Country superstar Tim McGraw performed for the first time in London this past weekend at the O2 Arena. McGraw’s headlining set incited an overwhelming response from the first time audience with Entertainment Focus noting that “When Tim hit the stage, the entire arena came on fire.” McGraw’s Big Machine Records debut TWO LANES OF FREEDOM was released last week to eager fans in the UK and landed at No. one on the iTunes Country Album chart.
While in London, McGraw made a surprise appearance at a Ne-Yo concert to perform their song “She Is.” Ne-Yo is just one of the many artists slated to perform at ACM PRESENTS: TIM McGRAW’S SUPERSTAR SUMMER NIGHT. The show is taping April 8 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and will be broadcast at a later date on the CBS Television Network. Next up for McGraw is the launch of his 30 city TWO LANES OF FREEDOM TOUR on May 2 in Birmingham, AL.
