TOBY KEITH RETURNS TO THE UK FOR LOCKED AND LOADED 2011 WORLD TOUR

Following the sell-out success of his first ever European shows in 2009, Country Music Superstar, Billboard Magazine’s Country Songwriter & Artist of the Decade and Multi American Country Music award winning Toby Keith has today announced that he will be returning to the Europe this October/November to play 12 shows across the UK, Holland, Germany, Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

Toby Keith’s 2010 American Ride Tour ranked as one of Pollstar's top outings of the year, bringing more than a million fans to venues across the USA, Canada, Korea, Germany, Afghanistan & Kyrgyzstan. The Oklahoma-based singer, songwriter and 2011 ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee has been drawing those kinds of crowds for a decade now, and with Toby Keith’s Locked & Loaded Tour , he'll do it again.

Keith's place as one of music's most successful entertainers is reflected in the eight nominations and two wins he's received in the ACM's most prestigious category – ‘Entertainer of The Year’; since the turn of the millennium. Keith was also up for Best Male Country Vocal Performance at this year’s Grammys for "Cryin' For Me," his tribute to the late Wayman Tisdale.

In fact, few self-contained artists in the history of the recording industry can boast as consistent and long-tenured a run on the charts as Toby Keith. He’s had 70 Million spins as a songwriter, his new album Bullets In The Gun debuted at No. 1 all-genre upon its launch in October 2010, rolling Keith into his 18th-straight year with a chart-topping album and/or single.
