On October 4, during a surprise performance at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill announced Soul2Soul The World Tour 2017, kicking off in New Orleans on April 7, 2017. The 65-city tour celebrates the 10th anniversary of the record-breaking Soul2Soul II Tour, the highest-grossing country music tour of all time, and the first time Hill has toured since 2007. Soul2Soul The World Tour 2017 visits Orlando’s Amway Center on Saturday, October 21, 2017. The Amway Center pre-sale begins Wednesday, October 26 at 10 a.m. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, October 28 at 10 a.m.
"We have the best fans in the world, who have been with us through our entire journey and we are so excited to celebrate with them by going back on the road and showcasing an exciting new show,” said McGraw and Hill. “It’s always great when we get to work together and it’s been a while since we got to do that.”
McGraw and Hill have been dominating the music charts since the early ‘90s. They began touring together in 1996 on McGraw’sSpontaneous Combustion Tour. In 2000, they created the Soul2Soul franchise with their record-breaking “Soul2Soul” tour, becoming that year’s top grossing and most successful U.S. tour. Their success continued in 2006-2007 when “Soul2Soul II” returned to the road, which was the most attended tour of the year in any musical genre and remains the highest grossing multi-year North American tour in country music history. Pollstar Magazine named it their “Major Tour of 2006,” beating out Madonna, The Rolling Stones and the Red Hot Chili Peppers for the honor.
McGraw has sold more than 50 million records worldwide and dominated the singles charts with a stunning 41 number one singles. He is currently riding the Billboard Country Airplay chart with three singles in the top 20, a feat he was the first to achieve, and now the first to achieve for a second time. He is the most played country artist since his debut in 1992, with two singles spending over 10 weeks at number one (“Live Like You Were Dying” and the genre-breaking, “Over and Over”). His recent multi-week number one single, “Humble and Kind,” off his “Damn Country Music” album, is his 59th release to hit top 10 or better, and he also produced a New York Times Best Seller book.McGraw’s film credits include blockbusters, “Friday Night Lights” and “The Blind Side.” Next year, he will also appear in the feature film, “The Shack.”
In addition to multiple nominations and five Grammy® Awards, Hill has won an impressive list of awards, including several Billboard Music, American Music, People’s Choice and Country Music Association Awards. She has consistently broken chart records with her number one singles and has had major crossover success with the hits, “This Kiss,” “Breathe,” “Cry” and “There You’ll Be.” She has had multiple albums top both the Billboard Top 100 and country charts simultaneously and has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. She has had three network TV specials that garnered top ratings and has appeared and performed on every major award show, including twice on the prestigious Academy Awards. In 2000, Hill performed the National Anthem to a global audience of over 88.5 million viewers at Super Bowl XXXIV in Atlanta and is the only country artist and one of only three artists ever to perform both “The Star Spangled Banner” and “God Bless America” at Super Bowls. This fall, Hill, alongside former “Oprah” co-executive producer and OWN executive, Lisa Erspamer, will co-produce an innovative new daytime, lifestyle show based in Nashville.
