Beginning September 26th, 2019 – Luke Bryan’s renewed Farm Tour will kick off in Marshall, Wisconsin and spread across several other states! Hundreds of thousands of fans have gathered to see his Farm Tour performances over the last decade, and this year is sure to be just as big of a hit.

Luke Bryan revealed in a 2018 press release for his 10th Anniversary Farm Tour what the mission of his yearly tour was, saying: “Our goal was to bring big-city production concerts into these small towns across the U.S., giving those communities the opportunity to attend shows that would never come their way.”

How many of y’all have been to a Farm Tour concert? Are you excited for this new one?
