The Old Friends Acoustic Tour starring Ben Rector

April 21, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Indie superstar Ben Rector announces forthcoming tour, “The Old Friends Acoustic Tour” — set to bring intimate, acoustic performances to fourteen cities across the country in spring 2023 including a tour stop at DPAC on Friday, April 21, 2023.

The tour will feature Jordy Searcy and Stephen Day who will perform individually as opening acts and together with Rector during the main event. Searcy has also collaborated with Rector as a co-writer on tracks such as the 2021 hit single “It Would Be You” and Rector’s most recent release, “Wonderful World”.

“I am so excited for the Old Friends Acoustic Tour! I started out playing shows in college with just me and a guitar, and I haven’t gotten to do a tour like that since then,” the singer-songwriter reflects. “The chance to perform the songs how I wrote them and give a little bit of backstory is something I’m really looking forward to, and getting to do it with friends as talented as Jordy and Stephen is a dream.”

Rector recently sold out the majority of amphitheaters nationwide on his most recent headlining tour, The Joy of Music – A Live Music Event including a sold out show at Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville. He masterfully created “chilling, harmonious moments” Music Row with the audience as they “drown[ed] in his charisma” Music Row and danced joyously to both new and old fan favorites. Since then, Rector has released two original singles, “Wonderful World” and “What Makes A Man” featuring Thomas Rhett, the latter of which he played at his Grand Ole Opry debut in August.
