Lady A announces fall tour including Chaifetz
Lady Antebellum have announced the first leg of a headlining tour in support of their current smash album, ‘Golden.’ The trio revealed the cities and dates for 17 shows of a 40-date-plus tour that kicks off Nov. 8 in Southaven, Miss.
Special guests Kip Moore and Kacey Musgraves will join Lady Antebellum for the Take Me Downtown 2013 Tour. The ‘Downtown’ hitmakers’ last tour performed to more than a million fans in 11 countries, earning them the Billboard Touring Breakthrough Award and the CMA’s International Artists Achievement Award. They plan to top that show this time around.
“We spent almost every day last year backstage writing for our album ‘Golden,’ so we were really focused on writing songs that would connect with the fans in these arenas,” Charles Kelley says in a press release. “We definitely learned a lot about ourselves as live performers and the type of catalog we wanted to have so that we could go out and try to give the fans the best show they’ve ever experienced.”
He adds, “All of that was the jumping off point for this tour, and now it’s time to take it to the next level.”
Tickets and special VIP experiences go on sale beginning on Sept. 13. Visit the group’s website for updated on-sale information, and click here for more information about VIP opportunities.
More dates will be announced soon.
Chaifetz Arena will be the second stop on the tour, however, the venue has not announced the show, and general ticket information is not available. Details are expected soon.
