Current three-time CMA nominee Dierks Bentley wrapped his 2018 MOUNTAIN HIGH TOUR last Saturday in front of a sold-out crowd at Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl. Since its launch in May, "expectations were instantly met and exceeded” (Arizona Republic) throughout the 30-city run with Bentley’s "eclectic, likable tour of country styles" (Newsday). Bentley brought along special guests Brothers Osborne and LANCO, and the tour’s final show included a two-song jam with the entire lineup and surprise guest Dwight Yoakam.
“This season of my life has been filled with so much meaning and purpose and this tour played a large role in that,” said Bentley. “We launched it with the new album, which was in a lot of ways a reflection of the fans’ stories we’d heard out on the road, combined with my own personal life and career journey. We played and sold out bucket-list rooms like Madison Square Garden and the Hollywood Bowl. Most importantly, it was a year the friendships that already existed with LANCO, Bothers Osborne and DJ AYDAMN were taken to new levels. The family atmosphere that existed on this tour is something I strive for every year and this year was no exception... it was one of the most fun touring seasons of my life on and off the stage.”
The reviews were outstanding - you really wouldn't expect anything less, Dierks Bentley is one of Country's best entertainers in the biz - check these accolades out:
"The man was greeted by one the loudest concert audiences I’ve ever heard in over 47 years of attending rock, pop, Country, heavy metal, jazz, and hip-hop shows. It was a demonstration of sheer talent and professionalism." - Arizona Republic
"This tour is definitely the can't-miss lineup of the summer. It was a four-hour nonstop party, with a DJ between sets, no less! He full on bolted around the Amp at least twice, and that's not counting all the frantic loops he does on stage. Where does he get all that energy?" - Tampa Bay Times
"He offers a musical comfort food with a large jolt of caffeine. The mix of having a classic country presentation, but then having him run into the crowd and jump on the railings holding back fans. Him holding his mic in the air, the crowd singing in response." - Dallas Observer
Next time Dierks gets himself to Australia, "do yourself a favour" and check out one of his shows - you won't regret it!
