Thomas Rhett announces summer Center Point Road Tour

Thomas Rhett Announces Center Point Road Tour

Thomas Rhett is going from Center Point Road to all over the map. The country star announced dates for his Center Point Road Tour, which will invade dozens of North American amphitheaters.

The trek gets underway May 29 with a two-night stint in Gilford, New Hampshire. From there, Rhett will make his way cross country and back, stopping in Tampa, St. Louis, Phoenix, Sacramento and more. He’ll close the three-month long outing in Bristow, Virginia on August 29. Special guests Cole Swindell and HARDY are slated to join in support.

The Center Point Road Tour kicks off one year after the release of Rhett’s personal fourth album of the same name. Center Point Road became his second consecutive No. 1 album, and earned the 29-year-old a pair of No. 1 singles with “Look What God Gave Her” and “Remember You Young.” It most recently earned Rhett a Grammy nomination for Best Country Album.

2020 will be a busy one for the singer. In addition to the summer tour, fans can catch him headlining Stagecoach Festival in April and the inaugural Trailblazer Festival in June. He is also going to be a father yet again and is expecting his third daughter with wife Lauren Akins in early 2020.

CMA Fest, Coachella among 2019's best-selling music festivals

CMA Fest, Coachella Among Year’s Best-Selling Music Festivals

Music enthusiasts coast to coast flocked to these large-scale gatherings for their fix, but which ones were the best-selling music festivals of 2019?

Continuing its reign yet again is 2018’s best-seller CMA Fest. The Nashville bash raked in the big bucks this year with its usual full slate of superstar country artists. Thomas Rhett, Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Dan + Shay, Maren Morris and Luke Combs were among the festival’s many performers at Nissan Stadium, which fans easily filled throughout its four-day run. CMA Fest topped the rest in overall sales, and nabbed an in-demand average ticket price of just over $240.

Just trailing CMA Fest is perennial pop culture phenomenon Coachella. The 2019 edition featured Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino and Tame Impala headlining its two weekends. Ticket prices spiked to a high of $650 for three-day admission. That figure was edged a week later by Coachella successor Stagecoach, which pulled just under $700 per ticket.

Texas was well-represented, with Dallas’ Crossroads Guitar Festival coming in at No. 4, followed by Austin City Limits and Austin’s iHeartRadio Country Festival at No. 5 and 10, respectively. Miami and New Orleans-based festivals appeared twice, while traveling festivals like Rolling Loud, Willie Nelson’s Outlaw Music Festival and the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball made the list as well.

See the Top 20 best-selling music festivals of 2019 below.

New York, Las Vegas emerge as top entertainment cities of 2019

New York, Las Vegas Emerge as Top Entertainment Cities of 2019

New York stands alone as the runaway winner of the entertainment business. The Big Apple leads the year’s top entertainment cities in the country, based on ticket sales for all local events. New York’s strong sports environment and concert scene always keep it a fierce market within the ticketing industry. Broadway productions only heighten metropolitan entertainment and earns New York nearly double the ticket sales of the next-highest earning market of Las Vegas.

Sin City, despite having only one professional sports team, rakes in its fair share of ticket sales from endless concert residencies, high-profile boxing and MMA fights, and a variety of other events. Las Vegas also hosts several major music festivals, including the iHeartRadio Music Festival and Life Is Beautiful Festival which help boost its yearly ranking.

Thriving sports and music markets Los Angeles and Chicago closely followed, while Atlanta notched the fifth spot after hosting the year’s most sought-after event: Super Bowl LIII. Boston, Houston and Dallas scored consecutive spots in the bottom half of the Top 10 while Kansas City managed to eek in thanks to the phenomenal sales dominance of the NFL’s Chiefs. Versatile Nashville – host of the year’s best-selling music festival CMA Fest – rounds out the list.
