BLACKFOOT — Local David Archuleta fans are getting an early Christmas gift this year—the popular singer will be making a stop at the Blackfoot Performing Arts Center Dec. 9 as part of his much-anticipated "My Kind of Christmas Tour."
Tickets go on sale Saturday and are $27.50 plus a $3.50 service fee. Tickets will be on sale at the BPAC from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday. Tickets can also be purchased beginning at 10 a.m. by calling 317-5508 or online at www.blackfootpac.com . All seats are reserved.
Tickets can be mailed out or picked up at the Blackfoot Performing Arts Center box office the night of the concert. The show will begin at 8 p.m. and doors to the theater will open at 7 p.m.
Susan Mann, BPAC programming director, said David Archuleta is a huge get for Blackfoot and tickets will likely sell out quickly.
Archuleta's show will feature epic orchestral arrangements of both traditional holiday and familiar classics, as well as an assortment of his own, melodic pop favorites. The tour promises to showcase more of his unique musicality and vocal prowess that his fans have come to love.
