Get ready to lose it, Europe, because Kane Brown’s going international.
The “One Thing Right” country star departs next year on The Worldwide Beautiful tour — Brown’s first run of overseas headlining shows in his fast-growing career.
Worldwide Beautiful kicks off Feb. 2 in Dublin and takes the three-time American Music Award winner to London, Amsterdam, Paris and Berlin before returning to North America.
“We’ve been getting asked for a while when we were going to be heading overseas, and there have been a few times it’s almost worked out, but 2020 just overall was the right timing,” Brown told the USA TODAY Network – Tennessee. “We’ve known about it for a while, and I am glad we can tell people we are coming back out on the road.
“It’s important to us and to our fans to keep showing up for them and knowing how much we appreciate their support.”
The tour runs a total 23 dates, with North American shows kicking off Feb. 29 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and wrapping May 9 in Kansas City, Missouri.
Tickets to most shows go on sale Nov. 15 at 10 a.m. local time via kanebrownmusic.com. See the full dates below.
“Every Little Thing” hit-maker Russell Dickerson and “I Don’t Know About You” star Chris Lane rotate main support for each tour stop; additional opening acts will be announced later this year.
The tour — Brown’s first since the unexpected October death of his drummer, Kenny Dixon — comes after the crossover 2019 success of “One Thing Right,” a summer jam produced by hot-handed EDM tastemaker Marshmello.
Before “One Thing Right,” Brown topped the all-genre Billboard 200 chart in November 2018 with his sophomore release, “Experiment.” He’s notched chart-leading country radio hits with the likes of “Heaven,” “What Ifs” and “Good As You.”
And this slate of shows may be a chance for country faithful to hear new material from the “Lose It” co-writer.
“We named the tour ‘Worldwide Beautiful’ after a song I am working on now, which we have teased a bit but haven’t officially released yet,” Brown said. “But fans can look for that soon and for us to play it out on the road.”
It’s also Brown’s first tour since he and wife Katelyn Jae welcomed daughter Kingsley Rose Brown into the world last month. Days after her birth, Brown released “For My Daughter,” an adoring tune on his dedication to fatherhood.
Brown describes fatherhood as difficult to put into words, but lands on “amazing.”
“I feel like a lot of stuff in my life has led to this moment, and being able to be there for her and be better for her is inspiring,” Brown said. “This is the first tour she will get to see what her dad does, so I want to be able to put on the best show, make the best music, be the best dad. …
“Just overall try to be the best version of myself for our family and the fans that have been with us through everything this year.”
And, yes, Brown said he’s already working on a new bus to accommodate the growing family.
“They probably won’t be at every stop, but we plan to have the family out as much as possible,” he said. “The band and everyone’s all excited to have her out.”
