Brad Paisley Announces The Camobunga! 2012 World Tour!
Brad Paisley recently wrapped up his 2011 Tour, and he is wasting zero time getting back out on the road again! Paisley has officially announced his The Camobunga! 2012 World Tour. This tour is sponsored by Chevy and will kick-off on January 12th in Grand Rapids, MI. See the list below for a complete itinerary of dates and locations!
Now, the title of this tour is just a little strange, and luckily, Brad has provided a some information to explain the origin of this name. Apparently, it is the combination of “camouflage” and “cowabunga” (I’m sure you probably figured that out). Please see the complete definition and origin provided by Paisley below!
Camobunga :n; : //kam,bunga/ – The name of a live musical tour experience. A mind blowing blend of country, fiery 60’s surf guitar acrobatics, futuristic special effects, retro heart and soul, and mind altering liquid beverages. The spirit of the deep woods meets the breakneck excitement of the California coast.
camouflage – N: /kamfläZH/ -fabric w/ splotches of green, brown, black & tan, meant to make the wearer of this pattern hard to distinguish from the background;(or possibly stand out as a redneck).
cowabunga (exclamation): Originated as a greeting by Chief Thunderthud on the 50’s cowboy puppet tv program “The Howdy Doody Show”, was later adopted by surfers in the 60’s.
