Toby Keith Announces Dates for 2015 Summer Tour
Toby Keith has revealed the cities and dates for a summer road trek. The Good Times & Pick Up Lines tour will kick off May 29 in Mt. View, Calif.
The tour will run for nearly 30 dates, lasting four months and visiting cities all over North America before wrapping up in Pittsburgh on Sept. 26. It takes its title from the good-time nature of many of Keith's biggest hits, including his current single, "Drunk Americans," which celebrates the notion that despite our sociopolitical differences, Americans can leave their arguments at the door of their local watering hole.
Keith is a perennial live favorite; according to a press release, he's drawn more than a million fans in concert each of the last 14 years. The Good Times & Pick Up Lines tour extends his business relationship with Ford F-Series, who previously sponsored his Shut Up & Hold On tour. In true Toby Keith style, the upcoming shows will help cross-promote his Wild Shot Mezcal, which will be available at an inflatable bar offering signature cocktails on select dates.
The superstar's business empire also includes a partnership in his own record label, Show Dog-Universal, a chain of Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill restaurants and now the first of what he proposes to be a chain of Big Dog Daddy Ice Houses.
Among the highlights of Keith's summer schedule is a headlining gig at the 2015 Taste of Country Music Festival on June 14 at Hunter Mountain, N.Y. The three-day country music and camping festival boasts an all-star lineup that includes fellow headliners Tim McGraw and Keith Urban, along with dozens of country's biggest stars and brightest up-and-coming acts.
