Kelsea Ballerini 2018 Headlining Tour Announced
WOOHOO! Kelsea Ballerini is back at it for her SECOND headlining tour! She made the announcement Monday (October 30th) and fans couldn’t be more excited! Kelsea’s first headlining tour, “The First Time”, was such a success that she couldn’t WAIT to get back out there again. Country newcomer Walker Hayes, singer of the charting “You Broke Up With Me”, will be the opening act. The tour will begin in February and go through April, although more dates may be announced in the future.
Kelsea Recently told the media, "I’m so excited because it is my favorite thing I’ve ever done in my life. We did it last December, and I didn’t know if I could do it or not, because I had never tried. I was like, ‘I don’t know if I can sell tickets. I’m always opening for people.’ But we did, and it was the most fulfilling thing I had done.”
In 2017, Kelsea joined Lady Antebellum on the road for their “You Look Good” tour, as well as Thomas Rhett for his “Home Team” tour. She hinted she may be opening for another artist in 2018, but did not give any details.
Ballerini’s new album, Unapologetically, will be released THIS Friday (November 3rd), and is currently available for pre-order on Amazon and iTunes. Full tour dates are listed below.
