Another road trip worthy concert this summer has been announced. Sam Hunt will make a stop just shy of Maine.

Sam Hunt is hitting the road this summer. The "23" singer will bring his Live 2022 Tour to the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, New Hampshire. The show is set for August 20. Ryan Hurd and Lily Rose will open the show.

Tickets are on-sale now.

The tour schedule says "more dates to be announced!" So Maine fans can at least hope for a Bangor tour stop. Sam was to perform at the Bangor Waterfront Pavilion back in 2020. The show was ultimately canceled due to COVID-19.

More road trip worthy shows the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion include a tour stop from Maren Morris, Willie Nelson, Jon Pardi, two nights with Kane Brown, Morgan Wallen, Luke Bryan, and Thomas Rhett. Wallen announced his tour plans back in November, with tickets to his two New Hampshire nights selling-out fast. Resale tickets are available, but are selling for A LOT more than the original price.

Thomas Rhett announced his Bring The Bar To You Tour back in January, which will kick-off at the New Hampshire venue. The shows are set for June 17 and 18, 2022. Parker McCollum and Conner Smith will open the show. Tickets are on-sale now.

Luke Bryan released his summer tour plans earlier this month. The "Up" singer will hit the road in June on the Raised Up Right Tour, which makes a two night stop July 28, and 29. Riley Green and Mitchell Tenpenny will open the shows. Tickets for the July 28 show are still available. Luke's show on the 29th has since sold-out.

Both Luke Bryan and Thomas Rhett were last in Bangor back in 2021. The shows were originally scheduled for the summer of 2020.
