Tim McGraw will be returning to the road next year, as he recently announced his 2024 Standing Room Only Tour, with support from Carly Pearce, which has only 1 Canadian stop in Vancouver, B.C. on March 27th.

Since the last time McGraw mounted a full-scale tour, there’s been an uptick in incidents of fans throwing things onstage — in some cases, even hurting the artist — at shows in country music and beyond.

In a new interview with ET Online, McGraw says the trend is concerning, but he’s not planning to put up extra barriers or double up on security for his tour.

“Hopefully I’m still spry, and [I] hope I can dodge and duck and leap… I mean, it’s absolutely crazy, and then you ruin the show for everybody else [if you throw an item at an artist.]”

Still, safety is a big focus at McGraw’s upcoming show — and for him, that means coming up with a “crazy spectacular production” that doesn’t include much pyro.
