Dierks Bentley is plotting a major return to the road.
After selling out his five-city dive bar tour in minutes, the superstar revealed details surrounding his 2021 Beers On Me Tour, featuring special guests Riley Green and Parker McCollum.
Kicking off on August 13 in Salt Lake City, the tour will visit 20+ markets through October 22.
“I wrote a song a few months back with some friends called ‘Beers On Me’ that inspired this year’s tour name,” explains Bentley. “It’s a pretty simple recipe for summer…get your friends together, have a round or two and dive into some great Country music. That’s exactly what Riley, Parker and I plan on doing out there on the road with our fans. Both these guys are road warriors and great performers that are going to help us get this summer fired up.”
To celebrate the tour announcement, Bentley, Green and McCollum joined forces for a cover of Jerry Reed’s iconic hit “Eastbound & Down.” Click below to watch.
Tickets for the 2021 Beers On Me Tour go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, May 14 at 10 am local time. Fans can visit Dierks.com for additional information.
