Brantley Gilbert Returns To Mohegan Sun On ‘The Ones That Like Me Tour’

Monday, March 5th, 2018

Live in the Arena on Saturday, August 11th

UNCASVILLE, CT (March 5, 2018) – Country star Brantley Gilbert is scheduled to return to Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, August 11th at 7:30pm on “The Ones That Like Me Tour” with special guests Aaron Lewis and Josh Phillips.

Tickets are $79.00, $59.00 and $39.00 and go on sale Friday, March 9th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster. Ticketmaster customers may log on to Ticketmaster.com or call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office beginning on Saturday, March 10th, subject to availability.

Brantley Gilbert lives in Jefferson, Georgia rather than – like so many Country stars — Nashville. It’s not that he’s not serious about his music, or his career, but some things run deeper. Or, as he sings in “Grown Ass Man” from his platinum Just As I Am, “I got a home.” That home is rich with life, truth, friends, history – and those are the raw materials that have made Gilbert one of only four Country artists with back-to-back platinum-certified albums.

For Gilbert, who won the 2014 American Music Award for “Favorite Country Album” for Just As I Am, every album is another chapter in the life the unrepentant good ole boy has led. Whether it’s raising hell, standing tall or bottoming out, Gilbert’s truth speaks to the heart of blue collar life in the 21st century: hard working, fun loving and deeply committed to the people he loves.

“I’ve been full-on writing, recording, collaborating and creating with some incredibly talented people for GRAFFITI U, a lot of whom I’ve never worked with before,” said Urban.  “I can hear how some of the songs will translate live already, which really makes putting on a new show so exhilarating and I loved having our fans included in the announcement of the tour because it’s their tour too.”

“I remember hearing Keith Urban songs that stopped me in my tracks and made me want to drop everything and chase that kind of lyric and heart-filled artistry,” says Ballerini. “He’s the best in the business and I can’t wait to fangirl and learn from him this year. Truly an honor to tour with him.”
