Chris Stapleton will support three dates on Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers' 40th Anniversary Tour. He'll perform at Chicago's Wrigley Field on June 29 and two nights at Milwaukee's Summerfest July 5-6. Joe Walsh is scheduled for the other opening dates.
In other Chris Stapleton news…he just secured his place on Santa’s “nice” list this season. He's lending his tour bus to raise money for the annual Christmas 4 Kids campaign. The charity event charges $5 to take a tour of his bus and the money is used for a Christmas shopping spree for children. Other artists participating include 3 Doors Down, Darryl Worley, and T.G. Sheppard. The event is tonight, just north of Nashville in Hendersonville, Tennessee.
