What songs will Toby Keith play in concert?
With a new album released every single year since 2001, Toby Keith has a ton of material to pull from and plenty of opportunity to rotate material out throughout a tour. For better or worse, he plays it rather safe during each tour. He keeps the setlist consistent from show to show, but changes it around for each tour. This keeps individual tours self contained and driven by a certain theme and style.
Toby Keith has a few overarching images he plays around with, and each tour toys with each one. He can be the good old laid back country drinking boy, the old school cowboy, or the political activist. The theme of the tour this time around seems to slant heavily into the nice Southern drinking boy, and he explores that with fan favorites “Weed with Willie” and the popular show opener, “American Ride.”
Toby Keith closes with the double whammy salute to the troops of “American Solider” and “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue.” He does not always close with the latter, sometimes just playing an extended audience chanting rendition of “American Solider” to close the evening out.

How long is a Toby Keith concert?
A Toby Keith concert is about 90 minutes in length, which is long enough to just get in and get out without overextending one’s welcome. Keith loves to sit and chat with the audience which will extend the set’s length. Most of the songs stay very loyal to their studio counterparts.
Does Toby Keith play any covers?
Country artists have a knack for playing quite a few covers, and they don’t always conform to the same genre as the artist. Keith stays away from covers, at least on the Shut Up & Hold On Tour. He sticks to his own material for the duration of the show. He will rarely play a rendition of Ted Nugent’s “Stranglehold,” but if you hear it, consider it a special treat.
Who is Toby Keith’s publicist and press contact?
Toby Keith works with the TKO Artist management firm. They do not have a public individual specifically attached to Toby Keith as a client, so you may have the best luck asking through the company email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shock Ink is the official publicity and press firm for Toby Keith. Contact Elaine Schock for press releases and media information.
How do I get access to presale tickets for Toby Keith’s tour?
Your first stop for presale tickets is through the Toby Keith fan club. The fan club provides you with more perks, such as bonus website content, merchandise, and contest entrances. You can find a lot to appreciate, for Toby Keith pulls the majority of his shows through the presale option for fan club members. Membership ranges from $25 to $39.99 depending on whether you want a shirt.
Citi card members will have special access to presale tickets. Usually this is accessed by the first six digits of your credit card. In select markets, there are also Facebook and LiveNation presales.
“Toby Keith is a hit machine. He’s got nearly 20 chart toppers and three full albums of greatest hits. So filling 90 minutes with crowd-pleasers is no daunting task for the country superstar. And that’s exactly what he did Friday night at the grandstand at the New York State Fair for a crowd of more than 10,000.” – Chris Baker of Syracuse Entertainment
“It would have been at least as fun and enlightening to have heard more from the more pensive, emotionally nuanced portion of Keith’s catalog. But this night was about celebration. And Harley owner that he is, he made good on maintaining the appropriate spirit.” – Jamie Lee Rake of the Milwaukee Express
“What makes Keith an above-average performer, however, is that he understands his generally conservative audience so intimately that he can get away with a tune like the hysterically autobiographical “I’ll Never Smoke Weed With Willie Again”(which was accompanied by an animated backdrop of marijuana leaves and blunts) without offending them.” – Michele Coppola of Oregon Live
