Brantley Gilbert and the Hell on Wheels Tour will be at the Amarillo Civic Center Coliseum on Thursday, Oct. 18 at 7:30 p.m. This tour is Brantley Gilbert’s first-ever headline production.
Gilbert is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter of the American country rock genre. He has released two albums in his career. “Modern Day Prodigal Son” was released in 2009 and “Halfway to Heaven” came out in 2011. “Country Must Be Country Wide” and “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do” are two of his top songs that are currently on the music charts.
“It’s going to be a fun night” said Glenn Smith, with Glenn Smith Presents, Inc.
Smith believes that Gilbert wants the tickets to be as low as possible. He has his fan-base built and doesn’t want to lose it due to cost.
“He really tries to take care of his fans” said Smith.
The ticket prices are as follows: $24 for the back stands, $34 for reserved seats at the back of the floor and front stands, and $39 for stage front floor tickets. Smith encourages everyone to get their tickets as soon as possible.
“This is going to be an exciting show; a unique case with more than just one act” said Michael J. Thero, marketing administrator for the Amarillo Civic Center.
Not only will Brantley Gilbert be the headliner, but also Uncle Kracker, Greg Baits and Bryan Davis will accompany him. Thero thinks that since two bigger artists are playing together in Amarillo, no one should miss this event. Though Gilbert has played shows in Amarillo before, Thero knows this will be his best show yet.
“I’m super pumped” said Felicia McKitterick, a senior Biology major at WTAMU.
After missing his last concert at Midnight Rodeo in Amarillo, she is very ready to see him at the Civic Center. All of her friends have been preparing her for this concert.
“I didn’t know who he was until I heard ‘Country Must Be Country Wide’ on the radio,” she said.
After researching him a little, she became a fan. She believes this will be a great night out with her friends and listening to great country music.
