The Hammer Down Under Tour is about to drive its concert nail into the nation. No, this isn’t Bob the Builder’s final attempt at a comeback tour. American country music king Toby Keith is set to embark on a series of arena concerts next year, having secured a headline slot for the 2014 CMC Rocks the Hunter festival at the Hunter Valley’s illustrious Hope Estate.

Star-spangled country music bigwigs Eli Young Band and Kellie Pickler will be joining in support, with Sydney’s date set for Allphones Arena on Tuesday March 18. Chugg Entertainment kingpin Michael Chugg said of Keith, “We [Aussies] still think ‘he’s as good as he once was’,” and promised “this is going to be the country tour of the year.” Don’t be a tool!
