Country star Kane Brown has postponed a sold-out show at Staples Center in Los Angeles, scheduled for Friday, October 18, due to the death of drummer Kenny Dixon in a car accident.
Brown was set to perform at Staples Center on Friday as the first of several acts to perform at the venue to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the arena.
The new date for the show will be January 9, 2020. Tickets purchased for the October 18 show will be honored.
The show, Brown’s first as an arena headliner, reportedly sold out in an hour and a half.
“Our heartfelt condolences go out to Kane, his entire team and the family of his long-time drummer Kenny Dixon for their tragic loss this weekend,” the Staples Center said in a statement.
“You started all of this with me from the start in 2015 when nobody else believed we would make it out of Chattanooga playing for 500 people, and your last show was in a F-in’ stadium, my guy,” Brown said about Dixon on Instagram.
He added, “I know u will be watching over us with that redneck accent that we all love and you will never be replaced bro!!! I promise u that!!”
