Sam Hunt Bumps Southside Summer Tour Dates to July
Sam Hunt's summer tour is going to start six weeks later than he'd hoped. The "Kinfolks" singer's Southside Summer Tour will now begin on July 10 in Bangor, Maine, instead of the previously-scheduled date in late May.
The push effects 12 tour dates. Six of them have been added to the end of the tour in October, while five others are slotted between existing commitments. One show — June 20 stop in Chicago — has been outright canceled.
This tour is Hunt's first headlining tour in several years, after taking 2019 off from the road and spending 2018 on the road with Luke Bryan. Talking to Taste of Country earlier this month, Hunt expressed hope that the coronavirus would not force him to push shows back, as he was excited to play for his fans. However, the move was made out of caution and public health and safety.
The Southside Summer Tour was named after Hunt's new Southside album, which debuted at No. 1 on the country album sales chart. "Hard to Forget" is Hunt's current single on the album.
