After rocking Gillette Stadium in Foxboro for his first stadium-headlining gig, Brad Paisley will return to New England later this fall. The country superstar will extend his “H2O” tour through the end of November, including a stop at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncassville, Connecticut on Friday, November 12. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $65 to $85, are now on sale through Ticketmaster. Darius Rucker and Justin Moore will open the show.

Paisley continues to tour in support of his seventh studio album, American Saturday Night, which was released last summer. The highly acclaimed album debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 and has been powered by the success of hit singles “Welcome to the Future”, “Then”, and “American Saturday Night”.

On November 2, Paisley will release his first greatest hits compilation, entitled Hits Alive. The double-disc collection will be comprised of one disc of Paisley’s hit singles recorded in the studio while the second disc will feature live and previously unreleased versions of Paisley’s classics. Hits Alive will also include his new hit single “Anything Like Me.”

Paisley will once again host the CMA Awards with Carrie Underwood on Wednesday, November 10. He’s also been nominated for three awards this year including Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Music Video of the Year for “Water”.

Rucker, who has spent most of the year opening for Paisley and headlining shows of his own, is gearing up for the release of his second country album, Charleston, SC 1966. The new album is scheduled to drop in stores on October 12 and features lead single “Come Back Song”, which is now streaming on his MySpace.
