Luke Combs has unveiled the opening acts for his blockbuster 2023 world tour, with Appalachian country-folk prodigies, 49 Winchester, set to join him on all of his European dates.
Combs will embark on his European leg on September 30, with shows lined up in the UK, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, France and more.
Also supporting Combs on his performances in the UK and Europe will be Ray Fulcher, Drew Parker and James McNair, who will play as part of a special pre-show writer's round.
Given the intensity of Combs’ high-energy live shows, starting off the set with a drawn-in writer's round will be the perfect way to easy attendees into a night of stellar music.
UK country fans will get a taste of the electricity 49 Winchester bring to their live shows at the upcoming C2C Festival in London. The band will be performing a number of times across the weekend.
The Virginia-based outfit will perform an array of hits from their diverse repertoire, including ‘Russell County Line’, ‘Annabel’, ‘Long Hard Life’ and ‘Damn Darlin’’.
Ray Fulcher serves as another popular choice as support among Luke Combs’ fanbase, given the fact that the Georgia native has co-written a range of Combs’ hits over the years. Fulcher's co-writes include ‘Even Though I'm Leaving’, ‘When It Rains It Pours’, ‘Lovin’ On You’, ‘Does to Me’, ‘Moon Over Mexico’, ‘Out There’ and numerous others.
Drew Parker is another songwriter-turned-solo-artist, with Parker having penned Luke Combs fan-favourites such as ‘Forever After All’, ‘1, 2 Many’, ‘Nothing Like You’ and ‘Lonely One’.
Another up-and-coming artist, James McNair, will complete Luke Combs’ European writer's round line-up.
As part of the announcement, Luke Combs revealed he'd also be making more spaces available to his world tour shows, due to many of them selling out shortly after tickets were made available.
