Brantley Gilbert will perform a special stop of his Devil Don't Sleep Tour just steps away from the Atlantic Ocean. Set for Thursday, July 13th, the concert will be held in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and doubles as the country music entry in the Atlantic City BeachFest Concert Series. Pop star Pink will play the same stage the night prior, July 12th. A hip-hop and R&B show is scheduled to be announced after Memorial Day.
Gilbert says the unique outdoor venue changes the vibe of his typically supercharged shows. "Taking the music outside, where people can get as loud as they want, is always a good thing with my guys," he said in a statement.
An hour or so east of Philadelphia, Gilbert's performance is expected to attract fans from throughout the Delaware Valley and South Jersey, served mainly by WXTU, Philly's country radio station. The singer of "The Weekend" headlined the station's free 32nd anniversary concert last year.
Luke Combs, whose single "Hurricane" is just shy of the Number One slot, is slated to join Gilbert for the Jersey Shore concert. The pair have been on the road together since February.
Tickets for Gilbert and Combs' appearance at the Atlantic City BeachFest series go on sale Friday, May 12th, at 10:00 a.m./ET. Past country performers on the Atlantic City Beach have included Blake Shelton, Lady Antebellum and Zac Brown Band.
