Luke Bryan Scores Best Touring Year of His Career
This year has been a record-breaking one for Luke Bryan, with 1.7 million fans showing up for his concerts in 2014.
Bryan recently wrapped up his That's My Kind of Night Tour, which was attended by 1.2 million fans in 77 cities. Add in his two Spring Break concerts in Panama City Beach, Fla., an eight-city Farm Tour and headlining appearances at fairs and festivals, and the number reaches 1.7 million -- a career best for Bryan.
“We have enjoyed seizing the moments every day on this tour,” he says. “We’ve played all types of shows this year. It’s just as exciting to play for smaller-capacity crowds during a two-day run in the very northern point of Canada as it is to [play for] 60,000 screaming fans at the stadium shows, or for the beach crowds at Spring Break, or to the first-time fan who may have never been to a concert until the Farm Tour came to their small, rural community.
"I am so grateful to everyone on my team, from my road crew to my fans, that have made this year so amazing!" Bryan adds. "I’m having the time of my life.”
Bryan played four sold-out stadium shows on tour and also set the all-time country record for tickets sold at Pittsburgh's Heinz Field and Solder Field in Chicago, Ill.
Bryan will kick off the third leg of the That's My Kind of Night Tour in February, with Randy Houser and Dustin Lynch as special guests. He's also set to headline the 2015 C2C Country to Country Festival in Europe with Lady Antebellum.
