Country music legend Tim McGraw has announced two headline acts in Australia this October.
McGraw will perform at the hugely popular weekend destination, Hope Estate in the Hunter Valley on Friday October 4 and Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on Sunday October 6.
“I have always enjoyed playing for Australian audiences, who are some of the loudest and most loyal music fans in the world,” McGraw said.
“It’s been too long since I’ve been there, and I look forward to seeing you at these special concerts, bringing my full show to fans in the Hunter Valley and Melbourne.”
McGraw is the world’s most played country music artist and has sold more than 50 million records and dominated the charts with 43 worldwide #1 singles since his debut in 1992.
He has won three Grammy Awards, 16 Academy of Country Music Awards, 14 Country Music Association Awards, 11 American Music Awards, three People’s Choice Awards and numerous other honours.
His iconic career achievements include being named the BDS Radio’s Most Played Artist of the Decade for all music genres and having the Most Played Song of the Decade for all music genres.
Joining these headline shows as a special guest will be the popular American country music group, Midland, on their first ever Australian tour.
Their critically acclaimed freshman album, On the Rocks, features 13 tracks with song writing credits from each member, alongside hitmakers Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.
Their debut No. 1 single Drinkin’ Problem, which offers an intentional nod to country music reminiscent of the 1970s and 80s, earned the band their first Grammy Award nominations for Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance.
McGraw’s other guest performer on the bill is seven-time Golden Guitar winner and back-to-back CMC Male Artist of the Year winner Travis Collins.
Collins’ current album (and sixth studio album), Brave & The Broken, debuted at #1 and has spawned two #1 singles, with the new single, Road Warriors, currently climbing the charts.
McGraw will also headline the inaugural C2C Australia festival, where he will be joined by chart-topping, singer-songwriter Kelsea Ballerini (USA), Midland (USA), Drake White & The Big Fire (USA), Australia’s own The McClymonts, Travis Collins, Andrew Swift and more to be announced.
C2C Australia will take over Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena on Saturday September 28 and Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Sunday September 29.
Presale tickets to these two shows will be available via VISA from 10.00am (AEST) on Thursday May 16, before tickets go on sale at 11.00am (AEST) on Friday May 17, 2019 through Ticketek.
