Chris Young Plots 2018 Losing Sleep Tour, Stops in Iowa
Days before releasing his seventh studio album, Losing Sleep, Chris Young has announced his 2018 tour plans. Sharing the name of his album, the 2018 Losing Sleep Tour will kick off on Jan. 11 in Indianapolis, Ind. and run through Feb. 24.
“I’m so excited. It’s going to be the biggest tour I’ve ever done,” Young tells the Boot. “It’s more buses and more trucks than I’ve ever had out there. We’re doing bigger rooms than I’ve ever played."
Young and Brown recently collaborated, and he considers the young up-and-comer a friend. “I love my lineup,” the headliner says. “I think people know I’m friends with Kane. The first EP he did [Chapter 1], I have a song that I co-wrote with him on that. I wrote a song [“Comeback”] that actually he was not a writer on that he liked and cut on his record. And now that he’s done his deluxe, we have a duet on there, [“Setting the Night on Fire”], which I’m totally going to put into the show. It’s going to be a cool moment in the show for me and for him — just a lot of cool stuff came together in a lot of ways."
With an album release and a tour in the works, Young says it's the making of an incredible year.
