Ruston Kelly Announces Headlining Fall 2019 Brightly Burst Tour Dates
Ruston Kelly is continuing to ride the high of his 2018 release Dying Star with coast-to-coast headlining dates this fall. The rising artist's Brightly Burst Tour will begin in mid-September.
Kelly will kick off his Brightly Burst Tour on Sept. 18 in Chattanooga, Tenn., with about two dozen shows scheduled between then and November. Kelly will play Utah, California, Ohio and more during the trek; a full list of stops is below.
Kelly's Brightly Burst Tour shows will come just over a year after the Sept. 7, 2018, arrival of Kelly's most cerebral, musically rich set of songs to date -- worthy of the tongue-in-cheek label "dirt emo," which he and his fans have adopted to describe his sound. All of the trek's non-festival dates feature opening support from Donovan Woods, the Canadian singer-songwriter behind songs recorded by Tim McGraw ("Portland, Maine") and Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley ("Leaving Nashville").
Tickets for Kelly's Brightly Burst Tour dates will go on sale on Friday (May 10) at 10AM local time. Visit RustonKelly.com for more.
