Dierks Bentley is hitting the road!
On Friday (May 7), the country superstar announced he’ll be embarking on a new tour scheduled to launch later this summer. Bentley’s “Beers on Me Tour” officially kicks off in amphitheaters across the nation starting with an opening show taking place on August 13 at USANA Amphitheatre in Salt Lake City, Utah, and will conclude in Rogers, Arkansas, on October 22.
Joining Bentley on the jaunt are singer-songwriters Riley Green and Parker McCollum, whose song “Beers on Me” — which the former co-wrote — inspired the name of the tour. Additionally, Mitchell Tenpenny will periodically appear as a supporting act, with DJ AyDamn also expected to join the 22-show run.
"I wrote a song a few months back with some friends called ‘Beers On Me’ that inspired this year’s tour name," the “Burning Man” musician shared in a statement. "It’s a pretty simple recipe for summer…get your friends together, have a round or two and dive into some great Country music. That’s exactly what Riley, Parker and I plan on doing out there on the road with our fans. Both these guys are road warriors and great performers that are going to help us get this summer fired up."
Citi cardmembers will get first dibs on tickets to Bentley’s “Beers on Me Tour” in a sale starting Tuesday (May 11) at 10 a.m. local time, with general admission tickets to become available to the general public beginning Friday (May 14). (Click here for more information.)
Bentley’s newest jaunt will follow his previously-announced, five-date “High Times and Hangovers Tour,” which kicks off next week in South Carolina.
