In preparation for the launch of his headlining 2014 RISER TOUR next week, Dierks Bentley is giving fans the opportunity to “Rise Up Line Up” for upcoming tour dates. The interactive program will roll out in each tour market over the coming weeks on, giving ticket holders the opportunity earn points and move to the front of a virtual line to win upgraded tickets.

“When I was in my 20’s, I could only afford a lawn ticket to the big shows because I had to save my money for beer once I got in the gate,” laughed Bentley.  “This is a cool way to give the fans an opportunity to get up closer to the stage and maybe even get them involved in the show.  I just can’t wait to get out there and get it going!”

Bentley’s RISER TOUR kicks off in Charlotte, NC (5/9) and Raleigh, NC (5/10) with special guests Chris Young, Chase Rice and Jon Pardi.  For a full list of upcoming tour dates, visit
