Get ready to shake it! Newly crowned Academy of Country Music “Entertainer of the Year” Luke Bryan has announced that he will be heading back out on tour following a delay from last year’s scheduled events that were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Promoting his new album Born Here Live Here Die Here, Bryan will be traveling throughout the United States this summer and fall with the Proud to Be Right Here Tour. It will begin in Syracuse, NY, in July and wrap in San Bernardino, CA, in October. While fans are obviously excited to get back to concert venues, no one is more excited than Bryan.

“I can’t believe this moment is nearly here when we get to hop on the tour bus and roll into towns across America and get back to doing what we do best. What we live to do,” says Bryan.

He will also be joined by special guests Dylan ScottCaylee Hammack, and Runaway June along with DJ Rock.

This news comes just after his Crash My Playa 2022 concert sold out due to record-breaking demand. The event has been running for seven years and this was the fastest sell-out it has ever had.

“There is nothing more gratifying about writing and recording music than getting to play it live for the fans,” the American Idol judge said. “There’s several songs off my new album that I’ve never performed live.”

Bryan recently missed the ACM Awards and the first live episode of American Idol due to contracting COVID-19. After his speedy recovery, he is back on the show.

The Proud to Be Right Here Tour is sponsored by Lipton Iced Tea with Live Nation being the official promoter.

Those who had tickets to a previous concert date will have those tickets honored. New concert date tickets will go on sale to the public beginning Friday, April 30.
