After a five-year drought in the Treasure Valley, WWE Live returned to rock the Ford Idaho Center last year. Now that Nampa has been crushed, the pro wrestling tour will visit Taco Bell Arena in Boise.

No, it’s not technically a concert. But, hey, they play ear-splitting music. It’s also the biggest thing event announced this week.
