BOBBY BONES HONORED FOR 20 SOLD-OUT FUNNY & ALONE STAND UP COMEDY SHOWS
NASHVILLE, TN – September 28, 2017 – iHeartMedia’s Bobby Bones was honored last night for having performed 20 sold-out shows on his national FUNNY & ALONE STAND UP COMEDY TOUR. Country star Chris Janson surprised him with a plaque on stage following his comedy set at the Grand Ole Opry to commemorate the achievement. The “hilarious” (Tennessean) show became an instant hit amongst audiences with some venues selling out just minutes after going on sale. Bones recently wrapped leg two of the popular tour, touted by Sounds LIke Nashville as “one we’d see time and time again.” Due to high demand, he has added an additional date in Somerset, KY (11/11). Tickets for the show go on sale tomorrow (9/29) at www.bobbybonescomedy.com.
Bones will continue to bring laughs across the country with his comedy band The Raging Idiots as they hit the road for a limited-run tour launching in October with tickets on sale now at ragingidiots.com. See below for a full list of upcoming dates. The duo recently surprised fans with a new EP, THE NEXT EPISODE (Songs In The Key of B, LLC), available now HERE: http://apple.co/2vfbeV9 Touted as “one of the most versatile [acts]”(MLIVE), the group dropped four fun new tracks: “Golden Girls Theme Song (Thank You For Being A Friend)”, “Chick-Fil-A (…But It’s Sunday)”, “Break Up With Me” and “Namaste,” the No. 1 song for two consecutive weeks on the Digital Comedy Song Chart, according to Nielsen.
Recently voted for induction into the National Radio Hall Of Fame as the youngest inductee ever, Bobby Bones has been dubbed “the most powerful man in country music” (Forbes). His nationally syndicated radio show reaches millions of listeners on 100+ stations.
