Allan Gets Off On Pain

Sure, you can take two aspirins and call your doctor in the morning, but wouldn’t you rather “Get Off On The Pain” with Gary Allan?

That’s the name of the country star’s fall-winter tour, sponsored by House of Blues. Look for the fun to begin at Chicago’s HOB on Oct. 14 with the tour running through Dec. 31 in Las Vegas at, you guessed it, House of Blues.

Life’s been good for Allan since he emerged in the mid ‘90s. He’s sold more than 6 million albums, released four No. 1 hits and 10 Top 10 hits. Plus, he plans on giving his fans a taste of his just-completed album when he hits the road this fall. The first single off of the album – “Today” – is already climbing the charts.

After the Chicago opener, look for Allan to play Houston’s House of Blues Oct. 16. The next night is New Orleans at HOB and then it’s off to Amarillo for an Oct. 22 gig at that city’s civic center.

Other stops include Lubbock Oct. 23 at the United Spirit Center; Dallas Oct. 24 at the Superpages Center; Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 5 at Pershing Center; Sioux City, Iowa, at Tyson Center Nov. 6; Mankato, Minn., at Alltel Center Nov. 7 and Bloomington, Ill, at the US Cellular Coliseum Nov. 8.

Cities also on the schedule include Nashville, Atlanta, Charlotte, Salisbury, Md.; Akron, Huntington, W.Va.; Pikeville, Ky., Colorado Springs, Salt Lake City and Boise.

Allan will welcome special guests Jack Ingram and Eli Young Band on select dates and Stoney LaRue and Justin Moore on select Texas dates. For more information, please click here for the Gary Allan Web site.
