Country legends Johnny Lee and Mickey Gilley will be joining forces to co-headline the “Urban Cowboy Reunion Tour” beginning January 26. The two friends are reuniting for a series of live concert dates throughout 2018. The tour kicks off in Stafford, Texas and will visit cities all across the country, including Nevada, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Louisiana and Pennsylvania. After working together for over 50 years, Gilley and Lee have a friendship and stage chemistry that goes unmatched. The duo can be seen throughout the year in their hometown of Branson, Mo. at Mickey Gilley’s Shanghai Theater.

The tour reunites two of the stars of the 1980 iconic ‘Urban Cowboy’ film. The movie depicts a young man, played by John Travolta who learns about life and love in a Houston bar called “Gilley’s,” which was a real-life honky-tonk owned and operated by Gilley himself and still exists today in multiple cities. This country classic played an integral role in the careers of both Mickey Gilley and Johnny Lee, among other artists, catapulting them and their music into the spotlight.

“I’m really, really happy about going out on the road with my good friend Mickey Gilley and doing the ‘Urban Cowboy Reunion Tour’,” says Lee. “We go back a long time, and it is fun sharing stories and music with the fans. This tour is long overdue, and it is gonna be like old times for you with my good friend- and to me that is a good thing.”

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to tour once again with my good friend. The Urban Cowboy craze kept my career alive for all of these years, and every night when I go to bed, I thank John Travolta for my amazing career. At 81, I am still rockin,” says Gilley.
