The best-selling duo of all time, Brooks & Dunn is back with the REBOOT 2022 TOUR, kicking off on May 5 in Evansville, IN.
The 19-city tour finds Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn visiting arenas, some of which they haven’t played in 10 or even 20 years.
“Last year we fired up the buses and ‘let it roll’ again,” shared Brooks. “Thanks for reminding us how you guys can shake every stage we walk on to…damn, it feels good to be back with ya! Bring it! We’ll meet you there!”
“It is our full intent to step onto the stage each night and throw down like the wildest honky tonk you’ve never been to…yet,” added Dunn. “Don’t be concerned about the mess left afterwards, y’all just enjoy yourselves and we’ll worry about that later.”

Among the cities Brooks & Dunn will visit this summer is Nashville, TN, which is sure to be one of the tour’s biggest sellouts. In a recent interview with Country Now and other media outlets, Dunn joked about the show in Music City, acknowledging that everyone he knows will be phoning in a favor for a ticket.
“I’ll tell you what we’ve learned over the years – it’s how we’re going to put a virus in our phones and have them shut down,” he laughed, adding that he’s already starting to hear from relatives he hasn’t heard from in years.
In all seriousness, Brooks admitted playing Nashville used to be quite nerve-wracking but things have changed over the years.
“Nashville is… [It] used to scare to death because everyone’s got their opinion on what this acts about and all that stuff. And you know, we’re not really running scared like we used to – not that we were afraid of it but, you’re just nervous about playing here just because the reviews the next day. It’s not that it can’t necessarily make or break you, but for country music, we’re New York. Everything blows out of here,” he shared. “But I think right now we’re just having so much fun on stage and, honestly, last year was a good run for us…We had a lot of people come out to see us play, a lot of fans we hadn’t seen before, and I think we’ll probably go into Nashville just feeling good and ready to party.”
