seeing everyone, sharing the music and having fun! Playing a drive-up is
definitely going to be different, but I’m excited to keep the music flowing.
It’s going to be beautiful.”
Besides Grammy Awards, Daigle is a five-time Billboard Music Award
winner and a three-time American Music Award winner. Her ability to connect
with her audience has captured critical acclaim and recognition as the
fastest-selling new artist for her genre of the last decade.
The crossover hit, “You Say,” has become the longest-running No. 1
song on the weekly Hot Christian Songs Chart at 100 weeks. The smash also spent
multiple weeks at No. 1 on the Adult Contemporary Chart, appearing in the Top
20 on Billboard’s Top 40 chart and Top 5 on the Hot AC Chart. Her follow-up
single, “Rescue,” has recently been certified platinum. Daigle’s Grammy
Award-winning album, Look Up Child, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard
200 Albums chart and has been certified platinum.
