Devil Don’t Sleep Tour with special guests Tyler Farr and Luke CombsAug 13 , 2017 DTE Energy Music Theatre
Brantley Gilbert brings his Devil Don’t Sleep Tour with special guests Tyler Farr and Luke Combs to DTE Energy Music Theatre on Sunday, August 13 at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets go on sale Friday, March 24 at Noon at Livenation.com, The Palace Ticket Store and all Ticketmaster locations. Tickets may be also charged by phone to American Express, Discover, Visa and MasterCard by calling 800.745.3000.
As Brantley Gilbert kicks plans for the summer leg of his The Devil Don’t Sleep Tour, the working class kid from Jefferson, Georgia wants to bring some of his most hardcore, hard-working fans “into the house” for his summer’s party. So rather than merely making fan friendly seats available on the lawn, the back-to-back platinum songwriter’s carving out a chunk of seats under the pavilion – and making them available for just $20.*
“Look I love the lawn and how much fun everybody has up there,” the man who won the American Music Award for Favorite Album with Just Who I Am acknowledges, “but I also know some of my most hardcore fans come for the music. They want to be under the roof, where they can really see and hear the show. I hate that it’s always impossible for the folks in the BG Nation, who’re trying to make ends meet, to get into those seats – so we’re teaming with Live Nation to create a Working Class ticket.
“I know times can be tight, and no matter what you’ve got going on, if you wanna come hear the show, we’ve got you covered.”
Tickets for these shows are available on a first-come, first-sold basis. Once they’re gone, they’re done. But for those fans who want to really see the action, and truly hear the band, this is a best of both worlds proposition.
The 26-date summer leg of the Devil Don’t Sleep Tour is a mixture of festivals, fairs and amphitheaters, mixing up the concert experience for the fans. For the man focused on Rust Belt, Heartland, the South and East Coast, the chance to not just take his hard-hitting show outside, but make it drive even harder is a given. The chance to bring the hardest core fans under the pavilion is something he’s been working on for months – and now he can let people know he’s able to bring everybody inside who wants to come.
“These shows in the arenas are so loud and so wild,” says the songwriter whose penned six #1s, including the CMA Song of the Year nominee “Dirt Road Anthem,” of the road. “You almost can’t hold that energy in the building, but come summer – when we take it outside – it’s a whole other kind of deal when we get outside with the BG Nation.”
With “The Weekend” cresting the Top 10, and the arena portion of The Devil Don’t Sleep Tour rocking, this is one more way for the man who’s hit #1 with “Country Music Be Country Wide,” “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do,” “Bottoms Up” and “One Hell of an Amen” – plus writing “My Kind of Party” and the CMA Song of the Year nominee “Dirt Road Anthem” – to bring the fans closer to him.
This year’s show – with new music from his #1 all-genre Top 200 Selling Albums The Devil Don’t Sleep – has been striking a chord with his already passionate fanbase. The Reading Eagle wrote of opening night, “far from an outlier; Gilbert stuck his microphone out for audience participation in nearly every song, and they were happy to oblige. This wasn't music for thinking, it was music for escaping” and touring industry trade Pollstar echoed, “on a brief instrumental honkytonk interlude that allowed the five musicians backing Gilbert to show off their chops, the music was heavily country. But for much of the show, it was an amalgam of styles Gilbert grew up listening to, incorporating crunchy guitars, drum machines, even some rapped verses.”
Quietly selling back-to-back platinum with Halfway To Heaven and Just As I Am, Jefferson, Georgia’s Brantley Gilbert is a different kind of heavy metal force reckon with: a songwriter who taps into the gut of the outlier, the roughneck, the downhome and the downtrodden by rocking his country hard and writing songs torn straight from their lives.
Last winter’s successful BlackOut arena tour and summer’s Take It Outside tour, climaxing in two sold-out in-advance shows at Colorado’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater proved Gilbert a live force to be reckoned with. Devil Don’t Sleep Tour solidifies his reputation as one of America’s hardest-hitting country hybrids. As winter leg continues rocking hard, get ready for the summer leg – featuring Tyler Farr and Luke Combs – to be coming where the people work hard and their music is part of how they do it.
