Country music superstar Tim McGraw and award winning vocalist and wife Faith Hill set out for their first-ever Australian tour together earlier this month. Fans and critics alike have been anticipating their arrival for months and the couple did not disappoint as they performed for sold-out crowds in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, and helped set an attendance record at the CMC Rocks the Hunter festival. The whirlwind tour ended with a sold-out show at the Allphones Arena in Sydney with McGraw rocking through a set consisting of only No. one hits and Hill dazzling fans with her breath-taking vocal performance.
“I’ve toured Australia before, and each time it gets better and better,” said McGraw. “We had an awesome time traveling around the country and getting to meet and play for so many fans…they love their country music, and they really showed us a great time.”
“If he can keep connecting with material as strong as this, the next 20 years of his career might prove to be as successful as the first 20.”- The Brisbane Courier-Mail
“Perfect harmonies…gutsy vocals.”- The Sydney Morning Herald
Immediately upon his return from Australia, McGraw will head to Las Vegas where he will perform at the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday, April 1 on CBS. He will also make a special appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, April 4 and will perform on the ACM Presents: Lionel Richie and Friends In Concert airing on Friday, April 13 on CBS.
McGraw will now begin preparations for what is anticipated to be the biggest stadium tour in country music history with old friend Kenny Chesney. The ‘Brothers of the Sun’ Tour will reunite McGraw and Chesney for the first time in 10 years. The 20-city US tour kicks off on June 2 in Tampa and will hit the nation’s biggest stadiums through August.
