Oliver Anthony made waves in the industry this year not only for his chart-topping song criticizing politicians, but when he called-off a show because ticket prices were too expensive. Now, he’s set to headline his first-ever tour, hitting cities across the globe.

The 42-date “Out of the Woods Tour” kicks-off on February 1 in Stockholm, Sweden. From there, he’ll appear in cities across Europe like Olso, London, and Dublin before heading to the states for a two-night show at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. He’ll perform at the Albany Civic Center, Cook’s Garage in Texas, Pittsburgh’s Stage AE Outdoors, and MTN Dew Park in Illinois, stopping in small towns of Kentucky, West Virginia, Mississippi, Missouri, Iowa, and Virginia along the way.

To round-out the trek, Anthony will perform at a handful of festivals and state fairs, including Ohio’s Bash on the Bay, the Alaska State Fair, and Alabama’s Rock the South. Fans Down Under are also in for a treat as he’ll appear at Queensland’s CMC Rocks QLD 2024.

The folk-singer just arrived on the scene in 2022, and earlier this year, became an international sensation with his single “Rich Men North of Richmond.” The song, which delves into issues from a working man’s prospective like politics and taxes, has been a hot-topic among both musicians and political commentators. It went viral and soared to No. 1 on the Billboard charts.

Becoming famous wasn’t exactly his goal; Anthony has worked in industrial manufacturing for the last 10 years and said that he’s spent the last decade “hearing the same story,” where “people are so damn tired of being neglected, divided and manipulated.” He just wanted to share this story with the world.

“When the music first exploded, the selfish part of me wanted to just go back in the woods and not come back out for a long while. But I realize that this is a lot bigger than just me now,” Anthony said ahead of the tour. “I’ve been given a wonderful opportunity and I feel compelled to be respectful and diligent with it. I’m appreciative of all of you.”

Anthony has also made headlines for being very transparent about low ticket prices. He was set to perform at the Cotton Eyed Joe in Knoxville on September 27, however, after learning that tickets for the show were going for $90, with meet and greet tickets priced at $200, he cancelled the gig, calling the prices “unacceptable.”

“My shows should never cost more than $40, ideally no more than $25,” Anthony said. “Hell, out of the 4 shows we have currently done, 2 of them have been completely free.”

A general public sale for the “Out of the Woods Tour” began on Friday, November 17. Those who were unable to snag tickets during the general sale can find tickets on MEGASeats (use code “TICKETNEWS” for 10% off), StubHub, or Ticket Club, where readers can earn a free membership with the code “TICKETNEWS.”
