Country superstar Luke Combs will return to stadiums in 2024, playing two nights with two different sets of openers in most cities. 

The reigning two-time CMA Entertainer of the Year announced The Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old Tour will kick off April 12 at American Family Field in Milwaukee and includes two days at Cincinnati’s Paycor Stadium on Aug. 2-3. 

In Cincinnati, The Avett Brothers and Charles Wesley Godwin will open on Aug. 2, with Mitchell Tenpenny and Drew Parker opening the following night. 

“We got an opportunity to do two shows in some U.S. markets on the world tour, but when I found out we were going to be able to do two shows for most of the cities on the 2024 tour, I decided I wanted each show to have their own unique set up of openers, as well as my own unique setlist,” Combs said in a press release. “I thought this would give people an opportunity to come to both nights if they want, but see two completely different shows.”

See Chris Tucker perform

Actor/comedian Chris Tucker has announced his first tour in more than a decade.

The Legend Tour 2023 visits 30 cities this fall, including Palace Theatre in Columbus, Ohio, on Oct. 10, Arnoff Center for the Arts in Cincinnati on Oct. 11, KeyBank State Theatre in Cleveland on Oct. 12, Chicago Theatre on Nov. 29, Old National Centre in Indianapolis on Dec. 2, and Fox Theatre in Detroit on Jan. 12. 

In a statement announcing the tour, Tucker noted he began his “career doing stand-up in comedy clubs and it’s stand-up comedy that prepared me for all of my movie roles.”

Frehley keeps touring

As his former Kiss bandmates wrap up their touring career in a few months, guitarist Ace Frehley doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. He has seemingly been touring non-stop since venues reopened following COVID-19 shutdowns. 

A Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-enshrined musician in his own right, Frehley will give us a couple more opportunities to see him in 2023 as he has booked the Brown County Music Center in Nashville, Indiana, on Nov. 2 and Paramount Theatre in Anderson the following night. 

Frehley is also slated to appear at the Days of the Dead convention in Chicago to sign autographs Nov. 17-19.

Judd promises nostalgia

Country Music Hall of Famer Wynonna Judd is preparing to embark on the next chapter of her career with the announcement of her Back To Wy Tour. 

Having wrapped up her time celebrating the music she made with her mother, Naomi Judd, as The Judds, Wynnona promised “two words …NUH-STALGIA,” she said in a press release. “We’re going to travel back to the ’90s, celebrating my start as a solo artist and performing my first two albums, Wynonna and Tell Me Why, top to bottom, back-to-back, in their entirety! This means we get to play the hits, the deep cuts, and everything in between.” 

The tour starts at Old National Centre in Indianapolis on Oct. 26 and also stops at Rosemont Theatre near Chicago on Nov. 2.
