Rhythm City Casino Resort Event Center, 7077 Elmore Avenue, Davenport IA
Delivering what the New York Times called “elegant, often deadpan songs that tend toward manly understatement,” Gary Allan plays Davenport's Rhythm City Casino Resort on September 1, the chart-topping, multi-platinum-selling country superstar touring in support of his forthcoming release Hard Way, Allan's tenth studio album to date.
A native of La Mirada, California, the 50-year-old singer/songwriter Allan made his country-music debut with the release of his single “Her Man,” the lead-off to his gold-certified 1996 album Used Heart for Sale. His second album, It Would Be You, followed in 1998, and Allan's 1999 album Smoke Rings in the Dark was his first for MCA Nashville, with whom the artist has been signed ever since. Allan's next two albums – 2001's Alright Guy and 2003's See If I Care – were both certified platinum. His subsequent three – 2005's Tough All Over and 2007's Greatest Hits and Tough All Over – were certified gold. And his most recent releases, 2010's Get Off on the Pain and 2013's Set You Free, both reached the top 10 of the U.S. Billboard Top Country Albums charts, the former hitting number-two and the latter number-one – a career first for Allan.
Overall, Allan's nine studio and greatest-hits albums have produced 26 singles on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts, among them the number-one hits “Man to Man,” “Tough Little Boys,” “Nothing on But the Radio,” and “Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain).” Seven additional Allan singles have reached the Top 10, as well, and as a sell-out concert headliner nationwide, Allan has been a frequent guest on shows including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Live with Kelly & Michael, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. He has also landed on the covers of Country Weekly, Pollstar, and People magazine, and enjoyed a recent radio hit with "Do You Wish It Was Me?" from his upcoming album Hard Way.
