Ben Burgess will serve as a special guest. Presale tickets for the tour are available starting Wednesday, July 20 at 10AM, with all tickets available Friday, July 22 at 10AM at VanAndelArena.com.
Outright genre-bending artist/songwriter Jelly Roll has quietly been building a remarkable career, from being under the radar and on his own terms to earning more than a Billion cumulative streams to date and counting. Since his days selling his mix tapes out of the trunk of his car, Jelly Roll has constantly been releasing new music (more than 24 albums), touring relentlessly, consistently topping various iTunes charts, engaging a rabid fanbase and creating videos that have amassed a staggering billion plus views on YouTube. He pairs deeply personal lyrics with music that blends Old-school Rap, Classic Rock, Country and Soul to create music that is therapeutic, raw and tackles the heaviness in life.
His 2020 single “Save Me”—a confessional, vulnerable expression of self-doubt set the stage for his new season of life and took him to new heights, with more than 65 million views on YouTube and Gold certification from the RIAA. Jelly’s newest album, Ballads of the Broken, features ten tracks including the #1 Active Rock hit, “Dead Man Walking” as well as, “Son of a Sinner”, which is currently climbing the country charts. With his first No. 1 single – the multi-week chart-topping “Dead Man Walking” and current Top 20 single “Son of a Sinner” nearing the Top 20 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, the Nashville native is the first artist to top the Active Rock charts while having a Top 30 single at Country Radio with his first song chart debut on each (Billboard).
The album shows Jelly Roll’s growth as an artist and man, drawing from his personal experiences to tell the story of a man who has been through the ringer and isn’t afraid to share his raw truth. Jelly Roll recently made his national television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he performed his Top 20 single, “Son Of A Sinner” and three additional songs for the show’s livestream, including his viral hit “Save Me” and multi-week #1 hit, “Dead Man Walking.” Watch his performance on Kimmel here.
Texas-born, singer, songwriter, guitarist, and producer Koe Wetzel has unapologetically bulldozed a path of his own since 2015 with a homegrown blend of grunge, country, Americana, and anything else he pleases. After moving 200,000-plus units of independent releases such as Noise Complaint  and Harold Saul High , selling out countless shows, and even launching his own live extravaganza Koe Wetzel’s Incredible Music FesEval, and racking up over 485 million streams and views to date, he makes his major label debut in 2020 with his third album, Sellout [Columbia Records]. In addition to applause from American Songwriter and more, Rolling Stone christened it “a hard-rocking stomper that owes more to grunge and fellow Texans the Toadies than any of Wetzel’s Red Dirt peers.”
