DIERKS BENTLEY “DELIVERED” FOR MORE THAN 48,000 FANS DESPITE WEATHER DURING SUMMER LAUNCH OF 2019 BURNING MAN TOUR

Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley relished in the energy of summer tour with more than 48,000 fans this weekend during the launch of his 2019 BURNING MAN TOUR. Capacity crowds were a common occurrence during the three-night run that featured special guests Jon Pardi, Tenille Townes and the Hot Country Knights as fans were on their feet for more than four hours. During the first night in Cincinnati, OH, (5/30) "Bentley and his band delivered a hit-packed performance" (Cincinnati Enquirer) that didn’t let up the following night for Indianapolis, IN (5/31) as he also "focused on stirring, communal moments” with his “unforgettable fire” (Indy Star). In St. Louis, MO on Saturday (6/1), Bentley relayed to fans over a megaphone that severe storms caused a power outage and promised to pick the show back up the following night. Ironically this was the third year in a row Bentley's headlining run battled weather in the city. For a sneak peak of what to expect this summer clickhere
 
"Getting back out on the road is something the guys and I have been looking forward to for months, and the fans set the bar insanely high this weekend,” Bentley said. "The weather couldn’t even stop us for having the best first weekend I can remember in my career. I can already tell this summer with Pardi and Tenielle is going to be one we never forget."
 
Bentley will carry over "his crowd-pleasing tunes" (Nashville Scene) throughout Nashville, TN this week with "can't-miss CMA Fest events" (USA Today) including performances at Marty Stuart’s Late Night Jam (6/5), the HGTV Lodge (6/8) and his headlining set at Nissan Stadium on Saturday (6/8). Afterwards, “the show that delivers" (Country Aircheck) will pick-up in Brandon, MS (6/13) and roll through September with special guests Jon Pardi, Tenille Townes and the Hot Country Knights, while its final weekend will include Caylee Hammack.
