Brad Paisley's "Virtual Reality Tour" has been such a success it may go on forever. If you get a chance to catch a show somewhere, I highly recommend it.

Brad Paisley wrapped up the first leg of his Virtual Reality World Tour 2012 this past weekend with stops in Baltimore, Maryland, Knoxville, Tennessee and Lexington, Kentucky. Since the tour kicked off in January, it’s played for over 218,000 fans with 19 sell-outs! The Band Perry and Scotty McCreery have been special guests on the tour, but they weren’t the only additions and updates to Brad’s lineup this year. Brad told CMT Daily Roundup, “It’s all about content. It’s really about, what do we do on these songs. How do we make something like ‘American Saturday Night’ look a little different than last year? What do we do? And that’s where my video company is so great at that. I mean they showed me animation that they’d done, this 3-D looking graphic stuff that’s different from what we were using.” Brad announced additional dates for the tour on Tuesday. The second leg kicks off May 18th in St. Louis, MO and ends October 20th in Los Angeles, CA.
