Four-time Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan will bring his “Sunset Repeat Tour” to Harveys Outdoor Arena on Sunday, Aug. 25. Singer-songwriter Jon Langston will open the concert, the second 2019 show announced this week for the popular summer series.

On sale information will be coming soon. Tickets will be $69.50 and $149.50, plus tax and fees. Bryan’s show sold out last summer.

Bryan is a two-time Academy of Country Music and a two-time Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year, a five-time host of the ACM Awards. He has more certified digital singles than any other country artist, with 40 million tracks and 12 million albums with three billion music streams. Bryan has placed 21 singles at No. 1, 11 of which he co-wrote, and has headlined arena tours and sold-out stadiums across the U.S. and Canada.

In each of the last several years, Bryan’s headline tours have performed for 1.5 million fans or more. In 2018, Luke played the most stadium dates in one year and has played 34 career stadium concerts to date.

Loganville, Georgia native Langston, 27, grew up on music from the like of his heroes Alan Jackson and the Eagles. And once multiple concussions ended his Division I college football career, he worked to develop his own style and sound while drawing from that variety of influences.

In 2013 with the release of his first song, “Forever Girl,” Langston’s live shows began to grow, and he found himself opening for Chase Rice at Georgia’s Kennesaw State University. It was his first-ever full band show, and when the crowd sang “Forever Girl” along with him, Langston knew he wanted to pursue a career in music.

On Tuesday, Harveys announced the first confirmed concert for the 2019 summer series. The Dave Matthews Band will perform on Friday, Sept. 6, its fourth appearance in the Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena. The first three shows were sellouts.

“We should have more announcements in the not-too-distant future,” said John Packer, the Harveys-Harrah’s public affairs chief. “February and March will be popping.”

Packer said the country shows typically are the earliest announcements.
