Florida Georgia Line, Nelly sell out stadium dates

Superstar Country duo Florida Georgia Line has joined an exclusive club of world-class performers, selling out their first-ever stadium headline concerts as part of The Smooth Tour 2017.

The in-demand dates include Boston’s Fenway Park on July 7th, Minneapolis’ Target Field on July 29th, and Chicago’s Wrigley Field on August 12th. Following on-sale on Friday (March 24th), FGL’s rabid fanbase quickly scooped up every seat in Boston and Chicago in mere hours with Minneapolis tickets nearly gone.

“It’s an unreal feeling knowing that our dreams of being in stadiums are coming true and that our fans sold these shows out so quickly,” said Tyler Hubbard. “Not to mention we get to share a stage with our boys Backstreet Boys, Nelly, and Chris Lane. These shows will make history! We’re still so blown away.”

Signaling FGL’s growing crossover dominance, The Smooth Tour 2017 stadium dates are on point to thrill diverse audiences with special guests: pop idols Backstreet Boys – who are featured on FGL’s latest single “God, Your Mama, And Me,” along with GRAMMY Award-winning hip-hop icon Nelly – who reached Diamond status with FGL’s smash “Cruise,” and breakout country star Chris Lane.

“These shows will make history! We’re still so blown away.”

Meanwhile, FGL and Backstreet Boys are gearing up for an epic performance of the new single at the 52nd ACM Awards. Airing live on CBS as part of the star-studded event April 2nd at 8 pm ET, the night will mark the national TV debut of the buzzed-about collaboration. “God, Your Mama, And Me” is currently rocketing up the country radio charts, following in the footsteps of Dig Your Roots No. 1 smash singles “H.O.L.Y.” and “May We All” featuring Tim McGraw.

The duo has earned five nominations at this year’s ACM gala – Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year (Dig Your Roots), Single of the Year (“H.O.L.Y.”), Vocal Duo of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year (“May We All” featuring Tim McGraw) – and has previously won six ACM Awards.

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. FGL’s 2017 Dig Your Roots Tour is on the road through May 6th, featuring Dustin Lynch and Chris Lane, plus Seth Ennis, Ryan Follese and Morgan Wallen on select dates.
