Latest Country Concert News, December 2016

We’ve had a lot of concert details come our way for some really cool country music concerts coming to Northeast Iowa. Here are the latest details we have on all of those shows including Florida Georgia Line.

Over the past five weeks, we’ve announced some pretty sweet concerts that will be in our area: Lee Brice, Chris Stapleton, Dierks Bentley, Dan + Shay, and even Florida Georgia Line.

DATE: TBD
VENUE: TBD
TICKET ON-SALE: TBD

The biggest demand for information has to be for the Florida Georgia Line concert that was announced back in October (web). On October 27th, FGL announced 27 additional dates added to their Dig You Roots Tour, and all of those new dates were slated for 2017. Cedar Falls, IA was listed on that list.

That list was in alphabetical order, so we weren’t able create any kind of timeline for the shows. We were looking at Florida Georgia Line tour page on their web site this morning,and we saw some open dates that make sense as far as travel is concerned. It also lines up with the historical dates we’ve seen for big shows at the UNI-Dome. That being said, still nothing official!

The promoter has yet to release any official information regarding the concert date, ticket on-sale date, or if this is still on as planned.   While checking FGL’s web site tour page, we noticed that 23 (of those proposed 27) tour stops are scheduled for 2017. We have our fingers crossed that Cedar Falls is still on that list of 27.

Country on the River has become one of the best country music parties in the Midwest. Featuring a great annual talent lineup, a free Thursday night show, on-site camping and a scenic rural backdrop, Country on the River has all of the makings of an event that cannot be missed.

One of the biggest responses we saw came after the Buchanan County Fair Lee Brice concert announcement (web). If the initial buzz is any indication, this show is going to a must-attend event in 2017.

Lee Brice Hits include: “Drinking Class”, “Drive Your Truck”, “A Woman Like You”, “Hard to Love”, “I Don’t Dance”, “Parking Lot Party” “That Don’t Sound Like You”, and “Love Like Crazy”.

What a great title for a tour. Dierks Bentley comes to the US Cellular Center (web). He brings his What the Hell World Tour, along with Cole Swindell, to the US Cellular Center.

Dierks’ shows have always been a fun, high-energy affair that roll late into the night. He has never been one to follow trends; he challenges them and creates his own.
