Luke Bryan has added 13 stadium dates to his What Makes You Country tour. The superstar made the announcement yesterday (Tuesday, January 30th) during a press conference in Nashville where he was joined by several artists who will share the bill with him. Sam Hunt will be special guest on all stadium shows along with Jon Pardi. Additional openers include Morgan Wallen (May-August), Carly Pearce (September & October) and DJ Rock. The What Makes You Country tour kicks off next month, while the stadium dates will be called the What Makes You Country Tour XL Stadium Sized. Information on when tickets will be available will be announced locally in the coming weeks. A full tour schedule is available at lukebryan.com.
Luke told reporters about the "stadium sized" lineup of talent on the tour: [“I want fans to be able to come to a show and ‘A’ I want them to hear an artist with big ole crazy hits. I just love to see the fans out there singing these big hits that they’re hearing on the radio, and I think when they can come out and see artists in that setting, I just enjoy trying to make the best fan experience. The fact that we can all come together and create a package for fans and at the end of the day I get so excited to put these guys in the best scenario possible to showcase what they are and where they’re going and what they’re going to be. And when I found out we could put this together, we got on the phone and started booking stadiums, and we were like, ‘Let’s go after this thing.’ So, it’s just exciting to go in with a line up like this.”] SOUNDCUE (:47 OC: . . . up like this.)
Luke's first stadium date of the year is on May 31st in Toronto. He will be the first country artist to perform at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. That show is schedule for July.
