October 20, 2015
Nashville, TN – (October 20, 2015) – Luke Bryan, the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year and two-time ACM Entertainer of the Year, will embark on a brand new tour in early 2016, “Kill The Lights Tour.” The first leg will launch on February, 16 in Evansville, Indiana with guests Little Big Town and Dustin Lynch.
Ticket on sales for the “Kill The Lights Tour” begin in November. Citi is the official credit card of Luke’s “Kill the Lights Tour.” Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning in November through Citi’s Private Pass Program. For complete presale details visit www.citiprivatepass.com. Live Nation is the national tour promoter.
Last week, Luke wrapped his seventh annual “Farm Tour” after multiple weather delays caused a shift in concert dates along the way. The tour brought 110,000 fans to the seven cities that played so far with the Columbia, South Carolina rescheduled date to be announced soon. A portion of the ticket proceeds are granted for local college scholarships (“Luke Bryan Farm Tour Scholarship”) to students from a farming family within the communities the tour plays. To see highlights from “Farm Tour” watch the new LBTV episode at http://youtu.be/WZqotCoRJDs.
Luke’s current headline tour, “Kick the Dust Up Tour,” will come to a close the end of this month as it plays a final Sold-Out stadium date in Detroit, Michigan on October, 30 at Ford Field.
