Current CMA “Male Vocalist of the Year” nominee Dierks Bentley’s 2017 WHAT THE HELL WORLD TOUR wrapped this weekend, after consistently ushering crowds of 25,000+, the biggest of his career, while notching more than 60 shows at arenas and amphitheaters across the country since January. Bentley “has always been one of Country’s most engaging performers…with enough hits to fill an entire set,” (Asbury Park Park Press) and earned the top spot on Billboard‘s “Hot Tours” list now having sold more than 750,000 tickets this year to date.
“This tour has been one of those experiences you wait for your entire life,” said Bentley. “To the fans and all the people who filled every seat in the house, who stood on their feet for hours and spent their hard-earned money to come see a show, you have made this an unforgettable journey. It’s going to be weird not having Cole and Pardi around, but I can’t thank those guys enough for coming along for this ride. Night after night the crowds were more explosive than the last…it will be a really hard year to top!”
The “regular hit-making machine,” (Mercury News) has a “reputation as one of the hardest-working entertainers in country music,” (Music Row) as “he sells out enormous tours, is a perennial favorite of format radio stations, and earns critical acclaim without compromising his artistic vision,” (Entertainment Weekly). With 17 No. One hits and more than one billion digital streams he “continues to take risks that pay off,” (USA Today) as his eighth studio album BLACK has been hailed the “most fully-formed LP of his career,” (TIME). BLACK has garnered nominations from the ACM, CMA, GRAMMY and Billboard Music Awards while earning three consecutive No. Ones; the GOLD certified title-track and the PLATINUM certified hits “Somewhere On A Beach” and “Different For Girls.” For more information visit www.dierks.com.
