Looking for and idea for a road trip? R&B/Hip-Hip star Akon will be performing at Westman Place (Brandon Keystone Centre) on Thursday October 29, 2009 at 8:00pm.

Brandon is an approximately a 2.5 hour drive from Winnipeg – possibly quicker with the new 110 km/h speed limit.

Akon was last in Winnipeg on July 15, 2008 with Wyclef and Sean Paul. Click here to read our impressions. Let’s hope he doesn’t punch a girl in the face again.

Tickets go on sale Friday September 25.

UPDATE: Girlicious and Danny Fernandez will be opening for Akon.
