“After the momentum of our Quillen Arena Concert Announcement, featuring Kane Brown, we really wanted to continue to give Delawareans access to excellent entertainment and we think our concert fans are going to love this addition to the lineup,” said Assistant General Manager, Danny Aguilar. “Brett Eldredge with Drew Parker will take the stage on Friday, July 20. Critically acclaimed for his silky croon and “stomping tunes, there is no doubt that country star Brett Eldredge is going to put on an unbelievable show.” Doors open at 6:30pm with the show beginning at 7:30pm.
