Chris Stapleton Announces First-Ever Australian Tour Dates

April 3, 2024 - News

American country music superstar Chris Stapleton will tour Australia and New Zealand for the first time in February and March 2025, bringing his All-American Roadshow Goes Down Under to arenas in both countries. Stapleton will be accompanied by special guest Marcus King.

The tour begins at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on Tuesday, 25 February, followed by the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Friday, 28 February, Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena on Tuesday, 4 March, and wraps up at Auckland’s Spark Arena on Friday, 7 March.

The tour arrives in support of Stapleton’s latest album, Higher, released in November. Higher was produced by Dave Cobb, Morgane Stapleton, and Chris Stapleton and was released via Mercury Nashville. Higher “showcases his supernatural voice and musical versatility with songs that span genres and defy easy categorisation.” 

As well as his own music, Stapleton has been busy collaborating with artists such as Justin Timberlake (Say Something), Adele, P!nk, Snoop Dogg, Taylor Swift, Sheryl Crow, Metallica, and featured on Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave guitarist Tom Morello’s album, The Atlas Underground Fire (on The War Inside). Last year, he duetted with Carly Pearce on her song, We Don’t Fight Anymore.
