Chris Stapleton has just dumped a bunch of new tour dates for his 2020 All-American Roadshow Tour to go along with some previously-announced appearances and events, and they include an extensive list of openers for the respective dates. Openers include Dwight Yoakam, Elle King, Hank Williams Jr., Kendell Marvel, Margo Price, Nikki Lane, Sheryl Crow, The Marcus King Band and Yola, The Highwomen, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit and The Dirty Knobs with Mike Campbell (Tom Petty).
Stapleton had already previously announced his plans to help open the new Globe Life Park baseball stadium in Arlington, Texas on March 14th with Jamey Johnson, Willie Nelson, and Yola, as well as “A Concert in Kentucky” in Lexington on April 25th with Willie, Yola, and Sheryl Crow that will go to benefit Chris and Morgane Stapleton’s “Outlaw State of Kind Hometown Fund.” The benefit will be the first concert ever held at University of Kentucky’s Kroger Field.
After a few years of struggling to write new songs, Chris Stapleton appears to be coming out of his writers block and has been featuring numerous new songs in his live set last summer, including a song named “Minimum Wage” co-written with the aforementioned Mike Campbell, as well as another called “Bad Side of The Blood.” And then in October, Stapleton revealed a third new acoustic song called “Starting Over.” He’s also been playing a song with concert openers Brothers Osborne called “Get Down to Arkansas.”
Chris Stapleton Fan Club pre-sales will begin on Tuesday, February 4th, and public on sale for the newly-announced dates will start Friday, February 7th.

His openers are looking so good!
Can anyone tell me what to expect for ticket prices? I’m hoping to get tickets on Tuesday morning to the Chicago show if I can compete with the scalpers/bots and everyone else (if everyone could stop announcing this till I get my tickets, that’d be great lol) and am willing to pay for good seats. But I don’t go to a lot of big stadium shows and really don’t know what kind of price to expect.
February 2, 2020 @ 3:17 pm
Is this not legit?
February 2, 2020 @ 6:19 pm
Pretty sure those are scalpers selling tickets they haven’t bought yet.
February 2, 2020 @ 6:45 pm
Yeah I found it odd that Ticketmaster shows nothing yet. Pretty brazen though, and of course google would make them a top hit for some $$.
You can check various other cities for reference on various legit places…

Take your chances on the secondary market. I’ve waited until the gates/doors opened and purchased tickets on my phone for events like this and done well. Most of the time I got tickets below face value and the one time I paid a small fortune it was for great seats to see Tom Petty. I let events like this got straight to the secondary market.

Completely an overrated bore-fest. Does anyone besides the “country” radio crowd even listen to him anymore? Good for him for taking out some good openers though.
February 2, 2020 @ 6:08 pm
Not sure the country radio crowd was ever too keen on Stapleton. Someone’s keen on him though. He was the best selling country artist of the last decade, and didn’t even get started until 2015.

Yes. Driven by his Timberlake national TV performance. And his support from the awards shows and “country” radio acceptance. His blowing up is the DEFINITION of success via being a chosen one of the Nashville machine.
February 2, 2020 @ 9:55 pm
Radio was not a driver behind Chris Stapleton at all. They ignored him despite his success until they couldn’t ignore him any more, and started playing his singles reluctantly two years after he’d blown up. You don’t like Stapleton, I respect that. But his rise was not some prefabricated thing built from radio.

Timing semantics. The Timberlake performance and subsequent awards shows blew him up initially. Radio followed. That sequence is irrelevant.
He’s now fat and lazy in his output (lack of), riding the coattails of a ripped off Etta James song. He also leaves a ton to be desired in the songs he actually writes himself. Where am I wrong?
February 2, 2020 @ 6:32 pm
OOps, I guess the secrets out that I’m not cool. I like him.
I’ll admit though that I wouldn’t bother except that Jason Isbell and the Highwomen are opening. And I’ll add that I think a lot of these shows would be even better if the lineup were reversed.
I’ve seen him before though, with Alabama Shakes, and I really enjoyed it. But I also drive a minivan, so I guess you got your answer lol.

Don’t be hating on minivans! It’s not that he isn’t ok, it’s just that it’s a shame that he’s the darling that Nashville chose to back as their answer to appease the fact that everything else they pump up is garbage. He’s also highly overrated. It’s also lame that he’s milking this success so long while not putting out any new material. Also, he’s ruined the duster coat, and should be sued by the estate or Etta James. But that’s all just one guy’s opinion!

I don’t feel as strongly as you—except about the Etta James issue.
February 2, 2020 @ 11:28 pm
I am so proud of Chris Stapleton. He never forgot his hometown fas. The donations he made to the Football program and To the Special Olympics . And now doing the concert on n Lexington.. I can’t wait. Too bad not.all guys look that good. Pele can put him down but my question is where they at when the floor hit Johnson county and people were killed and homes got washed away . Chris gave a free concert and helped more than people knows. So yes it goes to show we take care of our own. Thanks Chris

Man, what’s with all the negative sentiments on Chris?
February 4, 2020 @ 11:33 am
Unfortunately it looks like they didn’t go as far as they could have in terms of preventing scalping (IDs only checked at Will Call instead of entry as far as I can tell. You can resell tickets and meet buyers onsite).
The bots were rejoicing, at least for the show I checked.
