Rupp Arena is on a roll. Days after announcing shows by Dave Chappelle (Sept. 12) and Tyler Childers (Dec. 30 and 31), the venue announced another big artist this morning. Country music superstar Tim McGraw will bring his “Standing Room Only” tour to Rupp on Saturday, June 15, 2024. Carly Pearce will join him as a special guest. Pearce, a Taylor Mill, Kentucky native, sang the national anthem at the Kentucky Derby in May.

The show may be a year away, but tickets go on sale one week from today, Friday, August 4 at 10 a.m. on, according to Live Nation. You can buy VIP packages that day as well, including options to meet McGraw, who last came to Rupp Arena in June 2018 for a concert with his wife, Faith Hill.

Kudos to Rupp Arena for bringing in some big names. Here are just a few of the top acts coming to the home of Kentucky Basketball over the next year:

  • Sept. 6: Guns N’ Roses
  • Sept. 12: Dave Chappelle
  • Sept. 26: Jonas Brothers
  • Oct. 10: Jelly Roll
  • Nov. 14: Eagles
  • Dec. 30-31: Tyler Childers
