Capacity crowds in London, Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham went crazy for multi-platinum entertainer Chris Young last week during the launch of his “Raised On Country World Tour 2019.” “Chris Young walked out and the crowd went wild,” declared The Writers Room of his Manchester Academy play, the RCA Records Nashville artist’s first headlining show in the city. He closed his UK headlining dates at London’s Eventim Apollo and “it was one hell of a raucous night,” (Entertainment Focus), leading Chris to share to share to Instagram “I cannot tell everyone in the UK how much I love them….This past week thousands of people in a different country have sung my music back at me louder than I was singing it through PA…I’m humbled. I’m honored.” His fourth UK tour in six years, Chris stacked the set with fan favorites from among his eleven No. 1 singles, including “Hangin’ On” and “Think Of You” in addition to his latest hit, “Raised On Country,” and never-before-heard songs from his upcoming 8th studio album.
The shows at Manchester Academy, Glasgow’s O2 Academy, Birmingham’s O2 Academy and London’s Eventim Apollo kicked-off his “Raised On Country World Tour 2019,” leading into this week’s North American tour launch. Chris, along with special guests Chris Janson and Dylan Scott, will play Atlanta’s Ameris Bank Amphitheatre (5/16), Charlotte’s PNC Music Pavilion (5/17) and Washington D.C.’s Jiffy Lube Live (5/18). After last year’s massively successful “Losing Sleep” headline tour, Chris reimagined his “Raised On Country World Tour 2019” and revealed to People, “I took everything we’ve ever done and put it to the side and started over…we literally started from scratch and were like, let’s make the coolest show I can possibly make.”
“Raised On Country,” the tour’s namesake and lead single, ascends to #16 Mediabase / #19 Billboard and climbing this week ahead of the U.S. tour launch this week.
