Dan + Shay have announced more than 30 tour dates for 2021 as the duo looks to resume their Arena Tour. Their long break will stretch deep into the new year, however — the new dates don’t begin until after Labor Day 2021.
Aside from one summer 2021 festival date, Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney have a clear touring calendar until Sept. 9, when the Arena Tour begins in Greenville, S.C. The “I Should Probably Go to Bed” singers will then span the country through early December, playing three shows most weekends with a break in mid-October.
Dan + Shay waited as long as they could to announce the cancelation of their 2020 tour, but by June it was clear major tours wouldn’t happen be happening this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Of the announced 2021 tours in country music, the duo’s begins the latest (most are starting up in June). Maren Morris’ 2021 RSVP the Tour is set to begin in late April.
“This tour is so important to us. We’ve worked our entire lives to get to this position. You guys have supported us, you’ve given us a platform, you’ve given us the stage to get up there and do what we love every single night,” Smyers says in a video to fans. “We promise when we come back in 2021, the shows will be even bigger and even better than they were before … We are so eager to get back out there for you.”
No details about who might be opening the tour have been released, nor have any new ticket details. “I Should Probably Go to Bed” is the second song from an upcoming project, following their No. 1 cross-genre hit “10,000 Hours” with Justin Bieber.

Dan + Shay Arena Tour FAQ
Are Dan + Shay rescheduling their 2020 tour?
Dan + Shay have announced the rescheduled dates of their headlining tour. Originally set for 2020, the trek was scuttled because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The Arena Tour, as it’s dubbed, will now kick off September 9th, 2021, in Greenville, South Carolina. The tour stretches into early December, with stops in New York, Chicago, Salt Lake City, and Atlanta.
Who are the opening acts for the Dan + Shay Tour?
For their 2020 tour, the two opening acts were Ingrid Andress and The Band Camino. Buzz-worthy newcomer Ingrid Andress opened the show with a brief set introducing selections from her upcoming label debut, Lady Like (releasing Mar. 27, 2020 via Warner Nashville). At first blush, the next opening slot, filled by indie rock act The Band Camino and void of any Country trademarks, might have seemed an odd choice. However, openers have not been announced for the rescheduled tour.
I can’t make the new tour date – can I get a refund for my tickets?
All tickets will be transferable to the newly scheduled dates. The tour asks ticket holders to please hold on to your tickets as they will be honored for the new dates. If you are a ticket holder and cannot make the new show, you will receive an email directly allowing you to request a refund.
