Luke Bryan Doubling Down on Safety for Farm Tour Shows
Luke Bryan wants fans to know he’s doing everything he can to keep them safe during his Farm Tour dates scheduled for this weekend.
Three Farm Tour dates remain for 2017, including a Thursday stop in Fort Wayne, Ind., Friday’s show in Edinburg, Ill. and Saturday’s show (Oct. 7) in Centralia, Mo.
“We want to assure our fans that we are working with state and local officials to do everything possible to ensure your safety during our Farm Tour shows,” he says in a Facebook post targeted to certain areas of the country. “Country music has always been about community and we will continue to stand together.”
Bryan’s comments came Monday (Oct. 1), just hours after a gunman killed 58 and wounded over 500 during the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas. During an appearance on Good Morning America on Wednesday Bryan says it was one of the most heartbreaking days of his life. He had spoken to Route 91 headliner Jason Aldean at that point, and his friend was very shaken by the events.
“Knowing they’ll never be able to un-see these things, you get lumps, and you get nauseated … it’s hard,” he told the GMA hosts in an appearance that introduced him as an American Idol judge.
Bryan’s Farm Tour is not his only remaining dates of 2017. He has several more stops planned on his Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day Tour planned through October.
