Darius Rucker Puts New Summer Tour Dates on the Books, With an Array of Special Guests
Darius Rucker is filling out his summer plans, with help from some of Nashville's hottest up-and-comers. On Monday (April 18), he more than doubled the shows he's got planned in the months ahead, adding stops across the U.S. and in Canada.
"My Boy" breakout star Elvie Shane is accompanying Rucker for several dates, and Tyler Booth will join him for several more. Larry Fleet, Tenille Townes, Caylee Hammack, Ryan Hurd, Jameson Rodgers and Daves Highway are all also among the opening acts who will split the opening slot for Rucker's upcoming shows.
Rucker's headlining sets begin June 23 with a stop in Cleveland, Ohio, but he's got a few exciting dates on the books before then, too. June 6 marks his 13th annual "Darius & Friends" benefit concert, a show at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium that unofficially kicks off CMA Fest week each year and serves as a fundraiser for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
After Darius & Friends, Rucker's sticking around Nashville just a little bit longer, as he's a performer at this year's CMA Fest on the big stage at Nissan Stadium. He'll then head across the river to Music City's Bridgestone Arena on June 18 for his supporting slot on Brooks & Dunn's 2022 Reboot Tour.
Next up, the newly-announced shows will kick off. Tickets for most of those dates go on sale April 22, though two early September shows won't go on sale until May 6, and one July stop in Memphis, Tenn. still list venue and ticketing information as TBA.
