Drake White is going international, bringing his headline THE OPTIMYSTIC TOUR across the pond for a UK run of five dates in August 2022. Tickets go on sale this Friday (3/25) at 10 a.m. GMT – buy them here.
The week-long trek will kick off with an electric headlining appearance from White at the Millport Country Music Festival before he visits Manchester, London and Bristol, wrapping with a headlining stop at The Long Road Festival in Leicestershire.
“I have my grandfather’s globe in my studio and I remember looking at it before I could grow a beard,” White shares. “A stroke and a pandemic kept me from playing abroad the last few years, but I’m happy to announce we are headed your way!”
The international run is in support of White’s latest studio album, THE OPTIMYSTIC, which arrived on March 11 and is racking up glowing reviews from critics and fans alike.
White is currently on tour with Whiskey Myers on their WHISKEY MYERS IS A COMIN’ TOUR through March 26 before moving to the Spring leg of his THE OPTIMYSTIC TOUR in the US, which begins with a show in Portland, Maine on April 1 and ends with a stop in Jackson, Tennessee on May 21. White will be joined by Kasey Tyndall on all dates of his Spring run. Find full tour details here.
