Luke Bryan to Stream Live New York Show
This Friday, August 7th, country superstar Luke Bryan will celebrate the release of his fifth full-length album, Kill the Lights with a live-streamed performance and party at New York City’s Irving Plaza.
Tickets are on sale Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. ET to Citi cardholders. For fans unable to attend, the exclusive concert will stream live at 9:00 p.m. ET on Yahoo’s Live Nation Channel. Fans can also stream the concert through the Yahoo Screen App on mobile devices.
Kill the Lights is the follow up to Bryan’s most successful project to date, Crash My Party. The reigning Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year has placed 12 singles at Number One and sold 7.5 million albums with 30 million digital tracks downloaded. His current Kick the Dust Up tour will continue through October, and is also the title of the first single from the new album.
“‘Kick the Dust Up’ isn’t indicative of everything on [Kill the Lights],” Bryan told Rolling Stone Country earlier this summer. “The main thing is ‘Kick the Dust Up’ gets it goin’, gets it rockin’. It’s a big, fun, summer, outdoorsy anthem.”
In that case, Irving Plaza will offer an appropriate setting for the album release show, in a spirited but slightly more intimate way than, say, the seven arenas lined up on the rest of the tour. “I am so excited to be getting this new music out to my fans and cannot wait to be on stage and enjoy the album release night with them!” Bryan writes in a statement.
