Midland to Embark on Tour, Coming to Minnesota
Midland have announced a limited-run 2018 tour following a sold-out performance at Billy Bob's and a successful Bonnaroo set.
The country trio have revealed their Electric Rodeo Tour will kick off on Oct. 24 and run through December. The eight-date trek has the band traveling through Arizona, Washington, D.C., New Jersey and Tennessee, among other states, this fall.
Tickets for the short trek go on sale June 22 at 10AM CT. Midland's headlining tour comes after a stint as openers on Thomas Rhett's Life Changes Tour. Their nightly set will include their breakout hit, "Drinkin' Problem" as well as their latest single, "Burn Out." The latter is a song the trio refer to as the "prequel" to their chart-topping hit "Drinkin' Problem."
"'Burn Out' is more or less a sister song to 'Drinkin' Problem,' very much in the same landscape. It could tell the story of how the character in 'Drinkin' Problem' could get to that place, as usually is the case through heartache," lead singer Mark Wystrach explains to Taste of Country and other media about the throwback-style song, which was created during the same two-day writing session with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne as their breakout hit.
