Dierks Bentley – with special guests Eli Young Band and Will Hoge – will play the Everett’s Comcast Arena on Saturday, April 21 in an 8 p.m. show.

It’s one of 20 stops on the multi-platinum singer/songwriter’s Country & Cold Cans Tour. The day before the Everett stop he’ll be performing in Yakima.

From the press release:

“Country & Cold Cans was such a great tour last fall…it’s just way too much fun to stop and we knew we had to
continue it into the spring and make another run across the U.S. when we get home from Canada and Australia. We’re even going to Alaska…giving new meaning to COLD cans,” laughed Bentley. “I’m excited that EYB is coming out with us again…great dudes and they put on a killer show.”

Bentley is currently gearing up for the release of his sixth studio album Home on Feb. 7. The new album’s anthemic second single and title track received an ACM nomination for Song Of The Year and is pushing its way up the Top 10 of the radio charts. Billboard noted that the song is “Maybe his strongest lyrical statement to date,
the single reminds us of a late 70s Haggard track — the ultimate compliment. The past few years have seen some of the best work of his career, and this is another example.” The lead single “Am I The Only One” already peaked in the No. one spot and has been certified GOLD. Bentley’s earlier albums have earned him eight No. one hits,
over five million total album sales and 10 GRAMMY nominations.

Eli Young Band’s “Crazy Girl,” has been certified PLATINUM with sales of over 1.4 million downloads and was named Billboard’s No. one Country Song of The Year. The band has performed the hit on Late Show With David Letterman, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and the ACA Awards. Life At Best made its debut at No. three on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart and No. six on the Billboard 200. It came in at No. one on the iTunes Country Albums Chart and No. two on the iTunes All Genre chart.

Critically acclaimed Nashville singer/songwriter Will Hoge’s seventh studio album, aptly titled Number Seven, explores the struggles of the heart that are Hoge’s songwriting stock in trade while revealing enticing range and freshness on the sonic front. The Philadelphia Inquirer noted its “raw, impassioned power,” while the Chicago
Sun-Times called it “a rich, textured album.” For the past 10 years, Hoge has maintained a rigorous touring schedule, building his fan base by playing hundreds of shows a year.

Tickets ($25, $35) are on sale Friday, March 2 at 10 a.m. Tickets available at Comcast Arena at Everett Box Office,
charge by phone 866-332-8499 and online at ComcastArenaEverett.com.
