McGraw, Hill plan 2012 tour
THE reigning king and queen of country music - Tim McGraw and Faith Hill - will tour Australia for the first time together next March.
The Tim McGraw & Faith Hill / Australia 2012 tour will be the first time the country music superstars have toured together outside of North America and will also be Hill’s first time touring Australia.
The tour will feature the duo's massive hits including Live Like You Were Dying, Everywhere, Real Good Man, Breathe, This Kiss and The Way You Love Me, as well as duets It’s Your Love, Let’s Make Love and I Need You.
In addition to their already-announced headlining performance at CMC Rocks the Hunter, the six-concert tour will play a night in each Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney, and two nights in Brisbane.
Tim McGraw & Faith Hill / Australia 2012 will be only the fourth time the power couple have toured together and marks almost five years since their last combined tour.
The couple's 2006/2007 tours was the highest-grossing country music tour of all time, and the highest-grossing that year, beating out the likes of Madonna, Tom Petty and Crosby, Stills & Nash.
The long-awaited Tim McGraw & Faith Hill / Australia 2012 tour kicks off at the Burswood Dome in Perth on March 14, plays the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on March 16, CMC Rocks the Hunter on March 18, the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne on March 20, the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on March 23 & 24 and wraps up at Sydney’s Allphones Arena on March 27 (Sydney’s Acer Arena became Allphones Arena on September 1).
McGraw and Hill have been dominating the charts since the early 90s, and have produced 70 million record sales, 8 Grammys and 46 US number one singles between them.
Hill, a multi-platinum crossover artist, has performed at the famed Super Bowl twice, The Academy Awards and The Grammy Awards.
McGraw returns to Australia following his Southern Voice tour in 2010. McGraw’s Brisbane Entertainment Centre concert sold out within fifteen minutes, shows in Sydney and Melbourne followed suit, and promoters added a second Brisbane and an outdoor show in Townsville.
