This morning Dierks Bentley "highjacked" CMT's twitter account to announce, via a series of clever tweets, his 2014 Riser Tour dates and supporting acts. The first leg of the tour will kick off May 9 in Charlotte, NC and continue through the year. Special guests include Chris Young, Chase Rice and Jon Pardi.
Fans can purchase tickets beginning Jan. 24 for select cities as part of tour promoter Live Nation’s Country Megaticket at www.Megaticket.com
Additional ticket information will be available in the coming weeks at www.dierks.com.
“This tour is the culmination of everything I've been working on for the past two years, both out on the road and in the studio recording RISER,” said Bentley. "I know what my fans want: a kick ass show, an affordable ticket and a good parking lot scene to get the pre-gaming going! The guys opening the show and getting the party started all know how to put on a great live show, and when it comes time for my set, I can promise that we are going big! I have never been more excited about a tour.”
With ten years experience honing his stage skills, Bentley's live show continues to catch the attention of critics, who have called it “dynamic” and note his continued devotion to interacting with the fans and creating “a nearly nonstop, high energy affair heavy with hits” (Reading Eagle).
