Gary Allan announced his plan to extend his "Get Off on the Pain Tour." The tour will pick up again on September 16 in Salt Lake City, UT and hit more than 30 markets in North American before the end of the year.
The first leg of the tour included sold out shows across the nation including: Los Angeles, Nashville, Chicago, Atlanta, Houston and New Orleans. After a huge first run, Allan and his team couldn't pass up a chance to build upon their successes.
"The first leg of the tour concentrated on intimate venues I'd always wanted to headline, like The Fillmore and The Ryman," said Allan. "On the next leg of the tour we are going to bigger arenas and amphitheaters. It is exciting to take the tour to the next level. It'll be a great night of hard rocking music. The fans are in for a party!"
Always a critics favorite, weeks ago The New York Times raved about Allan's latest album saying "Get off on the Pain"is the year's best country album so farâ€¦treads perilously close to Johnny Cash territory, holy ground Mr. Allan has more than earned the right to."
Randy Houser and Jerrod Niemann have signed on to join Allan on this leg of the tour. Los Angeles Times wrote that Houser adds "grit to the genre" with his debut album ANYTHING GOES, the Mississippi-born, soul-drenched country singer/songwriter became one of the next big artists to emerge in the genre. His sophomore album THEY CALL ME CADILLAC, is due later this year and features current single, "I'm All About It." Houser's "Boots On" music video is nominated for CMT Music Award's USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year. Sea Gayle/ Arista Nashville recording artist Jerrod Niemann is a Kansas native who first made a name for himself as a songwriter, co-writing Garth Brooks' "Good Ride Cowboy," among others. Jerrod's currently hot on the charts with his groove-filled hit single, "Lover, Lover."
