Gilbert reschedules Europe shows

Friday, December 18, 2015 – Brantley Gilbert will reschedule his European Black Out Tour dates for early
May. He postponed shows in November following the Paris terrorist attacks.

Gilbert kicked off his tour with a sold-out show Nov. 11 at Melkweg in Amsterdam and playing Hamburg, Germany's Fabrik and Munich, Germany's Technikum.

At the time, Gilbert Tweeted, "Out of respect for the lives lost in yesterday's terrorist attacks, we have decided to postpone the rest of our European dates. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of France at this tragic time. We will be back as soon as possible, and at a more appropriate time."

Gilbert will play
May 5 in Glasow, Scotland at Oran Mor,
May 6 at Manchester's Academy Two,
May 7 at Birmingham's 02 Institute 1 and
May 8 at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire.

"At a time like that, there are more important things than getting up and rocking out," Gilbert said. "We took a moment to pray, regroup allow people time to grieve. But we said we'd be back...and we're coming."

This why I play music," Gilbert says. "To bring it to the people... to bring them together. We are in this together, and these songs I write are their lives, too. For me to go to places like Germany, England, Scotland - it makes the world bigger and smaller, and I like that. We're not so different. People like to rock and be real; that's what we're finally getting to do.

The Devil Don't Sleep CD review - The Devil Don't Sleep
For those fans worrying over the potential demise of bro country, rest easy; Brantley Gilbert is here to keep that flag flying high. Comprised of a solid set of radio ready rockers alongside a few tamer numbers, Gilbert sets out to prove the establishment wrong, rolling his way through 16 tales of hard living and partying. Yet, while Gilbert holds strong to the "bro country" stance, he's also very much his own man, allowing his faith and values to pull front and center as well. »»»
Just As I Am: Platinum Edition CD review - Just As I Am: Platinum Edition
With the third version of Brantley Gilbert's "Just as I Am," he has almost doubled the average country album track listing. The definitive Platinum Edition contains 19 tracks that feature his trademark rock inflected country sound. The original 11 tracks are still intact, with the addition of the 3 songs from the original deluxe edition. Added on at the end are five new songs that largely fit well with the tone of the album. Those who originally purchased the regular edition »»»
Just As I Am CD review - Just As I Am
Brantley Gilbert's third release is a collection of songs that define who he is as an artist. There is a notable absence of wild experimentation here; these are straightforward songs from the artist who broke through with "Halfway to Heaven." The tattooed country rocker follows in the footsteps of Eric Church's recent hit, "The Outsiders," making a conscious step away from the overproduced hip hop country that artists like Florida Georgia Line are taking to the top of the charts. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Combs, Gill, Harris, Crow comprise one final musical platter – Vince Gill played host to an entertaining guitar pull, a show which also featured his longtime friend, Emmylou Harris, slightly newer friend Sheryl Crow and brand-new friend Luke Combs. Gill joked from the outset that this All for the Hall fundraising show needed Combs to sell tickets, and by the audience's response, it was clear many came only to see Combs.... »»»
Concert Review: Stapleton shows his traditional roots – Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years. He came out with a blazing one-two punch of "Second One To Know" and "Without Your Love" and packed a stadium sized onslaught into a 9,000-seat arena. He never once veered from his... »»»
