Dierks Bentley Says 'What the Hell,' Adds Summer Tour Dates

Dierks Bentley is extending his 2017 What the Hell Tour.

After kicking off the tour in Dayton, Oh., on Thursday, the country star announced he'd be adding a second leg to the trek with more than two dozen tour dates. Bentley will be out on the road through the summer, performing in support of his eighth studio album, Black.

The singer was inspired to start mapping out his summer stops after an exhilarating opening night of his 2017 tour.

"The show last night - and even just being with Cole [Swindell] and [Jon] Pardi hanging off stage the last few days - has me so pumped for the rest of this year," Bentley said in a statement. "There's not a cooler feeling in the world than the love that country music fans pour out every night when you're laying it all out on the stage. They are having the time of their lives, and we're all just getting lost in it together. I can't wait to bring that back to Nashville tomorrow night and celebrate with all our friends and family at home. The guys and I are never going to forget this tour and these fans and all the people helping us live out our dreams every night."
