Thomas Rhett announces Life Changes Tour 2018

Thomas Rhett is responding to the overwhelming demand for his “forward thinking” (Sioux City Journal) live show, announcing his headlining Life Changes Tour 2018 set to hit 30 cities. The announcement comes as his debut headlining Home Team Tour, “one of the best country concerts of the year” (Peoria Star Journal), marks 27 sold-out shows so far this year. The “standout” (Billboard) multi-Platinum artist will bring his “commanding stage presence” (Rolling Stone) to fans across the country next April with CMA Awards New Artist of the Year nominee Brett Young as well as a combination of country music’s freshest talent including Jillian Jacqueline, Carly Pearace and Russell Dickerson.

The second leg will kick off September 13th with Young and red-hot trio Midland as support. First tickets will go on sale beginning this Friday (Nov 3rd) in select markets at 10 am local time at ticketmaster.com. Live Nation is the tour’s official promoter and Citi is the official pre-sale credit card. As such, Citi cardmembers will have access to purchase pre-sale tickets beginning Tuesday (Oct 31st) at 10 am local time prior to the general public on sale through Citi’s Private Pass program.

“Headlining for the first time has been pretty unreal,” states Rhett who launched his first headline arena tour in 2017. “It’s wild to me that next year we will be launching our second year of headline shows and are bringing out some of my favorite artists in music right now. I think the fans have come to expect that we’re going to be on our feet and having the time of our lives every single night.”
