Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert will kick off the Locked and Reloaded Tour tonight in Columbia, SC and for Dierks it’s exciting because this will be the first time that he has big production elements and video screens on his stage, which he describes as “a big jungle gym for adults.”  He joked, “We just kind of got the checkbook out and started writing some checks for a new set and let’s get some video and let’s really go all out there and let’s pretend this is the last tour we were ever gonna do.  What would we do?”  Dierks says the important thing was “to find a good blend between keeping the emotion of the show and that rawness of the show there but using a little bit of that video element there to make it fun for us and make it fun for the fans.”  For Dierks and his band, they’ll know they’ve hit the mark when they’re performing the kind of shows they want to sit on the bus talking about until 3 or 4 o’clock in the morning.


Lee Brice, Thomas Rhett and Randy Houser will trade off as the opening act for the tour, which runs through April 12th.  You can see a complete list of dates here.
