One of Canada’s biggest country music stars, Brett Kissel, won’t let a little thing like a pandemic stop him from entertaining fans in Saskatoon.
Kissel will return to Bridge City on June 27 for an event called “Party in the Parking Lot” at the SaskTel Center. Kissel recently played six sold out drive-in concerts in Edmonton to raise funds for local chalkboard and has three sold out shows for Regina on Saturday in support of the city’s chalkboard. The SaskTel Center collects donations for the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Center at the time of ticket purchase on Ticketmaster.ca and non-perishable food is accepted on site.
“We have proven that there is a great appetite for live music and that my fans miss concerts as much as I do! That’s why it feels so good to announce an epic performance in one of my favorite cities! ”Kissel said in a statement.
The SaskTel Center has had pop-up drive-in shows over the past few weekends, noted Executive Director Scott Ford. He said that “It showed us that our community looks forward to unique experiences coming together.”

Before the COVID-19 pandemic that led to the cancellation of Junos Week in Saskatoon in March, Kissel should be a big part of Canada’s music celebration. The Edmonton-born, multiple Juno winner has been announced as co-organizing the Junos Gala Dinner, which hosts most of the annual awards.
There will be a concession to buy food and drinks, but alcohol will not be served. The availability of washrooms in the SaskTel Center is limited.
The gates should open an hour before the concert. The show itself is expected to last an hour.
“Do not get me wrong. I’m so locked up, I would play for 24 hours if I could, ”said Kissel recently.
Vehicle pass sales begin Thursday at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster.ca ($ 60 general admission, $ 100 premium reserved parking).
