“Country Music’s Party of the Year” will continue long after the final ACM Award is handed out as Riley Green just announced a post-ACM Awards concert at Mandalay Bay’s House of Blues in Las Vegas.

Kicking off at 10 pm on Sunday, April 5, the special “Riley Green & Friends” concert will feature the rising superstar and yet-to-be-announced special guests. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 31 at Riley Green’s official website.

“I heard we’d be in Sin City for a few days so I figured my time might be better spent putting on a show than sitting at the tables for too long,” joked Riley. “I’m looking forward to having a couple friends jump up on stage and wrap up the weekend Vegas style.”

Green’s rise to the top continues as his latest single, “I Wish Grandpas Never Died,” makes its way up the charts. The singer/songwriter’s breakout year was recently recognized with an iHeartRadio Music Awards Best New Country Artist nomination, and next month, he’ll perform at Country Radio Seminar’s prestigious New Faces show.

Fans can catch Riley Green on Jason Aldean’s We Back Tour throughout the spring.
