Toby Keith Heads to Australia in 2014 for First Arena Tour Down Under

Country star Toby Keith is taking his high-octane tour down under next year as he will embark on his very first Australian tour. Continue on for more info from Toby and locations about the tour here! The Hammer Down Tour will hit Australia before returning to the USA for a string of dates.

Keith's Hammer Down Under Tour will kick off in Australia starting in March 2014. While overseas, Keith will also headline the 2014 CMC Rocks the Hunter festival at the Hope Estate in NSW's Hunter Valley. 

Joining Keith on the multi-city trek will be Kellie Pickler and the Eli Young Band.

"The Outlaws of country music have always been huge with Aussie fans," says CEO of Entertainment Edge, Rob Potts. "No surprise this country started out as a convict settlement. So we know why the fans are so excited about Toby's first ever tour here. They love his larrikin outlaw attitude and the fact that he doesn't take himself too seriously. We're super excited to have him touring in March and know the fans will go wild when he rolls out his incredible catalogue of hits. It's also terrific to welcome back Eli Young Band and to have Kellie Pickler on her first visit down under."  

"Toby Keith is one of the biggest artists in modern country music," adds Executive Chairman of Chugg Entertainment, Michael Chugg. "We've been hearing about his rowdy, rockin' live show in this country for many years. One of the biggest songwriters in any genre, Aussie audiences have really connected with his irreverent humor. We still think 'he's as good as he once was' - and with three international heavyweights on one bill, this is going to be the country tour of the year. My mate Jimmy Buffett said he is not to be missed!" Tickets to the Australian dates go on sale on Friday, October 14 at 9:00AM. A list of confirmed dates are as follows:
