Wedensday morning, Grammy nominee and acclaimed singer songwriter Khalid revealed a special hometown show in El Paso.
The concert event is set to take place September 14 at UTEP Don Haskins Center, and tickets go on sale starting Friday, June 29 at 10:00 a.m. Mountain Time via Ticketmaster.
This past year Khalid has performed around the country as part of “The Roxy Tour,” his third North American headlining trek. The outing was inspired by Khalid’s late puppy Roxy, who he rescued from a Los Angeles-based animal shelter, but tragically passed away.
Khalid is passionate about using his platform to support animal rights and finding safe, humane environments for animals to live. A $1 donation per every ticket sold to the El Paso show will be given to a local animal shelter, as was the case throughout the full run of the tour.
Five-time Grammy-nominated artist Khalid has seen great success since he released his first single “Location” right before his high school graduation. The song’s domination led to Khalid’s major label deal with Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records followed by the release of his debut album American Teen.
The album received mass critical acclaim with Rolling Stone calling Khalid a “pop prodigy” and TIME Magazine stating, ““His thoughtful, relatable reflections on modern youth culture and the limitations of love are just as pitch-perfect as his soulful, measured delivery.”
American Teen shattered expectations, as it stayed in the Top 200 for 51 weeks, peaked at #4, and stayed in the Top 20 for 48 out of the 51 weeks it was in the Top 200. The singer-songwriter has over one billion streams worldwide across all partners, his first single “Location” is certified 4x Platinum by the RIAA, and his previous single “Young Dumb & Broke” is certified 3X Platinum.
