Toby Keith Announces Hammer Down Under Tour
Next March, Toby Keith will embark on the Hammer Down Under Tour, his first tour in Australia.
The singer made the announcement in a YouTube video on Tuesday (Sept. 24). Famous for his rowdy party songs and high-energy performances, it’s surprising that this will be Keith’s first trip down under.
"The Outlaws of country music have always been huge with Aussie fans,” Rob Potts, CEO of Entertainment Edge in Australia, says in a press release. “This country started out as a convict settlement, so we know why the fans are so excited about Toby's first ever tour here. They love his larrikin outlaw attitude and the fact that he doesn't take himself too seriously.”
“We're super excited to have [Keith] touring in March and know the fans will go wild when he rolls out his incredible catalogue of hits,” Potts adds. “It's also terrific to welcome back Eli Young Band and to have Kellie Pickler on her first visit down under."
Keith will be playing shows with the Eli Young Band and Pickler in arenas throughout the country, and he will also be headlining the 2014 CMC Rocks the Hunter festival during the tour.
