Luke Combs Ready to “Bat Cleanup” on First Headlining Arena Tour

After hitting the road as part of Brantley Gilbert’s The Devil Don’t Sleep Tour in 2017 and Jason Alean’s High Noon Neon Tour in 2018, Luke Combs will embark on his first headlining arena tour in 2019.

Luke’s Beer Never Broke My Heart Tour will kick off on Jan. 31 in Birmingham, Ala., with more than 25 stops through May 12. As Luke told Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown, headlining his first arena tour is “gonna be a big change” from supporting artists like Jason or Brantley.

“It’s different than anything that we’ve ever done,” says Luke. “You know, we’ve played the arenas, and I compared it to . . . I guess, it’s kind of like playing baseball where if we were up to bat and if we missed or struck out, you know, we had a Brantley Gilbert or a Jason Aldean over the last couple of years to come in and bat cleanup for us if we couldn’t get it done. We don’t have that luxury coming up, so I think it’s gonna be a big change. We’re adding a lot of guys to our crew. We’re adding a keyboard player to the band, which will be really interesting. We’re gonna have all the staging and all that crazy stuff, so I’m anxious to see how that turns out, and I think it’ll be really great.”

Lanco and Jameson Rodgers will serve as support on Luke’s tour.
