Vince Gill announces 2018 Tour Dates

Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill announces today upcoming tour dates for the remainder of 2018. (Full list below.) Gill has been part of a rigorous and highly acclaimed tour with the Eagles for most of this year.  The group will wrap their 2018 tour in Cleveland, OH on October 20.  On October 9 & 10 they will perform two shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

One of the most popular and most recorded singers of the past quarter-century, superstar Gill has become the measure of excellence in country music. His vocal performances are spellbinding, his songwriting emotionally powerful, and his guitar-playing world-class. Gill, along with his top-notch band, will be performing 28 shows. Bandmates include Glenn Worf, bass; Billy Thomas, drums/vocals; John Jarvis, keyboards; Jeff White, guitar/vocals; Tom Bukovac, guitar; Jedd Hughes, guitar/vocals; Wendy Moten, vocals; and Paul Franklin, steel.

Some particular venues of interest on this tour include the historic Surf Ballroom, the location of Buddy Holly’s famous last gig--the day the music died. It will be the first time Gill has played the room. Also, a return to the scene of the crime, Gill will play the Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall, his hometown venue where he was famously booed off the stage while performing as part of the bluegrass band Mountain Smoke and opening for rock band KISS.

In addition to his own touring dates, he’ll join his wife Amy Grant on stage in Nashville for their annual Christmas at the Ryman show at the historic auditorium. A long-standing Christmas tradition, this year the couple ups their game and will host an unprecedented 12 nights throughout the months of November and December.

Gill achieved his big breakthrough in 1990 with “When I Call Your Name,” which won both the Country Music Association’s Single and Song of the Year Awards as well as a Grammy.  Gill has won 18 CMA Awards, including Song of the Year four times – making him the most-awarded artist in that category in CMA history. Since 1990, Gill has won 21 GRAMMY Awards. A wide-ranging songwriter, his compositions earned him entry into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2005. The Academy of Country Music has conferred on Gill eight awards, including its prestigious Home Depot Humanitarian Award and the 2011 Career Achievement Award.  Gill was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2007. He is also a member of the Grand Ole Opry. In August 2012, Gill was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Gill has produced albums for The Time Jumpers, LeAnn Rimes, Amy Grant and Ashley Monroe, and has made guest appearances on more than 1000 albums, including those by Barbra Streisand, Eric Clapton, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, George Jones and others.
