From a press release:

Solidifying their superstar status with yet another career milestone, Grammy Award-winning country music duo Dan + Shay have announced dates for their first-ever headlining arena trek, Dan + Shay The (Arena) Tour, which includes a stop at the Giant Center in Hershey on Sunday, Oct. 11, 2020.

Tickets, which start at $39.50, go on sale this Friday, Oct. 11 at 10 a.m. and will only be available online at for the first day. Tickets can also be purchased at the Giant Center box office (550 Hersheypark Dr., Hershey) starting next week.

Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney shared the touring announcement today just days after unveiling a brand new collaboration with one of the world’s bestselling pop icons, Justin Bieber, for their latest single, “10,000 Hours.” The duo co-wrote the song with Bieber alongside Jessie Jo Dillon, Jordan Reynolds, and Jason “Poo Bear” Boyd. The undeniably catchy track was also produced by Smyers and promises a lifetime of learning and loving as his and Mooney’s flawless harmonies trade verses with Bieber’s smooth vocals.

In its first 48 hours of availability, “10,000 Hours” has already tallied more than 30 million streams globally. Ranked at No. 5 on Spotify’s Top 200 global chart and No. 2 on their Top 200 U.S. chart, it also appears in 45 charts globally, arriving at No. 1 on China’s Netease chart and No. 2 on China’s QQ Music Chart. The track is No. 3 on Apple Music’s Top 100 global chart and has kept the No. 1 spot on the iTunes Top Songs chart since it was released, with the official music video reaching No. 3 on YouTube’s Trending chart, which includes all videos on YouTube.

Fans can expect to hear the duo’s growing catalog of hits from their most recent album, “Dan + Shay,” which has held strong in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart all year, earning over two billion on-demand streams globally to date. The record-breaking project produced three back-to-back chart-topping singles – the three-times platinum multi-week No. 1 “Tequila,” two-times platinum four-week No. 1 “Speechless” and, most recently, the gold-certified “All to Myself.”

In addition to a string of No. 1 hits, the album rewarded the duo with their first-ever Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance (“Tequila”), with their performance on the live broadcast becoming the most Shazamed song of the night. They were the-most awarded artist at this year’s ACM Awards, taking home three awards for Best Duo, Song, and Single (“Tequila”), with Smyers earning an additional two for his work as a songwriter and producer. Dan + Shay also added a Billboard Music Award for Top Country Duo/Group to their shelves, most recently taking home two surfboards at the Teen Choice Awards for Choice Country Artist and Choice Country Song (“Speechless”) after sweeping the country categories.

Among the most-nominated artists at this year’s CMA Awards, Dan + Shay are up for Duo, Album, and Single of the Year for “Speechless,” with Smyers receiving an additional nomination for Song of the Year as a co-writer alongside Nicolle Galyon and Jordan Reynolds on “Tequila” for the second year. Earlier this year, CMT awarded them the Duo Video of the Year trophy for “Speechless” and recently announced their inclusion as one of the top country superstars of 2019 to be celebrated at their 10th annual “CMT Artists of the Year” special, airing next Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 8 p.m.

Dan + Shay The (Arena) Tour follows their sold-out Dan + Shay The Tour earlier this year. The duo just wrapped their time on Florida Georgia Line’s Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour that stopped at The Pavilion at Montage Mountain in Scranton on Aug. 16 and will join superstar Shawn Mendes later this month on his self-titled tour in Australia.
