Lady A’s 2016 Summer Tour Includes Iowa State Fair
Lady Antebellum fans, fear not: Although the band has been taking some time off throughout the past few months, there will still be numerous opportunities to see them live this summer.
On May 27, Lady A will kick off a 22-date tour that will take them to California, Pennsylvania, New York, Iowa, Canada and more. The opening show is at the Bayou Country Superfest in Baton Rouge, La.; other stops include the Buckeye Country Superfest (Columbus, Ohio), the Faster Horses Festival (Brooklyn, Mich.) and numerous casinos. The trek wraps up on Aug. 26 at the Grand Casino in Hinckley, Minn.
A complete list of Lady Antebellum's summer concerts is below. More information on tickets is available at LadyAntebellum.com.
Following their tour, Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott will likely be hitting the studio.
“We’ve got a lot of people on salary and stuff, so we’re like, ‘Alright. This is a business,’” Kelley explains. “We’ll probably gear up and at least start cutting some stuff in the fall, as a band, but we’re just giving ourselves the luxury of time. We’re not going anywhere. We stay in touch as much as we always have, and we try to write when we can.”
Haywood tells USA Today that the time they’ve taken to explore their own individual music projects (Kelley’s solo album, Scott’s gospel record) is “going to make us stronger as a band.” And, ultimately, he says, “… the experience has already brought new ideas to the table for Lady A and has made us that much more ready to get back on the road together this summer. I’m really looking forward to what’s next for us as a band and hope that we’ll have some new music to share with our fans later this year.”
Prior to beginning their summer tour, Lady Antebellum will sing the National Anthem at the Kentucky Derby on May 7.
