Dierks Bentley Announces Tour With Lambert, Rogers

Dierks Bentley will launch his new Locked & Loaded tour on Oct. 4 in Auburn, Ala., with opening acts Miranda Lambert and the Randy Rogers Band. Although he’ll be playing in larger venues, Bentley will issue general admission tickets on the floor at most shows to recreate the club atmosphere from his early career. Some reserved seating will be available in the venues, as well. “I’ve really shaped my career around my live show because that’s where it started for me, playing for nothing but tip jars and alcohol,” Bentley said. “If we do it right, the fans won’t even notice we are in a bigger venue this time around.” The cities on the itinerary are listed on Bentley’s Web site, but no specific dates have been announced.
