– Dierks Bentley will kick off the first leg of his Country & Cold Cans Tour on Oct. 6. Special guests Jerrod Niemann and Eli Young Band will open for Bentley on the 22-city run that wraps on Nov. 19.
Fan club members can purchase tickets for the first date, which is in Lacrosse, Wisc., beginning tomorrow at www.dierks.com, while tickets for the general public will go on sale this Friday, Aug. 19 through Ticketmaster. Additional tour dates will be announced over the coming weeks.
"It's been a killer summer playing festivals all over the country and partying with the most die-hard country music fans out there," said Bentley. "We're going to crank up the 'Country & Cold Cans' tour in the Fall and keep it going. I can't imagine that I'll have to convince Jerrod or EYB to have a cold beer or two...they are always up for the party."
Bentley's current hit, Am I The Only One is in the top five. Bentley is currently in the studio finishing up his sixth Capitol Nashville studio album.
Specific tour dates were not announced, although the tour ends in Denver. Hinckley, Minn. will host a shot on Oct. 7.
