Brantley Gilbert has announced the initial cities and dates for a 2016 summer road trek he's calling the Take It Outside Tour.

The singer-songwriter has just kicked off his current Black Out World Tour, playing to capacity crowds in Michigan over the weekend. He's already looking forward to the summer with a string of dates that will feature Justin Moore and Colt Ford on the bill.

“We’re just getting started bringing the music to the people,” Gilbert says in a press release. “We hit that stage in Saginaw, and the crowd was lit up. Makes you wanna hit the road, and stay out there — when the people are so raging. We knew when we did this arena tour, we were gonna wanna take it outside! We don’t have all the dates in place, but I want the fans in these markets to know I’m coming.”

The Take It Outside Tour commences June 2 in Mansfield, Mass., at XFinity Center. So far 22 dates have been announced, with more on the way, playing in amphitheaters across the country. Gilbert, Moore and Ford are all friends, and they have collaborated or toured together before, so fans can look forward to a high-energy evening onstage.

“We’ve all done so many things together,” Gilbert explains. “This is one of those tours that’ll be crazy before it even rolls. Justin likes to really push the limits, and he’s a pretty serious performer. Colt is one of those guys who gets how to hit a crowd right between the eyes. If you love your  country on the rougher side, this is gonna be a show for you.”
