While finishing up the last few dates of the Somewhere on a Beach Tour, Dierks Bentley is kicking and ready to get on the road for 2017 as he announced that he will be taking his What the Hell Tour around the world.

Starting off in January with the first date planned for Dayton, Ohio, Bentley has the U.S. and Canada lined up until April. Wanting to keep the energy fresh rather than letting the beginning of the new year go to waste, the country superstar is anxiously awaiting the next tour with great excitement.

“Coming off the electricity and emotion of two nights at Red Rocks last week, it felt right to just go ahead and announce plans for next year and keep this thing rolling,” Bentley said in a press release recently. “There’s a song on my album called ‘What The Hell Did I Say’ and it seemed like an appropriate title for a tour with Cole [Swindell] and [Jon] Pardi. I have a feeling I’ll be asking myself that question the morning after many of our shows and late night hangs because you really don’t know what will happen when the three of us get together. There has been a lot of drunk calls and texts between all of us over the last year trying to make this tour happen, and I’m excited we were able to pull it off.”

As Bentley said, he decided to handpick Cole Swindell and Jon Pardi as his tour mates for the What the Hell World Tour and shared with People Magazine that he wanted to create a family atmosphere on the road since he misses the home lifestyle when he’s traveling. With artists like Swindell and Pardi though, it’s sure to be a roaring good time out there as well.

The promotional announcement video to let fans know about the tour, posted exclusively to People, showed off all of the artists’ joking personalities with a little unnecessary censorship a la Jimmy Kimmel Live! infused into past interviews and performances. If that doesn’t sell fans on the world tour, who knows what will for those three funny guys.

Tickets for the What the Hell World Tour 2017 go on pre-sale for select dates tomorrow, October 4, and general sales start on Friday, October 7. Fans can find more information and tour details on Bentley’s website.
