After their successful 2009 trek, country stars and label mates Toby Keith and Trace Adkins are no strangers to touring together. This summer, they’ll launch their latest joint venture in support of Keith’s October 2009 record, “American Ride.”
The American Ride Tour officially launches June 19 at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ, and continues through September 25 in Boston, MA. The tour is scheduled to hit 39 markets across the United States and Canada, but most venues on the itinerary have not been announced yet.
Among the few dates that have been fully revealed, highlights include performances on August 6 at Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, CA; August 21 at Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ; September 4 at Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, FL; and September 24 at Comcast Theatre in Hartford, CT.
The calendar also includes gig stops on July 17 in St. Louis, MO; July 25 in Vancouver, BC; August 8 in Phoenix, AZ; August 29 in Detroit, MI; September 9 in Toronto, ON; and September 18 in Chicago, IL.
More venue announcements and information on ticket onsales are forthcoming. Toby Keith’s official Web site will make updates as more details are released.
Keith released his 13th studio album, “American Ride,” in October 2009 to a positive critical response and a strong commercial showing. The record debuted at the top of the country charts and snagged a respectable No. 3 spot on the Billboard 200.
Adkins is currently co-headlining the Shine All Night Tour with Martina McBride. The country crooners launched their trek in November 2009 and will stay on the road together through the end of March.
Keith and Adkins last toured together on summer 2009’s America’s Toughest Tour. That venture totaled more than 30 dates and began, similarly to the upcoming run, at the PNC Bank Arts Center in mid-June.
