Brantley Gilbert Adds New The Devil Don’t Sleep Tour Dates
After revealing plans for his 2017 The Devil Don't Sleep Tour -- and a few stops -- back in October, Brantley Gilbert has announced some additional dates for the trek, which is set to begin in early February.
Gilbert's The Devil Don't Sleep Tour will begin on Feb. 2 in Reading, Pa., and run through late April. A total of 26 shows have been announced; a full list of the cities, show dates and venues is below.
“Headlining shows in arenas gives you a lot of room to rock,” says Gilbert in a press release. “The rooms are big enough; the energy really gets going. They push us, we feed them, and the whole thing gets louder and louder 'til it feels like the roof’s gonna come off. But they listen; our fans like when we strip it back, and you can hear 'em sing."
Gilbert's special guests on his 2017 The Devil Don't Sleep Tour will be Tucker Bethard and Luke Combs.
“We try to take all the songs even further live,” Gilbert adds. “Because those folks love the records, we know they’re gonna want it to hit between the eyes when they come out to the show, and we wanna give ’em the night of the year every time we take that stage.”
A few shows on Gilbert's 2017 tour are already on sale, while ticket sales for the others will begin on either Nov. 18 or Dec. 2; check Gilbert's official website for more details. A portion ($1) of every ticket sold through Gilbert's BGNation fan club pre-sales will be donated to the Disabled American Veterans (DAV).
On Jan. 27, Gilbert will release a new studio album, The Devil Don't Sleep; the album will be his most personal project yet, touching on everything from the addictions of his younger years to his marriage in 2015 — all subject matter that’s close to the singer’s heart.
“Decisions are always there to make, and The Devil Don’t Sleep, for me, [means] always just being aware that I am an addict,” Gilbert explains. “I’m a recovering addict, but I’ll always be an addict. Those temptations are there. There’s a lot of roads that go left.”
