The Adirondack Bank center is thrilled to host the first full capacity concert in Central New York of 2021. On July 30th, the Toby Keith Country Comes To Town Tour hits the stage in Utica.

 Tickets are available now starting as low as $38 at There are NO capacity restrictions, NO testing requirements, and NO mask or social distancing requirements.

The tour is named for his smash hit, which was featured on the How Do You Like Me Now?!  album. Keith put it back in the set list during his 2019 That's Country Bro Tour! to great audience response. Over the course of the year, it occurred to him the song title was a logical tour name. Like so many of his hits, "Country Comes To Town" was written solely by Keith. And its lyrics hit at the party on tap for tour attendees: "You better be ready when the sun goes down, that's when country comes to town."

His songs have received more than 92 million BMI performances on commercial radio stations worldwide, making him the organization’s top country songwriter in terrestrial country radio. Keith's albums have sold more than 40 million copies. His tours have drawn more than a million fans each year for more than a decade straight, with recent expansion into Europe and Australia. The awards are too numerous to count and include Artist of the Decade nods from Billboard and the American Country Awards, as well as the ACM's Career Achievement honor, Poet’s Award recipient, and twice their Entertainer of the Year award winner in back-to-back years.

His 11 USO Tours to date have enhanced the lives of nearly 256,000 troops and military families in 18 countries with more than 285 events, and have been recognized with the Spirit of the USO Award (2014). Many songs Keith has written while on the USO Tours for the military are featured on his 2017 album The Bus Songs, a 12-song collection of humorous, just-for-fun compositions that set a Billboard Comedy Albums chart record for a country artist by holding the No. 1 spot for 11 consecutive weeks. 

Tickets for the show are available now starting at $38. Fans can grab their tickets via the Adirondack Bank Center box office, online at, or by calling 315-790-9070. The show will begin at 8pm.
