Brantley Gilbert’s got plenty to be “Fire’t Up” about alright – the country star has just announced plans for a massive North American tour dubbed the “Fire’t Up Tour,” coming to a city near you early next year!
The 34-date jaunt kicks off with a pair of dates in Canada before heading stateside, starting with a show in Mashantucket, CT on January 25. From there, Gilbert will hit the stage in cities including Minneapolis, Tulsa, Portland, and Knoxville before bringing the curtain down with a final performance at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre on May 8.
The “Fire’t Up Tour” takes its name from Gilbert’s new song, “Fire’t Up,” off his highly anticipated upcoming album Fire & Brimstone.
“I truly feel like we’re at the point that we can let the music take us where it is meant to go, so with every new album we like to change up our show and make it something that plays to those stories and characters,” Gilbert shared in a press release.
“We’ll of course still do the hits our fans love, but we are looking at this as an opportunity to turn up the heat a bit and give the songs on Fire & Brimstone a chance to really rock.”
Fire & Brimstone is due to drop October 4.
