Paisley returning to B-N

Country superstar Brad Paisley, pictured here two years ago at his U.S. Cellular Coliseum show in Bloomington, is headed back to the venue, now the Grossinger Motors Arena.

BLOOMINGTON — Country superstar Brad Paisley, who sold out the U.S. Cellular Coliseum twice before, is returning for thirds at the Bloomington venue, now the Grossinger Motors Arena.

Paisley will bring his "Weekend Warrior World Tour" to the downtown arena on Feb. 15, according to the musician's management company.

Ticket information, including start time on-sale date, is expected to  be available next week.

Opening the show will be a trio of special guests: Dustin Lynch, Chase Bryant and Lindsay Ell.

Paisley's first pass through the Coliseum, in January 2010, was one of the Coliseum's early successes with every ticket selling within an hour. He returned two years ago and repeated the feat.

Over the course of his 18-year career, Paisley has earned three Grammy Awards, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards and the same number of Country Music Association Awards.

Paisley made his Twin Cities concert debut headlining a McLean County Fair grandstand show at the dawn of his career in August 2000.

Over the course of his career, he has notched 24 No. 1 singles, 21 of which he wrote, including his recent hit, "Today."

His current "Love and War" became his ninth consecutive No. 1 album on Billboard 's Top Country Albums chart.
