Paisley bags Cammobunga! tour for Virtual Reality

Thursday, January 5, 2012 – The Camobunga! 2012 World Tour of Brad Paisley, slated to start next week, is history. Paisley isn't bagging the tour - he changed the title to the Virtual Reality World Tour 2012.

During December, Paisley and band had several days of tour rehearsals. During the stage set-up and rehearsals, Paisley realized the tour needed a new name.

"When you see plans and sketches on paper it's one thing, but to actually see it in real life is something else, and that's what happened to me when we were in tour rehearsals. When I saw the visuals and how exciting and sometimes mind-blowing they were, I just felt the tour name needed to reflect what the fans were going to see," said Paisley. "For two hours each night of the tour, they can be taken away from reality - literally."

The tour kicks-off next week with special guests CMA New Artist of the Year The Band Perry and 2011 American Idol Winner Scotty McCreery.

CD reviews for Brad Paisley

CD review - Wheelhouse Brad Paisley isn't content to keep doing the same old. In fact, this is probably the least traditional country outing in his career. Yet, a few things remain intact - great guitar playing and singing and a sense of humor without being too kitschy. In fact, Paisley manages to combine the ultra serious with his typical sense of humor. The seriousness is never more apparent from Paisley than on the controversial Accidental Racist with LL Cool J, who helped write and perform it. ...
CD review - Hits Alive Brad Paisley's new live hits CD is a bit of a tease. That's because it only goes half way in replicating the true live Paisley experience. Watching the accompanying concert videos at a Paisley show, whether the venue screen is showing Andy Griffith during Waitin' on a Woman or the montage of recently-deceased celebrities that accompanies When I Get Where I'm Going, reveal how Paisley simply must be seen to be fully enjoyed. Nevertheless, Paisley in concert and captured on ...
CD review - American Saturday Night Brad Paisley has grown up on his eighth album. Yes, the West Virginian maintains a sense of humor, but apparently aging has left its mark on a maturing singer who has never forsaken his country roots. That is ever so apparent in songs like Anything Like Me and Oh Yeah, You're Gone. The former finds Paisley looking at the passage of time through his son's life in a tender, but not sappy look. On the latter, he's a five-year-old boy who doesn't get what he wants, which his grandfather notices. ...
