There’s still time to snag ticket for Dierks Bentley’s 2019 “Burning Man” tour which he promoted in Canada earlier this week with a cheeky figure skating routine featuring Bentley along with tour openers Jon Pardi and Tenille Townes . But with a promo like that, the chance to see this country music hitmaker is likely going to sell out fast.
The first leg of the tour kicks off Jan. 17 in Hamilton, Ontario, and wraps March 30 in Grand Rapids, MI. VIP tickets include admission to the Mountain High VIP Lodge, featuring a private pre-show acoustic performance with Bentley, limited edition concert memorabilia and other perks, and members of the American singer’s fan club – called “The Congress” – will get a chance to attend a Meet and Greet with the artist.
The show also includes opening act Hot Country Nights, with Bentley in disguise, and will feature hits from Bentley’s album The Mountain, called one of the best albums of 2018 by publications including Esquire, USA Today, Rolling Stone and The Tennessean. Songs from the album include Dierks’ current Top 5 single, “Burning Man,” which inspired the tour’s name, and “Woman, Amen,” called Bentley’s “most affecting song” by Rolling Stone.
Bentley has been a country music hitmaker since his first self-titled release in 2003, which spawned the chart-topping “What Was I Thinkin’,” a song that reached the top spot on the country music charts later that year. Other, later hits include “Come a Little Closer,” “Settle for a Slowdown” and “Lot of Leavin’ Left to Do” from his second album, Modern Day Drifter, which brought him the Country Music Association’s Horizon Award and a spot in the Grand Ol’ Opry.
He followed up with “Free and Easy (Down the Road I Go)” from his third album, Feel That Fire, the title track from his fourth release, which also included the hit “Sideways,” and “Up on the Ridge,” the title track from his fifth release, a bluegrass album. By his sixth album, Dierks was hitting number one with most of his singles, including “Am I the Only One,” “Home,” and “5-1-5-0” from that album, “Home,” and “I Hold On,” “Drunk on a Plane” and “Say You Do” from his seventh album. His eighth album, Black, including the chart-topping “Somewhere on a Beach.”
Tickets for the show with stops in close to 25 cities in the US and Canada including Nashville, TN, Reno, and Fresno in the US and Ottawa, Calgary and Vancouver in Canada, range from $60 to $780 for general admission seating, depending on the venue and seating options. Great seats including VIP packages are available through CountryTourNow.
