Midland Announces 2018 'Electric Rodeo Tour' Dates


The best-dressed boys in contemporary country aren't planning on slowing down their ambitious touring schedule yet. Midland have tacked on an eight-date headlining tour, dubbed the 2018 Electric Rodeo Tour, starting in Tuscon, Ariz. in late October and ending in Springfield, Ill. in mid-December.

This year, the trio of Texans already played Bonnaroo, a sold-out show at Billy Bob's Texas in Fort Worth and jetted across the U.S. with an opening slot on Little Big Town's The Breakers Tour. After taking on the LBT tour that ran from February to April, they wasted no time in joining Thomas Rhett's Life Changes Tour.

A couple of the dates on Rhett's tour coincide with the Electric Rodeo Tour, but fans should easily be able to discern which dates they'll catch a full, headling set in a more intimate venue versus a short opening act set in the large arenas Rhett has planned. Tickets for the new dates will go on sale June 22 at 10 a.m. CST through Ticketmaster. Midland will also take on an international stint of the tour, playing several dates in the U.K. in late November and early December.
