Denny Sanford PREMIER Center Featured on “American Idol”


Sioux Falls’ very own Denny Sanford PREMIER Center was featured on last night’s episode of “American Idol.”

Zach Johnson, a student from Fargo, North Dakota, auditioned for the judges and mentioned to Keith Urban that he would like to see his concert in Sioux Falls. Keith promised to get Zach into the concert and perform with him during the concert. Keith kept his word, and Zach is seen later in the show performing with Keith Urban on stage at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center. Keith Urban’s concerts took place on October 24 and 25, 2014.

“What an honor for our city and the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center to be featured in primetime on such a popular show,” says Mayor Mike Huether. “I had relatives from all over the country contact me after seeing it on TV last night.”
