SIOUX FALLS, SD (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Sioux Falls, South Dakota is getting its New Year's wishes early with the announcement of the largest entertainment destination ever built in the state's largest city. Badlands Pawn, Gold & Jewelry was unveiled by Chuck Brennan. Brennan is a Sioux Falls native and founder of Dollar Loan Center, and the Brennan Rock & Roll Academy.
Badlands Pawn, Gold & Jewelry is a $15 million venture that plans to become one of the state's largest tourist destinations in the heart of the newly coined "Sioux Falls Sports & Entertainment District." Scheduled to open Thanksgiving Day, 2015, Badlands encompasses approximately 40,000 square feet and includes but will not be limited to:
Badlands Radio will blend several of the venue's elements, with "Metal Cowboy" Ron Keel serving as DJ and bandleader to the Badlands House Band. Casting has already begun for six musicians and two back-up singers that will not only tour the Midwest, but also rehearse and perform on-site on the concert stage.
Brennan has a lifelong passion for Rock & Roll music. Before founding Dollar Loan Center in Sioux Falls, he opened and operated one of the largest Rock & Roll concert halls in the Midwest, The Blitz Ballroom. Brennan jokes, "I'll have my first two 8 track tapes available at all times at Badlands, AC/DC's Back in Black and Cheap Trick's Live at Budokan." –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
