Luke Combs is thrilled to be hitting the road again in 2021. After a long hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the talented “Does to Me” singer is set to kick off his What You See Is What You Get 2021 Tour in June, starting in New Mexico and spanning across 31 cities in America.

The Rescheduled What You See Is What You Get 2021 Tour
The What You See Is What You Get 2021 Tour includes all the shows from 2020 that had to be postponed because of the pandemic. While Drew Parker and Ashley McBryde opened the first leg of the 2020 tour, it remains uncertain whether they will be joining Combs on the 2021 tour as well. Keep an eye out for updates on the complete list of tour dates, as more shows may be added or rescheduled.
A Title Inspired by Combs’ Acclaimed Album
The tour is aptly named after Combs’ highly successful 2019 album, “What You See Is What You Get.” This album features chart-topping hits such as “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” “Does to Me,” and “Even Though I’m Leaving.” Combs’ latest single, “Lovin’ on You,” is also part of this project, which includes collaborations with country music legends Brooks & Dunn and Eric Church.
Luke Combs Shares His Disappointment and Excitement
Expressing his disappointment about the interrupted tour, Combs took to Twitter to share his thoughts: “Never in a million years did I think the show I played in Europe this past March would be the last headlining show I’d play this year. Believe me, I’m just as bummed as y’all are… Playing shows for y’all is what I love to do, but I want y’all to be completely safe, so we’re rescheduling all of the shows that were scheduled for the rest of this year to 2021. The new dates are listed below, and tickets already purchased for previous dates will be valid for new dates. I can’t wait to see y’all in person next year.”
Warmup Shows and Tour Break
Before the official tour begins in 2021, Combs has a few dates scheduled as warmups. He will be performing at the C2C Festival in Europe and the Winstock Country Music Festival in Minnesota. However, unless there are winter dates announced before next June, the 15-month-long tour break will come to an end with these warmup shows. It is anticipated that many headlining artists will have comparable breaks in 2020 and 2021. Most of the rescheduled shows are slated for the fall of next year. As the first artist to announce the postponement of all 2020 concerts until next summer, Combs is setting a precedent.
