Flo Rida is known for lighting up stages across the country with hit songs like "Right Round," "Low," "Good Feeling," "Wild One" featuring Sia, "I Don't Like It, I Love It," "Club Can't Handle Me," and "My House."

This will not be the first time Flo Rida visits the Sioux Empire. In the summer of 2022, Flo Rida and his crew performed a private Sioux Falls show for the First Dakota Pro Am Jam. He was ELECTRIC! People were dancing the night away.
