Koe Wetzel surprised fans early Monday morning with the announcement of his massive, 46-date headlining Damn Near Normal World Tour. 

Announced on the heels of the release of his new single, “Damn Near Normal,” the trek will bring the country rocker to arenas and amphitheaters across the globe. Kicking off on July 27 in his home state of Texas, the Damn Near Normal Tour will bring Wetzel to 34 U.S. cities, including Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Nashville, and Indianapolis, as well as 12 cities across the pond with stops in the U.K., Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark.

Who Is Opening For Koe Wetzel in 2024?

Joining the genre-bending star on the road are Treaty Oak Revival, Kolby Cooper, Pecos & The Rooftops, Tanner Usrey, Dylan Wheeler, Kat Hasty, and Kolton Moore on select dates. 

“It’s been a fun winter in the studio working on new music, but we can’t wait to be back on the road getting rowdy with the fans,” Wetzel, who sold over 275,000 tickets in 2023, shared. “And who knows, we might even have some more new music to sing for y’all at these shows soon…”

The Texas native made the announcement on social media where he shared a video stating that he wouldn’t be touring or releasing an album in 2024. Later in the clip, it was revealed to be an April Fool’s Joke.
