FARGO -- Pop music star Ed Sheeran will return to the Fargodome, but fans will have to wait a year to hear him “Sing.” He’ll play the Fargodome on Oct. 17, 2018. The Fargodome tweeted the concert announcement around 4:45 p.m., Friday, after tweet-teasing “a huge concert announcement” earlier in the day. The tweeted announcement included a 360-degree rotating image of the singer wearing a North Dakota State University Bison T-shirt with the number 18 on it, the year of his tour.

FERGUS FALLS, Minn.—Charles Beck didn't leave his mark on the landscape. Rather, he made his imprint by capturing the rolling hills, plowed fields and the birds of Otter Tail County in prints, paintings and sculptures appreciated around the country. The 94-year-old artist died Tuesday night in Fergus Falls, a town that benefitted from his work and presence. "Charles has been very influential in this community," said Amanda Cross, curator and educational coordinator at Kaddatz Galleries in downtown Fergus Falls.
FARGO—Sean Astin knows what people want to hear. "The coolest thing about what I'm doing in Fargo is that it's not what I want to talk about, it's what people in Fargo want to talk about," he says. What those who attend the actor's appearance at the Fargo Theatre tonight will most likely want to talk about will be his roles in the epic "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, "The Goonies" and "Rudy." Astin's visit is a fundraiser for the HERO (Healthcare Equipment Recycling Organization), the Fargo Theatre and its annual film festival.
