Entertainment President Robert Esche says they are 'extremely excited to host Dierks Bentley as the first performing artist at The AUD under new management.'

From the sounds of it, the Riser tour will be the first of many more to come. 'This show will pave the way for a number of other acts to add to the history of a building that has seen some of music's most iconic performers,' says Esche.

Sing along with Bentley's twelve #1 songs, including his recent hit 'Drunk on A Plane.'


It’s going to be tough to top this summer, but every night I get more excited and don’t want this run to end. I’m just living in the moment as much as I can and taking it all in. It really has been the best summer of my life,’ says Bentley.

Randy Houser and Eric Paslay will join Bentley. This won't be Randy Houser's first trip to the area. He was here at our acoustic show a few years ago.

Never been to a Dierks show before? Here's what you can expect and from the looks of it, we'll all be getting a little 'Sideways' as we get 'Drunk on A Plane.' Or am I the only one?
