One of the best-selling music duos of all time, Brooks and Dunn, recently announced their return to the road with the REBOOT 2023 TOUR LIVE and they’re coming to South Mississippi.
Brooks and Dunn with special guests Scotty McCreery and Megan Moroney will play the Mississippi Coast Coliseum on Friday, May 19th. Pre-sale tickets will launch Thursday morning and the public on-sale begins this Friday, Jan. 27th at 10 a.m., local time.
The new tour is set for 17 cities at present. The show will of course feature multiple timeless hits, and kicks off in Kansas City, Mo., on May 4th. The trek is produced by Live Nation.
“Last year, you all reminded us just how much fun it is to walk out on that stage and share the night with ya! We love what we do, but we’re just surfing your wave …can’t wait!!” said Kix Brooks, in a press release.
“The Brooks and Dunn posse rides again,” said Ronnie Dunn, in the same release. “More excited to hit the big stage as we ever have been! Unbelievable band of friends.…annnnnd YOU! Together, let’s rock the house!!”

Fans can also purchase VIP Packages, which may include premium tickets, invitations to the Neon Lounge, an exclusive poster signed by Kix and Ronnie, VIP merchandise gift & more.
“Having been a huge fan of their music all my life, going out on the road with Kix and Ronnie is a dream come true for me,” said McCreery, in a press release. “I can’t wait for this tour to begin!”
With 20 No. 1 hits stretching back to 1991, two Grammy Awards, dozens of Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association honors and a discography counting more album sales than any duo in history – regardless of genre – Brooks & Dunn’s influence on today’s country music has never been in question.
Hits like “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” “My Maria” and “Believe” have propelled the duo to more than 30 million albums sold, with the New York Times heralding “together they helped drive the power-country era of the early-to-mid 1990s and continued to benefit from the sea change in the genre they helped initiate right through their most recent albums.”
Their original “Merle Haggard meets The Rolling Stones” vibe made them progressive stars in their own right, according to their website. The duo’s recently released collaboration project REBOOT debuted atop the Billboard Top Country Albums. The impressive feat marks the first time the duo has topped the album charts since 2009 while simultaneously earning the duo their 10th Billboard 200 Top 10 album, the most of any country duo or group in the chart’s history. In 2019 the duo was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in the “Modern Era Artist” category.
