Brad Paisley's Next Tour & Album Take Shape
In just ten days, Brad Paisley will be on the next leg for the Paisley Party Tour. However, Brad is looking ahead already to the next run of concerts he will do to coincide with his new album’s release this summer.
One of the main things he wants to do is to give people a really big show, but in a way for making the equipment to be as small as it can possibly be.
Paisley said to The Tennessean, I think this year we have nine trucks. This year I definitely do not want more than nine. We found out what can happen the hard way when it comes to gas prices. Also it is very ostentatious rolling into towns like that when everyone is hurting. I think that 2009 will be a little bit worse than 2008. People I think will still buy tickets. We will keep the price low. Also I think they will still come out for the shows because music is needed more than ever.
The tour schedule for Paisley seems to geared very intelligently around Brad’s personal life. His tour returns on January 15 with a show in Southaven, Miss. along with a new lineup of support that includes Crystal Shawanda, Dierks Bentley and Darius Rucker, and runs through March 14 with a show in Nashville. This should allow Brad to be at home when Kimberly, his wife, delivers their second baby due in April. It will allow him to be home for several months or weeks with the new baby and his son Huck before the beginning of his next tour.
