Next year for the first time, Toby Keith will head to Australia. He’ll take his Hammer Down Under Tour to Australia in March 2014, also headlining the 2014 CMC Rocks the Hunter festival during his visit. Kellie Pickler and Eli Young Band will join him on the tour as special guests.
“The Outlaws of country music have always been huge with Aussie fans,” CEO of Entertainment Edge Rob Potts said. “No surprise this country started out as a convict settlement. So we know why the fans are so excited about Toby’s first-ever tour here. They love his larrikin outlaw attitude and the fact that he doesn’t take himself too seriously. We’re super excited to have him touring in March and know the fans will go wild when he rolls out his incredible catalogue of hits. It’s also terrific to welcome back Eli Young Band and to have Kellie Pickler on her first visit down under.”
“Toby Keith is one of the biggest artists in modern country music,” Executive Chairman of Chugg Entertainment Michael Chugg said. “We’ve been hearing about his rowdy, rockin’ live show in this country for many years. One of the biggest songwriters in any genre, Aussie audiences have really connected with his irreverent humour. We still think “he’s as good as he once was”- and with three international heavyweights on one bill, this is going to be the country tour of the year - my mate Jimmy Buffett said he is not to be missed!”
