Grand Rapids – The best-selling duo of all time, Brooks & Dunn, are returning to arenas, announcing their REBOOT 2022 TOUR today. Kicking off in Evansville, IN on May 5, the nationwide tour will see the duo hit some cities and venues for the first time in over a decade, and some in over 20 years. The tour will visit Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids on Friday, May 6 at 7 PM. Brooks & Dunn has curated a stacked lineup across the run with openers Jon Pardi and Tyler Booth joining them on the Grand Rapids date. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 4 at 10 AM at VanAndelArena.com. Live Nation is the tour promoter.
"Last year we fired up the buses and 'let it roll’ again,” shared Kix Brooks. “Thanks for reminding us how you guys can shake every stage we walk on to…damn, it feels good to be back with ya! Bring it! We’ll meet you there!”
"It is our full intent to step onto the stage each night and throw down like the wildest honky tonk you’ve never been to…yet,” added Ronnie Dunn. "Don’t be concerned about the mess left afterwards, y’all just enjoy yourselves and we’ll worry about that later."
With 20 No. 1 hits stretching back to 1991, two GRAMMY awards, dozens of ACM and CMA honors and a discography counting more album sales than any duo in history – regardless of genre – Brooks & Dunn’s influence on today’s country has never been in question. Hits like “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” “My Maria” and “Believe” have propelled the duo to more than 30 million albums sold, with the New York Times heralding "together they helped drive the power-country era of the early-to-mid 1990s and continued to benefit from the sea change in the genre they helped initiate right through their most recent albums.” Their original “Merle Haggard meets The Rolling Stones” vibe made them progressive stars in their own right. The duo’s recently released collaboration project REBOOT debuted at No. One on Billboard’s Top Country Albums. The impressive feat marks the first time the duo has topped the album charts since 2009 while simultaneously earning the duo their 10th Billboard 200 Top 10 album, the most of any country duo or group in the chart’s history. In 2019 the duo was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in the “Modern Era Artist” category. In 2021 Brooks & Dunn undertook their first nationwide tour in ten years with their anticipated The REBOOT 2021 TOUR, as well as wrapped their hugely successful and the longest-running country residency in Las Vegas, “REBA, BROOKS & DUNN: Together in Vegas.” For more
