Multi-Platinum trio Lady Antebellum returns “to the touring circuit this summer with a whole new spring in their collective step” (The Sacramento Bee), after launching their 65-city You Look Good Tour with special guests Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young on the West Coast this past weekend (Bakersfield, CA, 5/26, Mountain View, CA, 5/27, Wheatland, CA, 5/28). Dave Haywood, Charles Kelly and Hillary Scott “used their renewed energy to fearlessly try some new sounds” (The Californian), as they aligned No. One hits and songs from the forthcoming sixth studio album Heart Break, available June 9th, with “big production and sound” (OC Register) along with “a fresh twist with the addition of a live horn section” (CMT).
“We were jumping out of our skin to get back on that stage and I can tell you we have not had that much fun in a really long time,” said Kelley. “With this new music, we set out to bring one of the biggest touring productions we have ever had and the fans responded. Everything feels great and our fans really showed up this weekend. If that’s any indicator for the rest of the summer, this tour is going to be one we remember forever!”
As Lady Antebellum has “long been a dependable live act” (Taste Of Country), their “big swingin’ single” (OC Register) “You Look Good” brought fans to their feet each night featuring their new touring band that now includes two horn players. Notable moments this weekend from Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone’s “must-see summer tour” also included the trio blending their harmonies on “Midnight Rider” in honor of Gregg Allman, along with a special rendition of Scott’s Grammy award-winning No. One hit, “Thy Will.”
The seven-time Grammy award winning trio will bring their “renewed energy” (People) to 65 shows across six countries, including South Africa for the first time. Heart Break follows more than 18 million units, nine No. One hits, ACM and CMA “Vocal Group of the Year” trophies three years in a row, and countless other honors including Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards and Teen Choice Awards.
