Rapidly ascending country music star Jelly Roll brings his “Beautifully Broken” tour to the UBS Arena in Elmont on Sept. 28, a day after playing Madison Square Garden.

“This is the biggest tour of my life y’all and I’m going to do it really really big this year — I can’t wait to see y’all at a show. Come party with us!” wrote the two-time Grammy Award nominee, 39, born Jason DeFord, on social media.

General-public tickets go on sale March 1 at 10 a.m. at Opening acts are country singers Warren Zeiders (“Ride the Lightning”) and Alexandra Kay (“How Do We Go”).

Jelly Roll achieved a Billboard magazine first in June when his hit “Need a Favor” became the first song ever to reach the top 10 of both the Country Airplay and Mainstream Rock Airplay charts, attesting to his crossover appeal. His most recent album, “Whitsitt Chapel,” came out that same month. In November, Jelly Roll won the Country Music Association’s New Artist of the Year Award.

The singer-songwriter was a guest performer on last year’s “American Idol” season finale and will appear as a performer and guest mentor this season, which premiered Sunday. He recently was among the stars of an Uber Eats Super Bowl commercial, alongside Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Usher, and David and Victoria Beckham.

In addition to his music, with its confessional lyrics about his rebirth from a past of drug addiction and prison time, Jelly Roll has connected with audiences through his policy of what he said in an interview was “two to three days a week … [doing] something of benevolence wherever we are.” This has included performing at drug rehabilitation centers and donating a recording studio to the juvenile detention center in which he served as a teen.
