Chris Stapleton’s star has definitely risen, as he earned several Grammy Awards over the weekend. He is giving fans plenty of live performances in 2018, announcing the return of his All-American Road Show tour.

The tour starts June 16 at

Special guests Marty Stuart and Brent Cobb are coming along for the ride.

The dates are a mix of amphitheatres and arenas including the Forum in Los Angeles and Madison Square Garden Arena in New York.

Citi cardholders and fan club members get presales Feb. 6 at 10 a.m. The general onsales start Feb. 9 at 10 a.m. local time.

He also has a few dates scheduled in March and May, with his next performance being at NRG Park in Houston March 16.

Stapleton won three Grammy awards last night for Best Country Album, Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance. He is also teaming up with big names in music, performing with Emmylou Harris at the awards show, playing with Sturgill Simpson on “Saturday Night Live” and featuring on Justin Timberlake’s new song “Say Something.”

The country star reported a pretty successful 2017, coming in at No. 53 on Pollstar’s Year End Top 100 Worldwide Tours chart. Incorporating estimates for missing dates we had Chris with $38.3 million grossed on the year with 822,417 tickets to 68 shows at an average price of $46 per ticket. Like many other country artists, Stapleton is good about keeping prices low, meaning his figures in ticket sales stand out among his peers in that section of the chart.

One venue Stapleton is making a repeat visit to is Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Calif Jul 28. Last year he had prices between $20 and $70, with 16,397 tickets sold, meaning a payday of $549,662.

While that is nothing to sneeze at, it’s actually more-or-less middle of the road for the business he was doing on the year. He will also be returning this year to Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati Oct. 4, where he grossed $824,805 off 20,341 tickets last year.

One of Stapleton’s biggest paydays in 2017 came off two nights at Alpharetta, Ga.’s Verizon Amphitheatre May 5-6, where he moved 24,970 tickets for a $1,341,644 gross. He plays in Alpharetta Oct. 19.
