Dierks Bentley has announced the second leg of his Riser Tour, and he tells Cody he’s going all out!
The 20-city run begins Oct. 2nd in Stockton, California and runs through the end of the year.
When the country superstar first launched the Riser Tour, he revealed exclusively to Cody how he spared no expense for this trek.
“We went big on the production,” he says. “I got a call from my business manager the other day saying, ‘You do know how much this is costing to put out?’ And I’m like, ‘I know but this is my first chance to headline amphitheaters.’ I’m going in like this is my last year ever of doing it.”
Randy Houser and Eric Paslay will open date for the tour’s U.S. dates.
Randy and Canadian artist Tim Hicks will open shows on the Canadian leg of the tour.
