Uncle Kracker Tour News and Updates
2014 Under the Sun Tour
Matthew Shafer, better known as Uncle Kracker, can do it all. The Detroit-native combines country, rock and rap into tunes you can't miss on the radio, or at summer parties and tailgates across the country. Songs like "Follow Me," "Smile" and "Drift Away" showcase Uncle Kracker's signature style: crafting music that sounds easy and breezy, but requires gifted songwriting ability and work ethic in the studio.
Uncle Kracker got his start in music thanks to longtime buddy Kid Rock, who Shafer has written for and toured with along the length of his career. He also released successful crossover single "When the Sun Goes Down" with friend and mentor Kenny Chesney. As a member of Kid Rock's Twisted Trucker Band, Shafer honed his rap-country roots and turntable skills before releasing an album of his own, dubbed Double Wide, in 2001. After all the years of throwing raucous parties on stage with Kid Rock, you know you're in for a night of huge entertainment when you buy Uncle Kracker tickets!
The multi-talented musician's latest release was Midnight Special, his fifth studio album promoted on the road with Kid Rock. This year, Uncle Kracker is linking up with another awesome crew. The "Smile" singer will join fellow alterna-pop rockers that ruled the radio in the late 90s and early 00s on the highly anticipated "Under the Sun" Tour! Uncle Kracker will join Sugar Ray, Smash Mouth, Gin Blossoms, Vertical Horizon and more on the can't-miss nostalgia tour of the year. Score Uncle Kracker tickets for "Under the Sun" from July 3 in Park City to Aug 12 in Los Angeles.
