Drake White is heading back across the pond, announcing a series of tour dates in the United Kingdom and Ireland this June. Tickets for the eight-date run go on sale to the public this Friday (3/3) at 10 a.m. GMT and can be purchased here.
White will kick his visit off on June 15 in Belfast in Northern Ireland before making his way through the UK. The trek will include stops of all sizes including club shows and a slot at Black Deer Festival in Tunbridge Wells in the UK.
“We had so much fun last year, we’re headin’ back across the pond!” White shares. “Can’t wait to hang with ya!”
This will be the singer’s latest foray into Europe, having brought his headline THE OPTIMYSTIC TOUR overseas last year, marking nearly a decade of musical visits to the UK. White’s 2022 trek was praised by multiple outlets including Entertainment Focus, who highlighted White’s “power, passion and a whole lot of fun to boot,” and Six Shooter Country, who called his show “a tambourine shaking mixture of high-energy rock ‘n’ roll, honest storytelling and moments of pure joy.”

ABOUT DRAKE WHITE:
Drake White grew up singing in his church’s youth choir in Alabama before becoming one of Country music’s most spirited innovators, earning four Top 40 hits and traveling the country on multiple nationwide tours. His 2013 debut single “Simple Life” introduced his brand of Country Soul, which he cemented with 2016 debut album SPARK followed by the EPs ‘Pieces’ and ‘Stars.’ In August 2019, he collapsed on stage due to a hemorrhagic stroke, and doctors told him he might never perform again. After undergoing a series of operations to repair his Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) and months of physiotherapy, White has proved them wrong, returning to the road to spread his incredible positivity to his fans. In 2022 he embarked on his headline THE OPTIMYSTIC TOUR, which spanned dates in the US and the UK. His latest album, THE OPTIMYSTIC, is an inspiring glimpse into the journey he has taken over the past few years, and the “extremely accomplished album” (American Songwriter) delivers a “powerful message” (Nashville Lifestyles) via White’s “smooth brand of country-soul” (Billboard). White has received accolades including Rolling Stone’s 10 Country Artists You Need to Know, The Grammy’s Artist of Tomorrow and the British CMA Awards’ International Song of the Year and has shared the bill with Country music superstars like Luke Bryan, Eric Church and Zac Brown Band.
