FIRST MIDWEST BANK AMPHITHEATRE

19100 S. Ridgeland Ave., Tinley Park, (800) 745-3000, livenation.com.

Toby Keith: Live in Overdrive Tour with Brantley Gilbert and Thomas Rhett at 7 p.m. Sept. 2. Tickets for the Ford F-Series, concert are $24.25 for general-admission lawn, $32.50-$75 for second-pavilion seating, $75-$89 for first-pavilion seating and $89 for general-admission, standing-room-only pit.

From his first No. 1 smash “Should’ve Been A Cowboy” to his country album chart-topper “Clancy’s Tavern,” Keith has been one of the most consistent self-directed hit makers of his era, according to Country Music Television.

His albums have sold more than 36 million copies, ranking him among the top-selling all-genre artists on Billboard’s top 200 Artists of the Decade.

Keith is also Billboard’s No. 1 Artist of the Decade and No. 1 Country Songwriter of the Decade.

He’s in his 19th consecutive year having had a No. 1 single every year since his first release.

This latest collection’s lead single, “Made In America,” topped the charts as one of the fastest-rising songs in a long line of chart burners from Keith’s pen.

The second hit, “Red Solo Cup,” became the most remarkable and commercially successful country single in recent memory with a viral video with more than 15 million views while topping the top downloaded country songs, CMT officials said.

Other singles from “Clancy’s Tavern” have included “Beers Ago” and “I Like Girls That Drink Beer.”
