Tim McGraw is Hitting Amphitheatres this Summer!

Tim McGraw is going on tour this summer, and it might just end up being one of the coolest experiences his fans have ever had. Hitting up some of the biggest amphitheatres in some of the biggest cities, McGraw will also be bringing some big guests along; and is relying on fans to spread the word during promotion.

The Two Lanes of Freedom tour kicks off on May 2 in Birmingham, Alberta and from there McGraw will travel through Charlotte, Tampa, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Salt Lake City, and Boston, to name just a few. It will wrap up on July 7 in Virginia Beach, and a full listing of dates and cities can be found here.

The tour will support Tim’s latest album of the same name, which is due out in February. And just as all the stars are doing these days, McGraw took to his YouTube channel earlier this week to announce the tour; and the unique way that fans can help.

“This album marks a new sense of excitement and artistic freedom for me and I really wanted to extend that same feeling to the tour and create a cool vibe for the fans,” McGraw said. “We’ve started working up new songs from the album, and there’s some really cool stuff we’ll be able to pull out this summer.”

Some of that “cool stuff” the country singer has drummed up for fans is the “Fanticipation” program. Through this tour element, certain fans will be contacted by Tim McGraw himself via Tumblr to let them know when tickets will be going on sale in their hometown. He’s counting on fans to spread the word through Tumblr and other social media outlets, allowing them to have full control of the process.

Brantley Gilbert and Love & Theft will be supporting Tim on the tour; and in the meanwhile, Tim will be busy with other gigs. Those include joining his wife, Faith Hill, onstage at the Venetian in Las Vegas for a handful of Soul2Soul shows. While fans wanted the couple to take this show on the road, too, Tim says they’re just enjoying what they have for the moment.

“We just couldn’t do it,” he told Billboard earlier this month. “This was a way we could play together and only be gone one or two nights a month.”
