Critically acclaimed for his “silky croon” (Entertainment Weekly) and “stomping tunes” (People), it’s no surprise that country star Brett Eldredge sold out six of the first batch of announced dates on his 2018 The Long Way Tour within hours. After going on sale last Friday, tickets in New York, Boston, Kansas City, Indianapolis, Hampton Beach and Bethlehem went quickly to fans who had long anticipated the Platinum-selling entertainer’s first-ever headlining tour.
“I continue to be blown away by fans and how they are showing up for the tour,” said Eldredge. “It’s been a lifelong dream to have a headlining tour, and I can’t wait to get on that stage! Is it April yet?!”
Tickets for Eldredge’s Hammerstein Ballroom date came on heels of his successful Christmas performance at Irving Plaza – earning him back-to-back sold-out shows at two of New York City’s most popular venues. The Long Way Tour will kick off on April 5 in Idaho and features breakout artist Devin Dawson as well as country newcomer Jillian Jacqueline. As the remaining five dates near capacity, Eldredge readies to wow audiences all across the nation for both his own headlining shows and on Blake Shelton’s Country Music Freaks Tour in 2018.
Yesterday Eldredge flexed his performance muscles singing his latest hit single “The Long Way” on Good Morning America. The tune is currently approaching Top 20 at country radio and boasts more than 27 million streams. With an eight-piece band in tow, Eldredge also treated the audience to a special rendition of his Christmas tune “Glow,” available to view on ABC.com. Over the past month, the holiday-loving singer has brought his own style of seasonal spirit to CMA Country Christmas, A Very Pentatonix Christmas Special and NBC’s Christmas in Rockefeller Center, with still more performances to share the coming weeks.
