HARDY’s graduating to arenas.
He just announced a fall addition to his the mockingbird & THE CROW tour, which will be his first time headlining arenas to what I’m sure will be many sold-out crowds.
He’s also bringing along his friend and collaborator Lainey Wilson, as well as Dylan Marlowe, to open the shows for him, which will kick off in Knoxville Tennessee at the end of August.
Of course, the arena setting ups the ante and I’m sure Hardy will kick the whole show and production up another notch, though it’s hard to imagine how, because he has one of the most high-energy, entertaining live shows I’ve seen lately.
Of the new run, he says he can’t wait to take Lainey and Dylan on the road with him, and that this new set will be the greatest yet:
“I believe I have two of the most authentic, talented acts out there opening for me on this run.
I’m honored that Dylan and Lainey are a part of this tour, and I am still in disbelief that I’m announcing my first arena tour.
Fans, I will not let you down. This WILL be the greatest HARDY set you’ve ever seen. See y’all out there.”
Hardy just released his half country, half rock the mockingbird & THE CROW record in January, and it’s really a great, interesting and innovative record and one of my favorites of the year so far.

Presale starts Wednesday at 10am local time, general sale Friday, 3/10.”
Ticket on-sale for Hardy’s fan club starts this Wednesday, and they go on sale to the general public this Friday, March 10th at 10AM local time.
Of course, Lainey and Hardy teamed up for “wait in the truck,” which is Hardy’s current single from his aforementioned new record, and will probably be a highlight of the show to hear them sign live together.
