Dierks Bentley‘s first Australian tour will take place May 1-9 with performances in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. He’ll be opening shows for Brooks & Dunn. “We got a taste of international touring last summer when we played all over Europe, and I’m hooked,” Bentley said. “I’ve heard that Australia has some hard-core country music fans, so I am looking forward to getting down there and playing for them. You can’t go to Australia without exploring the local culture in the pubs, so I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t equally as excited about that.” In addition, Bentley will perform his new single, “Sideways,” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday (April 28), with future appearances scheduled on The Bonnie Hunt Show and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.
