U.S. Next Month
Nashville, TN – April 29, 2019 – Current ACM Awards Male Artist of the Year and multi-PLATINUM selling performer Thomas Rhett brought his critically acclaimed LIFE CHANGES TOUR to Canada this past weekend with a string of sold-out and packed arenas in Montreal, Ottawa and London. Long recognized for his “infectious energy” (iHeart Radio) onstage, the Canadian launch follows 2018’s U.S. LIFE CHANGES TOUR, which drew in thousands of fans and led critics to praise Thomas Rhett’s live show as he’s “fearlessly come into his own” (Tennessean), “adept at engaging a crowd” (Houston Chronicle), and noting “there’s a palpable connection between the country music superstar and his fans” (M-LIVE).

“We have never worked so intensely in rehearsals, with our entire band and crew literally working round the clock for several weeks, challenging ourselves to take the show to an even bigger level. Getting to start in Canada and feed off the crazy energy from the Canadian fans was the perfect way to kick off the tour. We’re fired up and can’t wait to do it again next weekend!” said Thomas Rhett.
With electricity pulsating through at-capacity venues, fans were treated to arena-ready debut performances of new songs from Thomas Rhett’s hotly anticipated upcoming studio album CENTER POINT ROAD (The Valory Music Co.) out May 31. Performing “Remember You Young,” and “Beer Can’t Fix,” (featuring Jon Pardi) the “talented performer, songwriter and all around star” (Forbes), also unleashed the “funkier, horn-laced” (Rolling Stone) “Don’t Threaten Me With a Good Time,” (featuring Little Big Town), and his Top 10 smash “Look What God Gave Her.”
