LUKE BRYAN SETS ALL-TIME RECORD FOR A SINGLE DAY COUNTRY CONCERT IN THE HISTORY OF BOSTON'S GILLETTE STADIUM

Superstar Luke Bryan’s concert at Boston’s Gillette Stadium last night set the all-time record for a single day country concert in the history of the field.  Over 60,000 fans attended the concert that also featured special guest Dierks Bentley along with “That’s My Kind of Night Tour” openers Cole Swindell and Lee Brice.

Luke’s “That’s My Kind of Night Tour” continues until the end of October with two additional stadium dates planned this summer.  This Friday, August 15 the tour will play at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia and in Chicago on August 31 at Soldier Field.  In addition, the tour will stop in New York City again for its second sold-out show at Madison Square Garden on September 12 and he’ll be the first country concert to play Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center on September 14. 

Since the debut of his first album in 2007, Luke has sold nearly 6.2 million albums, 23.1 million digital tracks from his four studio albums and placed 10 singles at No. 1.  Luke made recent Billboard chart history when he reached the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart with “Play It Again” and “This Is How We Roll” with Florida Georgia Line claiming the No. 2 spot.  Luke becomes the first artist to ever hold the two top positions since the chart began in 1990. 

Live Nation is the national tour promoter for the “That’s My Kind of Night Tour.”  Miller Lite, Texaco and Cabela’s, the World’s Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, are sponsors of the tour.
