Brad Paisley, who makes his Australian debut at the sold-out-in-one-day CMC Rocks festival in Queensland September 2022, is stretching out.

Potts Entertainment, Chugg Entertainment and Frontier Touring have him headlining at Melbourne’s 15,000-capacity Rod Laver Arena (September 29), Sydney’s 21,89-cap Qudos Bank Arena (October 5), and Auckland’s 12,200-cap Spark Arena (October 8).
Nashville-based Aussie Morgan Evans, also a CMC headliner, opens on all shows. NZ country singer Kaylee Bell joins them in Auckland.
The CMC Rocks 2022 festival also features headliners Kane Brown and Morgan Evans. It marks the event’s return since the COVID shutdown, when Thomas Rhett, Florida Georgia Line and Luke Combs headlined in 2019.
Paisley averages 10,164 tickets sold per show for a gross of $426,964.
