HAGERSTOWN (CelebrityAccess) – 2023, The Year of the Water Rabbit – is shaping up to be a huge one on the live music scene. In Chinese culture, the rabbit symbolizes longevity, peace, and prosperity. The world and the live music scene need all three. Here are the latest tour announcements.
Walker Hayes – The lover of “Applebees on a date night” has announced his Spring 2023 Duck Buck Tour. Ray Fulcher, Breland, and Ingrid Andress have been announced as support on select dates. The tour gets its name from the chorus of the title track of Hayes’ most recent album, Country Stuff The Album, where he says, “I like shooting ducks and bucks.”
The 23-date trek kicks off April 13 in Illinois and will visit Jacksonville, Charlotte, Nashville, and more. Chris Lane and Nicolle Galyon will take the stage with Hayes for a special performance at Red Rocks on May 5.
“I can’t wait to get back out on tour,” says Hayes. “Headlining an arena tour for the first time this past year was a dream come true. The whole family was able to come out, and the road has become our new home away from home. All the fans that have come out or will come out are making this dream a reality. I owe it all to them, and this next tour will be the biggest and best. I don’t take for granted that they spent their hard-earned money on my shows, and I plan to make it well worth it!”
Tickets go on sale Friday (December 16) – visit walkerhayes.com for more details.
