Justin Moore returns with opener Mike Ryan for DC Days Concert


The United Wireless Arena will be the official host of the 2018 Dodge City Days Concert Saturday, July 28, as a partnership between VenuWorks of Dodge City, City of Dodge City, and Dodge City Roundup, Inc.

The decision to move the Dodge City Days Kick-Off Concert to a different venue marks a big change in the history of Dodge City Days.

The concert has taken place at Dodge City Roundup since 1989 – a change that Dodge City Roundup President, Dr. R.C. Trotter welcomes and supports.

“Dodge City Roundup is excited for the move of the Dodge City Days Kick-off Concert to United Wireless Arena,” Trotter said. “We think that having the concert in a climate-controlled environment will benefit everyone.

“The move also gives our volunteers more time to prepare the arena for our own rodeo kick-off on the following Tuesday. We look forward to continue working with the folks at United Wireless Arena to make the concert successful.”

The change has also come as a result of strategic planning in conjunction with several partnerships within the community.

“The city is extremely pleased about the opportunity to bring the Dodge City Days concert to the United Wireless Arena.” said Dodge City Mayor Kent Smoll. “We have been collaborating with Roundup Rodeo, VenuWorks, Dodge City Area Chamber of Commerce and Boot Hill Casino and Resort to make this a great event.

“The city and Roundup began discussions after last year’s concert about the change in venue and Roundup was very favorable to the idea.

“We are looking forward to kicking off Dodge City Days with a great artist like Justin Moore and want to encourage everyone to get their tickets early so they don’t miss out.”

According to United Wireless Arena executive director Chris Ragland, Justin has seven top 10 singles and was named New Artist of the Year in 2014.

“Additionally,” said Ragland, “Justin has been nominated for multiple ACM, ACA, and ACC awards. Bringing an artist of Justin’s caliber speaks well of our community and our venue.

“To be able to tie Justin’s appearance in with a great event like Dodge City Days is an added bonus.

“We hope everyone comes out and supports the show – it will be a great kick off to start an exciting couple of weeks in our city.”

Adding to the changes for the 2018 Dodge City Days Concert is Radio Station Group, Continuous Country Q97.

“Continuous country Q97 is very excited and honored to be a part of promoting the Dodge City Days concert once again,” Q97 Media Consultant Christa Roy said. “We’re back and we’re more than ready to help kick-off Dodge City Days with Justin Moore at the United Wireless Arena – we think it’s an excellent partnership and are ecstatic to be involved.”

Boot Hill Casino and Resort general manager, Diane Giardine added, “We are thrilled to work with United Wireless Arena, the City of Dodge City, Dodge City Roundup and the Dodge City Area Chamber of Commerce to bring Justin Moore to Dodge City for the Dodge City Days concert – Another great show making Dodge City the top entertainment destination for Southwest Kansas.”

Dodge City Convention and Visitor’s Bureau director Jan Stevens also added, “Dodge City Days and the opening concert is always one of the biggest draws to our community every year.

“Justin Moore is a crowd pleaser, and is known for giving a great show. This is a ‘Don’t Miss’ concert.

“We are excited to see this first-class artist booking in Dodge. What a great addition to all the other exciting events during Dodge City Days.

“Get your tickets now.”
