kelsea ballerini tour santa barbara

Bursting onto the stage with a mixture of sunshine and sass, the contagious exuberance of country pop singer-songwriter Kelsea Ballerini is hard to resist. The 29-year-old performer from Knoxville, TN, has been writing songs and performing since she was a young child, and her ease and enjoyment on stage was palpable from the moment she danced into the Santa Barbara Bowl on June 16, her shimmery bright-yellow minidress and boots the perfect punctuation marks to her high-energy performance. 

The first part of her catchy set included “If You Go Down (I’m Goin’ Down Too)” (check out the hilariously kitschy video here ), “The Little Things,” and “Love Me Like You Mean It,” all of which gave me serious Taylor Swift vibes.

Ballerini has been quoted crediting Swift for introducing her to country music, and many of her lyrics, along with the high-pitched screams in the audience, indicate she’s definitely another girls’ girl, giving violinist Caitlin Evanson (who has also played with Swift) her time to shine with a lovely solo. That was performed while Ballerini changed into a sparkly red mini and matching boots (her second of four cute costume changes) to perform another rollercoaster song of the heart, “Love Is a Cowboy.” That was followed by her 2020 hit “Half of My Hometown” (the recording featured fellow Knoxville native Kenny Chesney), an ode to growing up in a small town and reflecting on it once you’ve been out in the big world for a while.

One of my favorite segments, and certainly one of the most unique in these parts, was Ballerini dancing up into the audience with a saucy rendition of “You’re Drunk, Go Home,” and then jumping onto what she dubbed “the B Stage” (a small platform near the soundboard), to sing “Hole in the Bottle,” a classic song about nursing heartbreak with drinking, followed by Ballerini taking a shot of tequila with a very excited woman she chose out of the audience. 

You don’t see that every night at the Bowl.

Another definite highlight of the evening was one of the quieter moments: the sweet, reflective, and beautiful song “Better Version,” performed (apparently for the first time in concert) as a duet with FLETCHER, a talented and charismatic singer-songwriter and close friend of Ballerini’s who is currently touring with “Meet Her at the Bar,” designed to raise awareness and money for queer spaces. Look up her music — I hadn’t heard it before, but it’s now on my playlist. 

That slower pace didn’t last long, as Ballerini launched into an energetic and entertaining last stretch with “Weather,” “Peter Pan,” “I Guess They Call It Fallin’,” “Penthouse,” “Miss Me More,” and her trademark finale, “I’m Doing My Best.” 

Her best was pretty damn good.

Kelsea Ballerini

Three-time GRAMMY® Award nominee and multiple ACM and CMA Award winning multiplatinum songwriter, producer and author Kelsea Ballerini will launch the third leg of her exclusive  HEARTFIRST Tour  in June. Notably, the third leg kicks off at the Santa Barbara Bowl on Friday, June 16.  

The tour announcement comes in the midst of a career-defining week for Ballerini who is set to make her  Saturday Night Live  debut as a musical guest alongside host Travis Kelce this Saturday, March 4. She is also fresh off the surprise release of her intimate six-song EP  Rolling Up the Welcome Mat  (Black River) on February 14. The EP, along with an accompanying short film written and directed by Ballerini, marks the multi-platinum star’s most intimate and honest work to date. The project became an instant hit with fans and debuted to universal acclaim from everyone from  The New York Times  to  Variety  to  Rolling Stone  and more.  

The  HEARTFIRST Tour  will be a prime opportunity to catch Kelsea’s full headline set—following a handful of dates on  The Judds: The Final Tour . Meanwhile, she’ll spend the rest of the Spring on Kenny Chesney’s  I Go Back Tour .  

Be on the lookout for more from Kelsea Ballerini in 2023! 

About Kelsea Ballerni: 

Kelsea Ballerini has consistently made history. With the release of her debut album  The First Time  (Black River), she became the “only female country artist to hit #1 with the first three consecutive singles from a debut album.” This history-making feat helped earn the honeyed alto a Best New Artist GRAMMY nomination. She has logged five back-to-back Top 10 entries on the  Billboard Top Country Albums  chart, including the platinum-selling  The First Time  [2015], gold- selling Unapologetically  [2017], gold-selling  kelsea  [2020],  ballerini  [2020], and  SUBJECT TO CHANGE  [2022]. With seven #1 singles and 31 certifications from the RIAA to date, her catalog boasts a string of essential smashes such as the double-platinum “Miss Me More” and “Peter Pan,” platinum-selling “half of my hometown” feat. Kenny Chesney and “hole in the bottle” with Shania Twain, and gold-selling “I Quit Drinking” with LANY. Among dozens of accolades thus far, she has garnered three GRAMMY® Award nominations, won two ACM Awards, picked up two CMA Awards, took home the iHeartRadio Music Awards honor for “Best New Artist,” and received multiple career nominations from the ACM Awards, American Music Awards, CMA Awards, CMT Awards, and People’s Choice Awards.  

She concluded 2021 as the “#3 most-played female artist on country radio” and CMT “Artist of the Year” in addition to picking up “Musical Event of the Year” and “Video of the Year” at the CMA Awards for “half of my hometown.” Kelsea scored a nomination in the category of “Single of the Year” at the 2022 CMA Awards for “half of my hometown,” and she notched a People’s Choice Awards nomination for “Country Artist of 2022.” Kelsea led the field for 2022 CMT Music Awards nominations with three nominations for “Video of The Year,” “Collaborative Video of The Year” and “CMT Performance of The Year.” Not to mention, she snagged a nomination for “Music Event of the Year” for the 2022 ACM Awards as both artist and producer of “half of my hometown.” This marked Kelsea’s first ACM nomination as a producer.  

Expanding her sphere of influence, she authored her first original book of poetry  Feel Your Way Through , and Dolly Parton tapped her to star in the audiobook of  Run, Rose, Run . In April 2022, Kelsea co-hosted the CMT Awards on CBS nationwide. On top of this, the multi-platinum country superstar was named the newest face of COVERGIRL. She has joined the brand in a multi-year partnership and is set to launch a cosmetic collaboration with the brand in 2023. She was inducted as a member of the famed Grand Ole Opry in 2019. At the time, she notably became the Opry’s youngest member in its nearly 100-year history since being founded in 1925.  With these accolades, it is no wonder NPR proclaimed, “Kelsea Ballerini is definitely one of the most influential women in the country right now… she’s defining the sound of the genre.”  

Kelsea’s fourth album,  SUBJECT TO CHANGE , arrived on September 23, 2022. The first single “HEARTFIRST,” quickly took over airwaves as the “most added song at country radio” the week of its release and was recently certified gold by the RIAA. Most recently, Kelsea earned a GRAMMY® nomination for “Best Country Solo Performance” for “HEARTFIRST.” Kelsea surprised fans with the release of her intimate six-song EP  Rolling Up the Welcome Mat  (Black River) on February 14, 2023. The EP, along with an accompanying short film written and directed by Ballerini, marks the multi-platinum star’s most intimate and honest work to date. The project became an instant hit with fans and debuted to universal acclaim from everyone from  The New York Times  to  Variety  to  Rolling Stone  and more. Kelsea Ballerini is ready to continue making history in 2023 and beyond. 

“strikingly candid new EP … The boldness of her confessionalism is paired with a sparse, airy new sound, full of echoing synthesizer chords, naturalistic sounds and plenty of empty space, evoking the home that Ballerini is suddenly learning to fill on her own.”  -  The New York Times   

“Moving and intimate” -  Rolling Stone 

“Ballerini’s music is stripped back to just a vulnerable guitar-vocal, her voice peaceful and hopeful, like the first glimpses of a sunrise after a long, dark night.” –  Billboard

Kelsea Ballerini poses in a provocative outfit.

Fresh off her musical guest appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” Kelsea Ballerini is heading right back to the road for 18 more shows.

From March 6 through July 1, the country star will travel all over the country as part of her ongoing ‘Heartfirst Tour.’

The tour, which began in late 2022, had to be extended to the spring and summer due to overwhelming demand.

Soon after, concerts began selling out.

“WELL THIS ESCALATED QUICKLY,” Ballerini gushed on Instagram . “As if i couldn’t have been more excited to get back on the road…you’re selling these out already?! ok brb going to make the show extra special now.”

This time around, she’ll be hitting the northeast when she stops into Atlantic City’s Etess Arena at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on March 17.

And if you need last-minute tickets, they’re surprisingly still available — even for the sold-out shows.

Some can even be scooped up for as low as $55 before fees on Vivid Seats.

Want to find the show closest to you? Or would you like to see Ballerini open for Kenny Chesney on his upcoming “I Go Back Tour?”

Keep reading. We’ve got everything you need to know and more below.

All prices are subject to fluctuation and were found at the time of publication.

Kelsea Ballerini 2023 tour schedule

A complete calendar including all tour dates, venues and links to the cheapest tickets available for each show can be found below.

(Note: The New York Post confirmed all above prices at the publication time. All prices are subject to fluctuation and include additional fees at checkout .)

Vivid Seats is a verified secondary market ticketing platform, and prices may be higher or lower than face value, depending on demand. 

They offer a 100% buyer guarantee that states your transaction will be safe and secure and your tickets will be delivered prior to the event.

Kenny Chesney’s ‘I Go Back’ Tour

There isn’t just one tour on Ballerini’s 2023 schedule.

This year, she’ll also open for Kenny Chesney on his spring ‘I Go Back Tour’ from March 23 through May 27.

The tour isn’t your typical Chesney trek though.

Rather than hit stadiums, Chesney will hit off the beaten path venues this spring.

“I decided rather than just go repeat what we did on this summer’s stadium tour, I wanted to take this band and these songs to a lot of the cities we played on our way up, call it the I Go Back Tour and do just that,” Chesney shared on  Instagram .

You can find his entire tour calendar here.

Kelsea Ballerini new music

In October 2022, the 29-year-old released her fourth record “Subject To Change.”

The album mixes country, pop and dance which goes down smooth for hardcore fans and those her are just discovering her catalog with its good-natured lyrics and upbeat tempo changes.

We’re partial to the second track “THE LITTLE THINGS” where Ballerini pays homage to the intangibles in a relationship that make it work like “when her partner puts a hand on her back in a crowded room” or “waiting on her in the morning with a cup of coffee.”

You can hear the upbeat “Subject To Change” in its entirety here .

More recently, she dropped the soul-baring, six-song EP “Rolling Up The Welcome Mat.” Both songs from her ‘SNL’ set were from this short offering.

It’s also available for streaming —  all you have to do is click here .

Kelsea Ballerini opening act

Before Ballerini takes the stage, audiences will be treated to up-and-coming singer-songwriter Georgia Webster.

The 20-year-old Massachusetts native first exploded onto the scene after an acoustic version of her single “Tell Your Mom” went viral on TikTok in 2020.

Since then, she’s released two EPs: 2021’s “First Goodbye” and 2022’s “Chapter 1: Things We’re Not Saying.”

If you want a taste of her poppy country sound, you can listen to Webster here.

Kelsea Ballerini ‘SNL’ performance

Ballerini performed two songs on the March 4 episode of ‘Saturday Night Live’ hosted by Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

First, she treated the crowd to a rousing edition of her powerful “BLINDSIDED” which can be seen below.

Then, toward the end of the show, Ballerini delivered the stripped-down ballad “Penthouse.”

Both songs are from Ballerini’s 2023 EP “Rolling Up The Welcome Mat.”

Country stars on tour in 2023

It just might be time to start planning your annual concert calendar.

Dozens of the biggest country stars are hitting the road this year and we know you won’t want to miss them.

To help out, we’ve compiled a list of five of the biggest country stars on tour in 2023:

Kelsea Ballerini Adds New Dates to 2023 US HEARTFIRST Tour

By Maxim Mower

Although she hasn't yet started the second leg of her US HEARTFIRST tour, which kicks off on March 6, Kelsea Ballerini has extended her 2023 run of shows with newly announced Summer shows.

This third wave of dates will commence on June 16 in Santa Barbara, California, with Kelsea due to make a number of follow-up appearances across the state later in the month.

Kelsea Ballerini recently wrapped up her UK tour, which took her across Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham and London.

During these shows, the setlist primarily consisted of highlights from Kelsea's much-loved 2022 album, SUBJECT TO CHANGE .

However, the ‘half of my hometown’ hitmaker has also started performing a handful of tracks from her more recent Rolling Up the Welcome Mat EP , such as ‘Penthouse’ and ‘Leave Me Again’.

The vulnerable, revealing project explored the breakdown of Kelsea Ballerini's divorce from fellow country artist, Morgan Evans.

Kelsea confessed on-stage during her final show in London that she never imagined she'd ever play any songs from the EP live.

On March 2, US fans got a taste of what to expect on her upcoming tour dates through her moving rendition of ‘Penthouse’ on the hugely popular TV variety show, Saturday Night Live .

All dates on the recently announced third leg of the HEARTFIRST tour will be support by country prodigy, Georgia Webster, who also opened for Kelsea on all of her UK shows.

For the full list of Kelsea Ballerini's newly added third leg of US tour dates, see below:

Ballerini kicked off the first round of “HEARTFIRST Tour” dates in the fall, as she released her latest full-length album, Subject To Change .

Since then, Ballerini has also released Rolling Up The Welcome Mat , a 6-track EP and accompanying short film that reflects on her marriage and divorce. 

Ballerini is gearing up to make her Saturday Night Live debut , and after that, she’ll return to the next leg of the “HEARTFIRST Tour.” See the upcoming dates here :

    One of my favorite segments, and certainly one of the most unique in these parts, was Ballerini dancing up into the audience with a saucy rendition of "You're Drunk, Go Home," and then jumping onto what she dubbed "the B Stage" (a small platform near the soundboard), to sing "Hole in the Bottle," a classic song about nursing heartbreak with drinking, followed by Ballerini taking ...
