Dierks Bentley is going old school with the announcement of a five-city dive bar tour. 

The superstar will kick off the High Times & Hangovers club tour on May 11 in Isle of Palms, South Carolina and will extend the run through May 15 in Knoxville, Tenn. The last time the “Gone” singer headlined a dive by tour was in 2006 with a tour by the same name. 

Joining him on the five-date run is Cody Canada & The Departed (Cross Canadian Ragweed), who also joined Bentley on his club tour in 2006.

“For us to go back and play these really cool bars, with just fans pressed up against the stage…we’re just kind of knocking the dust off. Our gear, our voices…we’re diving straight into the dunk tank on this one,” Bentley says in a tour promo clip. “Five shows. Five nights. I imagine these will be some of the most memorable shows of my career.”
