Luke Bryan - Dirt Road Diaries Tour Tulsa, OK

TULSA – Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, May 17 for Luke Bryan’s “Dirt Road Diaries Tour” fall stop at the BOK Center.

The tour, featuring duos Thompson Square, which features Miami, OK, native Keifer Thompson and his wife Shawna, and Florida Georgia Line, which consists of Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, will play Saturday, Sept. 14 at the Tulsa arena.

Tickets for the show are priced at $27.50 and $52, according to a news release. They will be available starting May 17 online at www.bokcenter.com, Arby’s Box Office, all Tickets.com outlets, or by calling (866) 7-BOKCTR.

Bryan’s cache as a seasoned performer has long been recognized by his growing legion of fans and has recently captured the attention of the music community. His ability to draw great crowds to his concerts became evident earlier this year as it was announced that the first leg of shows on his headline tour, the “Dirt Road Diaries Tour,” all sold-out. The tour has been extended with a second leg including the Tulsa concert.

“I feel like I have waited a lifetime to take my own show on the road,” Bryan said in the news release. “The band and I have a lot of exciting things in store for the fans and are eager to get it started!”

Bryan’s recent Academy of Country Music Award wins for Entertainer of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year (“Only Way I Know” with Eric Church and Jason Aldean), along with his first-time ACM hosting duty with Oklahoma superstar Blake Shelton, are just a few of the career highlights the Georgia native has enjoyed lately. Additional accolades include multiplatinum albums sales, back-to-back No. 1 singles and his first No. 1 album debut with “Spring Break…Here To Party.” His spring break shows in Panama City Beach, Fla., back in March brought in 120,000 fans during the two-day concert event, and his performance at the Houston Rodeo was the second largest attendance in the rodeo’s history with 75,000 fans.

His last studio album, “tailgates & tanlines¸” produced three back-to-back platinum singles, became a Top 10 album of 2012 and sold 7 million tracks. He has placed a total of six career singles at No. 1 and was named the No. 1 Artist of 2012 and No. 1 Male Artist of 2012 by Country Aircheck. Billboard named “tailgates & tanlines” the No. 2 Country Album and the No. 3 Country Artist Album of 2012 and claimed Bryan as the No. 3 Top Country Artist of the Year. Also in 2012, he took home 11 music awards, including a record nine wins at the American Country Awards as well as his first American Music Award.
