Three-time ACM Award winner Trace Adkins is back on the road with his brand-new “Don’t Stop Tour.” The tour officially began on February 7 in San Antonio, TX, but that was a one-off show. The main party doesn’t start until April 4. Between now and then, Adkins is performing with friend and “Hillbilly Bone” collaborator Blake Shelton on Shelton’s still-ongoing “Friends & Heroes Tour”.
The “Don’t Stop Tour” will take Trace Adkins to 39 different cities, including stops in Oxford, AL, West Wendover, NV, Del Mar, CA, Denver, CO and Spokane, WA . The things kicks off in Cleveland, MS at the Bologna Performing Arts Center, and will conclude with a cruise ship show at the Country Cruise festival in Key West, FL on November 13. In between, Adkins will be performing at the Country USA Music Festival in Oshkosh, WI on June 27, and at the Suwannee River Jam in Live Oak, Fl on May 3. In addition to the larger festivals, he will be also making an appearance at several casino shows throughout the country, as well as at a handful of state and county fairs. These include the San Diego County Fair on July 2, the Montana State Fair on July 31, and the Spokane County Interstate Fair on September 10.
The veteran country singer has promised that he’ll be performing new music on his upcoming tour, the first since he dropped his 2017 album Something’s Going On. In the album singles, Adkins sounds wiser and more thoughtful than he did in the past. This is particularly true on “Jesus and Jones” and “Watered Down” songs, where he reminisces about being a younger man. “Someone asked me the other day if I felt like maybe I was moving into an elder statesman role,” he said. “Yeah, I dig it. I’m glad I’ve been around enough that someone might look at me like that.”
Tickets for the tour range from $54 up to over $900, depending on the venue and a seating choice. VIP tickets are available for select festival events, but none of them include a Meet and Greet opportunity. Some of the shows are already sold out, so act fast to book your ticket today while they are still available.
