Grand Oak Opry

Grand Oak Orpy, 273 Goodhue Street , Saint Paul

We are thrilled to announce that Nur-D will open our 2021 season. We had Nur-D booked for 2020, and perhaps no other artist has reflected the events of the past 18 months quite like him. His insights, creativity, and energy have reflected back what so many people in the community have been feeling and experiencing during these times.

Since hitting the scene in 2018, Nur-D’s music has been played around the globe, while making friends wherever he goes. He was voted 2019’s Best New Artist (Citypages) and has gained numerous other accolades in his incredibly young career, including headlining First Avenue’s 2020 Best New Bands show, where he also won Best Local Concert of the Year (Citypages).

With events for Soundset, Paisley Park, US Bank Stadium, The Kennedy Center, and more under his belt, he’s shown that he’s not slowing down any time soon.

TICKETS & LOGISTICS: There are no tickets. For all shows we request a $15 donation/adult, with 100% of the proceeds going to the artist. (No one will be turned away based on the ability to pay, and people can contribute whatever they can afford.)

Seating is first come first served, with the gate open at 6:30. We ask that you bring your own chair/blanket, and anything that you like to eat or drink. (Adult beverages allowed.) We provide an onsite bathroom in our house. No animals allowed.

Levitt at the Falls 2021: Nur-D

Levitt at the Falls , 504 N Phillips Avenue, Sioux Falls

Active in the Minneapolis hip-hop scene since 2018, Nur-D’s music radiates the power of positivity and hits you with honest lyrics and pop culture punchlines. His music could be characterized as “clean rap”, free from cursing and featuring topics ranging from comic books to racial justice, and pro wrestling to body positivity. Nur-D embraces his nerdiness. On Saturday, July 17, Nur-D brings his energetic performance to the Levitt stage in Sioux Falls. This free concert is one of 40 being held at the state-of-the-art Levitt Shell in Falls Park West. During 2021, the free concerts start on June 11 and run through September 11, usually on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Levitt at the Falls has open, raked-lawn seating (on a first-come, first-served basis). Blankets or lawn chairs are welcome. The lawn opens at 6 p.m. and music starts at 6:30 p.m.
