Dierks Bentley‘s 2017 What The Hell World Tour is over and it’s one for the books. The superstar played more than 60 venues since January, selling more than 750,000 tickets in the process. That makes it Dierks’ most successful tour yet and earned him the top spot on Billboard‘s Hot Tours list back in June.

As for Dierks, he considers the run a dream come true. “This tour has been one of those experiences you wait for your entire life,” Dierks says through his publicist. “To the fans and all the people who filled every seat in the house, who stood on their feet for hours and spent their hard-earned money to come see a show, you have made this an unforgettable journey.”

The tour wrapped over the weekend (9/2) in Denver, Colorado. “It’s going to be weird not having Cole [Swindell] and [Jon] Pardi around, but I can’t thank those guys enough for coming along for this ride,” Dierks continues. “Night after night the crowds were more explosive than the last … it will be a really hard year to top!”

Dierks has at least one standalone date left this year. It takes place in Durant, Oklahoma in November. More here.
