The St. Louis Cardinals are proud to announce two-time Country Music Association (CMA) and Academy of Country Music (ACM) Entertainer of the Year award winner Luke Bryan will perform at Busch Stadium on Saturday, August 25. It will be the 10th stop on his newly announced What Makes You Country XL Stadium Tour which will visit 13 major stadiums across North America. Bryan will be joined in concert by Sam Hunt, Jon Pardi, Morgan Wallen and DJ Rock.
Ticket prices and on-sale dates will be announced at a later time. This marks the first time that Busch Stadium III will host back-to-back concerts as Def Leppard and Journey will perform on Friday, August 24.
“We are excited to welcome Luke Bryan and Sam Hunt to Busch Stadium this summer,” said Vicki Bryant, Cardinals Vice President of Event Services & Merchandising. “We are thrilled to host music fans around the region to a weekend of back-to-back concerts featuring classic rock and great country music.”
Bryan’s What Makes You Country Tour is named after his recently released album that debuted at #1 on both the Billboard Top 200 and Top Country Albums charts. It became his third consecutive album to debut at #1 on the Top 200 and his fifth #1 debut on the Top Country Albums chart. The 13-city stadium tour launches on the heels of Luke’s judging duties on American Idol, premiering March 11 for its first season on ABC.
