Current three-time CMA nominee Dierks Bentley announced today that his 2019 BURNING MAN TOUR will kick off on January 17th in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada with special guests Jon Pardi, Tenille Townes and Hot Country Knights. Bentley is known to “pull out all the stops, not quitting until the crowd is whipped into a frothy frenzy” (On Milwaukee) and will continue to do so in 2019 with the run named after his “most affecting song” (Rolling Stone) and hit single “Burning Man” feat. Brothers Osborne.
Citi® cardmembers will have access to purchase pre-sale tickets beginning October 31st through Citi’s Private Pass® program. For complete pre-sale details visit www.citiprivatepass.com. Initial public on-sales are scheduled for Friday, November 2nd beginning at 10:00a local time via www.dierks.com and www.livenation.com, where additional dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
“I talked to Jon Pardi last April about the idea of going back on the road together one last time, and I am so happy that I can finally let our fans in on this,” said Bentley. “I’m still coming off the high of playing Hollywood Bowl and the last tour but knowing that this Burning Man Tour with Pardi was out there waiting has been so awesome. We cannot wait to get back on the road!”
Bentley adds, “Who we bring with us on tour is so important to the band, crew and me and the addition of Tenille Townes is something we are all stoked about. Our hardcore fans are aware of the 90s country cover band, the Hot Country Knights, who have been following us around and opening shows. They talked us into having them on the actual billing for this tour…hope their van has snow tires for Canada!”
Dierks will make notable stops throughout the country including his return to Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena after making a sold-out headlining debut in 2016.

Dierks Bentley (keeping things interesting with his live show) OC: …it growing. :19
“I love headlining. I love knowing that we get to close the show down. I love that people come out to tailgate to my songs and write my name on the side of their windows and hold posters up during the show. It’s a great feeling for me and the guys in the band. It’s a great accomplishment. It’s also a journey, this journey. We have to keep moving forward and doing different things to keep this fun for us and keep it growing.”
