Dierks Bentley caused quite the commotion on Wednesday when he hacked CMT’s Twitter to announce his 2014 RISER TOUR with special guests Chris Young, Chase Rice, and Jon Pardi.
Bentley sent a series of tweets hinting at a major announcement and even posted a selfie to prove he was really behind the tweets before finally tweeting, “Looks like Goldie will be working overtime this year. Y’all ready for a #RISERTOUR?!” And fans were indeed ready, as Twitter burst with excitement in the following hours.
“This tour is the culmination of everything I’ve been working on for the past two years, both out on the road and in the studio recording RISER,” explains the “I Hold On” singer. Bentley knows exactly what his fans want – “a kick ass show, an affordable ticket and a good parking lot scene to get the pre-gaming going,” he says, and promises to deliver.
Fans can begin to purchase tickets for the first leg of the tour, which kicks off on May 9 in Charlotte, NC, on January 24.
With the release of his album RISER on February 25 and the announcement of the associated RISER TOUR, the excitement surrounding Dierks Bentley continues to rise – and at this rate, it’s never coming down!
