Tim McGraw announced a summer tour of North American sheds – with a couple stadiums thrown in for good measure – on Monday.
The country legend will kick off his “Here On Earth Tour” at St. Joseph’s Health Amphitheater at Lakeview in Syracuse, N.Y., on July 10, and wind his way across the continent through Sept. 26, when he closes the trek out at Chicago’s Hollywood Casino Amphitheater.
Recent Pollstar cover stars Midland will provide support for the tour’s entirety, as will Ingrid Andress. McGraw also has two stadium dates on the books with Luke Combs, at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium (Sept. 4) and Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park (Sept. 12).
“Anyone who knows me knows how much I love to be outside in the summertime playing music,” McGraw said in a statement. “Everyone is there, sharing the moment, having fun and letting loose. To be here on earth in this moment, together, sharing our love for music and getting through all that life is throwing us — that’s what it’s all about.”
McGraw’s first tour of this decade follows the ’10s, when he was one of the live business’s most bankable stars year in and year out. His tour with wife Faith Hill landed the couple on Pollstar‘s Year End Top 100 Worldwide Tours chart in 2017 and 2018, with a total gross of $100.6 million over those two years. McGraw appeared on the chart every year from 2010 to 2014, including 2012, when his tour with Kenny Chesney ranked No. 7 with a gross of $96.5 million.
Along the way, McGraw played several of the venues he’s slated to perform at this summer, such as Cincinnati’s Riverbend Music Center. McGraw plays the venue July 23; he played the venue four times from 2010 to 2014, grossing $2.41 million and selling 68,749 total tickets. Other frequent McGraw stops on tap in 2020 include Toronto’s Budweiser Stage (July 25), Phoenix’s Ak-Chin Pavilion (Aug. 14) and Salt Lake City’s USANA Amphitheatre (Aug. 27).
