Newly crowned 2021 ACM Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan, who has performed for more than 12 million fans in his past headline tours, is happy to announce he will launch his “Proud To Be Right Here Tour” on July 8 in Syracuse. On Aug 14, the show stops at Darien Center for a performance at the Darien Lake Amphitheater.
Special guests on the tour include Dylan Scott on all dates except July 8-18; Caylee Hammack on all dates through Aug. 14; Runaway June on all dates beginning Aug. 19; and DJ Rock on all dates.
“There is nothing more gratifying about writing and recording music than getting to play it live for the fans. There’s several songs off my new album that I’ve never performed live,” Bryan said. “I can’t believe this moment is nearly here when we get to hop on the tour bus and roll into towns across America and get back to doing what we do best. What we live to do!”
New concert dates on the schedule will be available for presale to Bryan’s fan club, the Nut House, on Tuesday, April 27, and on sale to the public beginning Friday, April 30, at 10 a.m. local time at www.lukebryan.com. Tickets previously purchased will be honored on the newly reschedule dates.

The “Proud To Be Right Here” Tour announcement comes following news of Bryan’s “Crash My Playa 2022” concert vacation event, set for Jan. 19-22. That gig sold-out due to record-breaking demand from returning event alumni and Bryan’s fans through presale access. The sell-out is the event’s fastest in its seven-year history.
Bryan wrapped 2020 as Billboard’s Top Country Artist of the 2010s by reigning on its charts with 11 No. 1s on the Hot Country Songs chart and nine No. 1s on the top country albums chart during the past decade. Since his debut in 2009, Bryan has garnered 26 No. 1 hits and has more RIAA-certified digital singles than any other country artist with 54.5 million. He has also tallied 14.6 billion streams, 12.5 million albums sold, four Platinum albums, two four-times-Platinum albums, seven RIAA-certified albums, 22 Platinum singles and 12 multi-Platinum singles. Bryan’s seven headline concert tours have played for 12 million fans, including 36 stadium concerts, 11 “Farm Tours,” six years of spring break shows and six sold-out Crash My Playa concert events.
Bryan also is a judge on ABC’s “American Idol.”
