Tickets have been selling quickly and consistently for an upcoming concert by famed country trio The Band Perry.

However, seats are still available for the concert, which begins at 7:30 p.m. Sunday at the Ralph Engelstad Arena, according to Chris Semrau, the facility’s director of events and media relations.

“For a national tour to come to your community and have tickets under $30 is a great value and we hope people will come and support live music,” he said Wednesday.

The concert will be set up with the stage pushed only partially back from the center line on the ice arena. This, along with a thrust platform going out into the floor audience, will make the concert seem a lot more intimate than usual in such a large space.

“It’s a large production,” Semrau said. “They’ve got a quality video package and a great sound system.”

The Band Perry, fronted by Kimberly Perry and backed by her two brothers Neil and Reid, first rose to fame in 2010 and are known for hits like “If I Die Young” and “You Lie.” The band recently made headlines for helping with the expenses needed to bury a mother and eight children who were killed in a house fire in Kentucky.

Up-and-comer Easton Corbin will be the featured act with Canadian-born Lindsay Ell opening. Tickets are available at the arena box office from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays.
