Four-time Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan announced during a press conference in Nashville today the addition of 13 stadium concerts to his “What Makes You Country Tour” launching next month. Those dates will be coined “WHAT MAKES YOU COUNTRY TOUR XL STADIUM SIZED.” By the end of October, Luke will headline some of the North America’s biggest and best sports stadiums in Toronto, New York City, Cincinnati, Tampa, Pittsburgh, Boston, Minneapolis, Los Angeles (the first country concert to ever be held in Dodgers Stadium), Denver, St. Louis, Chicago, Vancouver and wrapping the tour in Detroit at Ford Field on October 26.Information on when tickets will be available will be announced locally in the coming weeks.
Sam Hunt joins the tour as the special guest on all stadium shows along with Jon Pardi. Additional openers include Morgan Wallen (May-August), Carly Pearce (September & October) and DJ Rock. A full tour schedule is available on www.lukebryan.com.
“My excitement to play these iconic sports stadiums is truly uncontainable”, said Luke. “Playing my music live is the reason I do what I do and the energy of the FANS is what pushes me year after year to deliver a bigger and better experience. I'm so thankful to be in these venues and cities with some of the brightest names in country music. This lineup fires me up and I can't wait to get this tour started!”
The press announcement was held at “The Steps at WME” where DJ Rock set the tone and Luke welcomed all five artists to talk or perform a song. He toasted wine with openers Morgan and Carly in honor of their current singles “Up Down” and “Hide The Wine” and gave Pardi the thumbs up ‘you get to go to Hollywood’ after he performed, Luke still in American Idol mode. Sam performed his hit “Take Your Time” after telling a funny story about one of his brother’s appearing in Luke’s “Country Girl, Shake It For Me” video for approximately 2.5 seconds. Luke wrapped up the conference performing “What Makes You Country.”
“What Makes You Country Tour” is named after Luke’s recently released album that debuted at #1 on both the Billboard Top 200 and Top Country Albums charts. It became his third consecutive album to debut at #1 on the Top 200 and his fifth #1 debut on the Top Country Albums Chart.
