Florida Georgia Line add Backstreet Boys, stadium tour dates

For the first time in their red-hot career, superstar country duo Florida Georgia Line will headline their own stadium concerts in 2017 – and they’re adding Pop Idols Backstreet Boys to the bill.

As part of The Smooth Tour 2017’s exhilarating crossover lineup with the Diamond-selling, GRAMMY Award-winning Hip-hop Icon Nelly and breakout country star Chris Lane, Backstreet Boys will join FGL for three of the most buzzworthy must-see shows this summer, taking place at Boston’s Fenway Park on July 7th, Minneapolis’ Target Field on July 29th and Chicago’s Wrigley Field on August 12th.

The genre-defining boy band is featured on FGL’s tender new single “God, Your Mama, And Me,” currently making its way up the country radio airplay charts as the third release from the duo’s chart-topping BMLG Records’ album Dig Your Roots, which has already produced back-to-back No. 1s with “H.O.L.Y.” and “May We All” (featuring Tim McGraw). The “God, Your Mama, And Me” music video – complete with candid footage of each group member’s real-life love story – is available now.

News of the electrifying new stadium dates was revealed today (Tues, March 7th) on ABC’s Good Morning America and included a ticket giveaway for the first round of lucky fans. Fans nationwide can enter for a chance to win a trip to their choice of one of the three stadium stops, courtesy of proud tour sponsor Advance Auto Parts, a leading automotive aftermarket parts provider in North America that serves both professional installer and do-it-yourself customers.

Sponsored by Advance Auto Parts and presented by Old Camp Whiskey, The Smooth Tour 2017 kicks off June 2nd in Austin, Texas. Live Nation is the official promoter of the tour and details on ticket sales for the new stadium shows will be revealed soon.

Meanwhile, FGL’s 2017 Dig Your Roots Tour is on the road now through May 6th, featuring Dustin Lynch and Chris Lane, plus Seth Ennis, Ryan Follese and Morgan Wallen on select dates. Crisscrossing North America with sold-out stops from Las Vegas, Nevada, to Quebec, Canada, and everywhere in between, the Dig Your Roots Tour has already garnered rave reviews from a wide range of press outlets.

Citi is the official credit card of the Dig Your Roots and Smooth Tours. Citi cardmembers will have access to pre-sale tickets beginning Monday, March 13th at 10 am local prior to the general public on-sale through Citi’s Private Pass Program.
