Dee Jay Silver Announces New Tour Dates

Dee Jay Silver

Groundbreaking DJ/remixer/producer Dee Jay Silver just wrapped up touring all summer long with country superstar Brad Paisley, drawing a lot of attention for their battles each night, turntables vs. guitar. He’s now gearing up for “The Country Club Tour with Dee Jay Silver,” a new run of headlining performances which kicked off this past weekend in Las Vegas where he performed all three days at the inaugural Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival, sharing a stage with headliners Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert and Jason Aldean. Through the end of the year, SILVER will make multiple stops in Nevada, Kentucky, Missouri, Alabama, Tennessee, Texas, North Carolina, Arizona and Illinois. All confirmed dates are listed below and more are still being added. Visit www.DeeJaySilver.com for ticket links.

“The Country Club Tour is hitting some of my favorite places in the world like Joe’s Bar in Chicago, Whiskey Row in Scottsdale, The Bank in Vegas and so many more,” SILVER exclaims. “And I’m really looking forward to getting the party going at the UK football games and pre-races at Talladega Superspeedway and Texas Motor Speedway. It’s gonna be awesome!”

SILVER–the first DJ signed to a major Nashville record deal, RCA Nashville–has been tapped as the University of Kentucky football team’s official DJ, warming up the crowds before the home games. Last year SILVER held the same title for the NFL’s Tennessee Titans. The sports fan will also perform this Fall at two iconic race car speedways: Talladega Superspeedway in Lincoln, AL and the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, TX. He will also participate in Nashville radio station The Big 98 WSIX’s “Battle of the Bones” Halloween party along with Jake Owen, Gary Allan, Big & Rich, and so many more. Tickets are on sale now here.

The non-stop DJ will do all this while keeping up with his nationally syndicated country radio show called “The Country Club with Dee Jay Silver.” Each week, the show features up-tempo mixes and mash-ups of hits from country music’s biggest stars and newcomers, with an infusion of unique rhythms and occasional tracks from other genres. Over 40 markets including some of the leading country radio stations across America are on board. The show takes over the airwaves on Saturday nights generally from 7pm-12am. SILVER recently spoke with Billboard.com about his new radio show; check out that interview here.

Miranda

The inaugural Route 91 Harvest, brought to Vegas by the creators of premier country music festivals Watershed and Faster Horses, in collaboration with MGM Resorts International, took place at MGM Resorts Village this past weekend with over 20,000 in attendance and rave reviews from fans and critics.

The lavish country music festival kicked-off on Friday night with headliner Blake Shelton setting the pace for the high roller weekend with Las Vegas Review Journal heralding the festival as “Country’s arrival in Vegas.”

On Saturday, Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert continued the 3-day country music event playing sets “among the most fun and raucous of the fest[ival]”

Jason Aldean

Route 91 Harvest, whose name is taken from the original name of the Las Vegas Boulevard on which it sits, ended Sunday’s festivities with a bang with Jason Aldean closing out the show. “The final artist to take the stage at the festival, Aldean started and ended emphatically, ” said Rolling Stone Country of the last set of the weekend.

Fans also enjoyed the festival in true Vegas- style with the option of luxury private suites providing lounge seating, drinks service and catering as well as viewing decks with multiple platforms giving fans the opportunity to see the stage close up, the site as a whole and great views of the infamous Las Vegas Strip surrounding the festival.

“I honestly didn’t know what to expect when we decided to launch a country festival of this scale in Las Vegas, but this weekend has far surpassed any exceptions I could have had,” said Brian O’Connell, Live Nation President of Country Touring. “I’m beyond thrilled that Sin City has embraced us and our concept with open arms.”
