Dierks Bentley Announces ‘What The Hell World Tour’

A “full-throttle weekend party” is headed your way in 2017 when Dierks Bentley’s “What The Hell World Tour” hits your town with special guests Cole Swindell and Jon Pardi.

So far, the routing includes 23 cities in the U.S. and Canada. The first leg of the tour kicks off Jan. 19 in Dayton, Ohio, and runs through April. Bentley has revealed specific dates and venues for half of the stops, with the rest of the details yet to come.

Bentley is continuing to support his eighth studio album, Black, which was released in May at the top of the country charts in the U.S. and U.K.

“Coming off the electricity and emotion of two nights at Red Rocks last week, it felt right to just go ahead and announce plans for next year and keep this thing rolling,” Bentley said. “There’s a song on my album called ‘What The Hell Did I Say’ and it seemed like an appropriate title for at tour with Cole and Pardi. I have a feeling I’ll be asking myself that question the morning after many of our shows and late night hangs because you really don’t know what will happen when the three of us get together. There has been a lot of drunk calls and texts between all of us over the last year trying to make this tour happen, and I’m excited we were able to pull it off.”

Other tracks on Black include the smash hit “Somewhere on a Beach” and “Different for Girls” (feat. Elle King).

Bentley’s remaining 2017 schedule is made up of U.S. dates booked through late October, including gigs in Grand Rapids, Springfield, Mo.
