The two posted a photo of themselves onstage to Instagram with the caption, “We’re hitting the road! Announcing the Brooks & Dunn REBOOT 2020 TOUR.”
The “Reboot 2020 Tour” will bring the two out of the retirement they announced in 2009. The tour comes on the heels of their album of duets, “Re-Boot,” which was released to critical acclaim last year.
“The memories of playing live are what have kept the fire burning for us,” said Kix Brooks in a statement on the band’s website. “Performers who have had the kind of nights like we’ve had with our fans, can never really let that go. Live is where we’re most at home, and it’s gonna feel good to be back in the saddle, let’s rodeo! We’ll see y’all out there on the trail.”
Ronnie Dunn said fan support for the “Re-Boot” album, produced by Dann Huff, made the decision to tour an easy one.
Brooks & Dunn will have “special guests” on the tour with them instead of a traditional opening act.
One possibility is some of the artists who appeared on the “Re-Boot” album will join them on stage, like Ashley McBryde, Midland, Kane Brown and Cody Johnson.
The tour is set to hit Florida, Texas, and Georgia, among other states.
The last date is currently set for September 19 in Chicago.
