BRAD PAISLEY ANNOUNCES 2012 TOUR NAME CHANGE



“Virtual Reality World Tour 2012” presented by Chevy

With Special Guests The Band Perry and Scotty McCreery

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Jan. 4, 2012) During the month of December Brad Paisley and band had several days of tour rehearsals and it was during the stage set-up and rehearsals that Paisley realized the tour begged to have a new name – “Virtual Reality World Tour 2012” presented by Chevrolet..

“When you see plans and sketches on paper it’s one thing but to actually see it in real life is something else, and that’s what happened to me when we were in tour rehearsals. When I saw the visuals and how exciting and sometimes mind-blowing they were I just felt the tour name needed to reflect what the fans were going to see,” says Paisley. “For two hours each night of the tour they can be taken away from reality - literally.”

The tour kicks-off next week with special guests CMA New Artist of the Year The Band Perry and 2011 American Idol Winner Scotty McCreery. Live Nation is the national tour promoter. Log on to www.bradpaisley.com and www.livenation.com for on-sale and current information.
