Eagle-based promoter CTTouring, which operates the Revolution Center Concert House in Garden City, has a message for the Treasure Valley. To quote the email that popped into my inbox this morning: They are “not taking the winter off. BOOM!”

Three new hip-hop shows will go on sale between today and Friday. There’s also an EDM bash Thanksgiving weekend.

Here’s the lowdown:


G-Eazy with ASAP Ferg, Nef the Paraoh and Marc E. Bassy are headed to CenturyLink Arena in Downtown Boise for a 7:30 p.m. show Friday, Jan. 8, 2016.

A limited number of early-bird tickets will go on sale at 2 p.m. today for $25 at Ticketfly or CTTouring. After those are history, advance general-admission tickets will go on sale for $35 starting at 10 a.m. Friday at Ticketfly or CenturyLink Arena. (They’ll be $40 at the door.) You also can reserve suites at the arena by calling the Grove Hotel.

The last time G-Eazy visited Idaho, he sold out the 2,200-capacity Revolution Center three weeks in advance. And that was without ASAP Ferg tagging along.

By the way, Mom, there is potential profanity in the videos here, so consider yourself warned.


Rapper Lupe Fiasco — who was a big “get” for Boise State when he headlined the university’s indoor Spring Fling in 2011 — will return for a visit to Garden City this time. He’ll headline an 8 p.m. show Wednesday, Jan. 20, at the Revolution Center.

Advance tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at Ticketfly for $25 (first 100 sold) and $30 (or $35 at the door). VIP ($55) and meet-and-greet ($65) options also are available. The opening acts are still being worked out.


The Doggfather himself, Snoop Dogg, apparently considers the RevCenter his home away from home in the Boise area. Snoop will return for another performance Friday, Dec. 18, with openers Mack 10, Tha Eastsidaz and Bonafied.

Tickets to the 8 p.m. gig go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at Ticketfly for $35 (first 200 sold), $45 and $65 (VIP).


Last but not least, got relatives to entertain on Thanksgiving weekend? Beat their brains out with some EDM at the RevCenter on Saturday, Nov. 28, at Trvpgiving Fest. Acts include LOUDPVCK, Aazar, Kid Koma and more.

Advance tickets are $10 (first 100 sold), $15 (second 100) and $20 general admission, $35 VIP. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at Ticketfly.
