Fire't Up 2020 Tour
Fire't Up 2020 Tour
Country superstar Brantley Gilbert will perform at Fiserv Forum on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2020 as part of his Fire’t Up Tour with Chase Rice, Dylan Scott and Brandon Lay. The announcement comes a few weeks before the Oct. 4 release of his fifth studio album, Fire & Brimstone via The Valory Music Co. Tickets for the show at Milwaukee’s world-class venue will go on sale to the general public on Friday, Sept. 13 at 10 a.m., and can be purchased at FiservForum.com.
Billed as an artist who “never fails to deliver” by American Songwriter, Gilbert is already looking for opportunities to bring the music to his faithful BG Nation with a brand new 2020 tour. Fire’t Up Tour, aptly named after track one on his upcoming 15-song album (all written/co-written by Gilbert), will kick off Jan. 23 in London, Ontario and hit 34 cities across the country and Canada, before concluding May 8 in Colorado.
Gilbert – who identifies as a songwriter first – has invited fellow singer/songwriters to join as tour special guests: Chase Rice who The New York Times praises for his “prime power country” style, known for hits “Eyes On You” and “Lonely If You Are”; Louisiana-native, country singer/songwriter Dylan Scott, whose hits include “My Girl” and “Hooked,” and current single, “Nothing To Do Town”; and a man Rolling Stone calls “a country-rock version of Bruce Springsteen” after last year’s opening slot on Kenny Chesney’s Trip Around The Sun Tour, EMI recording artist Brandon Lay.
“I truly feel like we’re at the point that we can let the music take us where it is meant to go, so with every new album we like to change up our show and make it something that plays to those stories and characters,” Gilbert said. “We’ll of course still do the hits our fans love, but we are looking at this as an opportunity to turn up the heat a bit and give the songs on Fire & Brimstone a chance to really rock.”
Fire & Brimstone features a series of powerhouse collaborations with some of country music’s finest artists such as Lindsay Ell, Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, Jamey Johnson, Lukas Nelson and Colt Ford.
Shortly after the album’s October release, Gilbert will set sail for his second annual Kick It in the Ship cruise. He will be joined by Rice, LANCO, Diamond Rio, Tyler Farr, Danielle Bradbery, Jon Langston, Colt Ford, Tyler Rich, SixForty1, Trea Landon, Sam Grow, Tyler Braden, Brian Davis, Tyler Booth and more as they rock the high seas from Miami to Cozumel in November.
