July 20, 2013 is going to be one of (if not THE) busiest days for entertainment Sioux Falls, SD has ever seen. As is the case most years, Sioux Falls JazzFest will take place in Yankton Trail Park the third weekend of July (last year it was moved back a week to accommodate the Blues Angels and the Sioux Falls Air Show) Headlining the festival that night will be Sheryl Crow. Other bands scheduled to appear that day include: Doyle Bramhall II, Beau Soleil, Mingo Fishtrap and Kris Lager Band.
A few months ago, Grand Falls Casino in Larchwood, IA announced plans for their summer outdoor concert series that includes classic rockers REO Speedwagon playing an outdoor show Saturday evening, July 20. Then in April, it was announced that country music superstar Tim McGraw with special guest Brantley Gilbert, would play an outdoor show at the Sioux Empire Fairgrounds Saturday night July 20.
So now there are three distinct music genres available in three different outdoor venues (not to mention all the local bars that will also have live music that night). Instead of being happy that there are so many choices, or proud that a city the size of Sioux Falls could be fortunate enough to host such great entertainment, many people decided to COMPLAIN!?!
