Thomas Rhett is closing out a massive 2019 by announcing his first tour dates for 2020. “The Center Point Road Tour” sees the reigning Academy of Country Music male artist of the year and Pollstar Awards nominee for country tour of the year again jump on that horse and hit the sheds next summer, launching May 29-30 at Bank Of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, N.H.
Live Nation is the tour’s official producer and fans can start purchasing tickets beginning Jan. 24 for select dates included in the promoter’s Country Megaticket. Tickets and more information can be found at the Megaticket website.
It should be a hot ticket if 2019 is any indication. His “Very Hot Summer Tour” was enough to place Rhett at No. 33 on Pollstar’s Top Toursfor the third quarter of this year, thanks to a 40-city outing that ended in October. And he’s a real road warrior: over the last three years, Rhett has played to an average of 11,343 fans and grossing $708,552 per show, across 103 headline shows reported to Pollstar.
The Grammy-nominated Center Point Road is a return to Rhett’s roots and connects fans to his past, weaving together autobiographical stories with familiar sounds that have propelled his meteoric career. It produced a RIAA-certified platinum lead single, “Look What God Gave Her” and other hits including “Remember You Young.”
Cole Swindell will open most dates, and is a popular tourmate on his own having performed with Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Jaso Aldean, Florida Georgia Line and Dierks Bentley, and he’s headlined his own “Reason To Drink Tours” in 2018. Over the last three years, he’s moved an average of 3,664 tickets sold for a per-show gross of $162,033 as reported to Pollstar.
