Kip Moore is hitting the road this fall!
Moore announced his concert comeback with the How High Tour. This marks his first tour since his dates prior to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. The tour will kick off on October 14 in Chicago, Illinois and will go across the United States before concluding in San Diego, California on December 18.
Fans can purchase tickets beginning this Friday, May 14 at 10 AM local time on his official website.
“The live show has been a massive part of everything we’ve built up until this point,” Moore says in a press release. “We brought out a full record this past year and so it’s been a huge priority to get this tour scheduled so we can get out there and play those songs with the people who supported ‘Wild World.'”
Moore teased performances of new music like his latest single at country radio, “Good Life.”
“Working on the music video for the single was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had making a video,” he shares. “We really just went for it and let our inhibitions go.”

Kip Moore on The Importance of Touring
In an exclusive interview with Outsider’s The Road You Leave Behind with Marty Smith, Kip Moore spoke about the role that live music played in our lives prior to the pandemic. Without touring, the fan attention focused on singles and records. He released Wild World during the global lockdown.
“Well, I think it simply is one of those things where attention was shifted,” Moore said. “And not being able to get out and play was one of the main nails in the coffin. I had no way of getting your attention on it. And I’m not somebody to do a whole lot of social media, period.”
Moore knows that the secret to any artist’s success and the attention of new fans comes down to touring. He recalled attending concerts where he didn’t know the bands prior to entry. Once the shows finished, he immediately downloaded their discographies, since that is the impact that live music has.
“So, for me, not being able to play around the release of that record was super detrimental,” he shared.
Kip Moore’s goal was to tie people over until live music could be played safely once again.
“So, I’m just bringing people’s attention back, because I know we’re going to get out and do some shows this summer and fall,” said Moore. “And just try to hold you over until something’s coming.”
