Former American Idol winner Scotty McCreery will launch his first headlining tour, the Weekend Roadtrip Tour 2013, beginning on Feb. 14 at Sands Event Center in Bethlehem, Pa. The 25-city tour will go through May. Currently, 16 show dates have been announced, with more to come.
“I’ve been lucky enough to play a lot of great cities over the last year with Brad Paisley and some other great country artists,” explains McCreery. “This time I get to play some new places with a show that’s all my own. I can’t wait for my fans to see what we’ve lined up for them on my Weekend Roadtrip Tour 2013.”
McCreery says the tour’s title was born from the singer and college student’s day-to-day experiences. “Right now, I’m balancing my music career with my second semester at North Carolina State University. I go to school early in the week and get to play my music every weekend. So, calling this tour the Weekend Roadtrip Tour just made sense. Plus, what college student doesn’t love a good roadtrip?”
The tour will be sponsored by humanitarian organization World Vision.
