Luke Bryan Announces Final Spring Break Concert and EP

He'll Hit the Beach One Last Time

This year will mark the end of an era for Luke Bryan, as he raises a final beer to the fans of his long-running spring break concert series.

For the past six years, Bryan has been throwing a massive, free beach concert at Spinnaker Beach Club in Panama City, Florida. Last year, the two-day event drew an estimated 200,000 fans.

“This will be our last spring break show in Panama City,” Bryan announced during a wide-ranging press conference Wednesday (Jan. 21). “We’ve had such an amazing run down there. It has been something that I look forward to year after year, and last year was just amazingly over the top.”

This year, the superstar said he plans to end the tradition on a high note.

“It’s been an amazing run when you look at how we entered into our spring break process,” he said. “We just wanted to go play some music on the beach, and it’s turned into albums and releasing songs online via iTunes, and then it’s turned into physical albums which we’ve been so blessed to sell a lot of copies of, and now the last spring break album will be called Luke Bryan: Spring Break … Checkin’ Out.

The EP, which is expected March 10, will be Bryan’s seventh spring break collection, following 2014’s Like We Ain’t Ever and 2013’s Here to Party.

Though fans might be disappointed with the end of the hugely popular concert series, Bryan says there are already exciting plans in the works for the future.
