Toronto, ON (August 31, 2015) – JUNO Award nominee and CCMA Award winner, Tim Hicks announced today that he will headline the 2015 GET A LITTLE CRAZY TOUR beginning November 1 in Sault Ste Marie, ON and continuing across Canada through the end of the month with friends Jason Benoit and Cold Creek County stacking the lineup. The highly praised and top ranked Canadian artist, who built one of country music’s most loyal audiences show by show, and song by song, confirmed that he will hit major markets including Winnipeg, Calgary, London and Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom, with multiple sold out dates expected.
“My favourite part of this crazy life I have is playing live,” said Hicks. “I’m looking forward to some of the best nights of my life out on the road and can guarantee that nobody is going to have more fun than us this fall.”
Fan pre-sale for all shows will begin on Tuesday, September 8 at 10:00 a.m. local time, followed by tickets on sale to the general public on Friday, September 11 at 10:00 a.m. local time. A limited number of VIP ticket packages are available for each date and include a meet and greet and photo with Hicks, access to a pre-show acoustic performance, an autographed set list, commemorative VIP laminate and more.

The “Stronger Beer” hit maker will embark on the Get A Little Crazy Tour in support of 5:01+, set for release on September 4th via Open Road Recordings/Universal Music Canada. 5:01+, a special edition of Hicks’ 2014 critically acclaimed album 5:01, boasts four brand new tracks including the recent radio hit “Young, Alive and In Love” (#YAIL) and features “Here Comes The Thunder” – Hicks’ fan fueled party anthem and fourth GOLD certified single.
With much to celebrate following an electric summer filled with capacity crowds during Hicks’ festival and feature appearances, the 4x GOLD certified artist will perform live on the 2015 Canadian Country Music Association Awards September 13, and will headline the Coors Banquet Kitchen Party during Country Music Week in Halifax on September 11. Garnering three CCMA Award artist nominations (Album of the Year, Male Artist of the Year and Interactive Artist of the Year) and two industry nominations for his most recent album, 5:01 (Album Design of the Year – Mitch Nevins and Producer of the Year – Jeff Coplan), Hicks continues to cement his place as one of country music’s most dynamic breakout artists of the decade.
Hicks’ status as one of country music’s elite is undeniable with a 2015 SOCAN Award for the high-energy hit “Got A Feeling”, a 2014 CCMA award for Rising Star and two JUNO Award nominations for debut album “Throw Down”. Critics’ opinion parallels fan enthusiasm in Hicks’ world where he boasts seven top 10 singles, over 5 million YouTube hits and a #1 debut on the SoundScan Country Album sales chart with the August 2014 release of “5:01”. Earlier this month, Hicks announced that he’ll take his high octane show to Australia for the first time in March (2016) joining Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line and more for two shows at the CMC Rocks QLD Festival in Queensland.
