A country music artist will headline a free concert scheduled to celebrate the reopening of downtown Omaha’s Gene Leahy Mall.

Brett Eldredge will perform at the Gene Leahy Mall Performance Pavilion on July 2, the second night of a four-day celebration, according to a press release from The Riverfront.

He will be joined by “American Idol” finalist Lauren Alaina. Alaina is an award-winning performer. His best known songs include “Road Less Traveled” and “What Ifs”.

Eldredge and Alaina will perform at 8 p.m. at Gene Leahy Mall, located between Farnam and Douglas streets, 13th to 8th streets.

The reopening of Gene Leahy is scheduled for July 1. The park is undergoing a massive renovation that is part of a $300 million overhaul of the city’s three waterfront parks: Gene Leahy Mall, Heartland of America Park, and Lewis & Clark Landing.

The reopening of Gene Leahy will be followed by a weekend of events, including a number of family activities, free entertainment and live music.
