Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker team for 2018 tour

Seven-time GRAMMY award-winning and current nominees Lady Antebellum and three-time GRAMMY award-winner Darius Rucker have announced that they will head out on the road together for their co-headlining Summer Plays On Tour, kicking off on July 19th in Toronto, ON. The trio and Rucker share a long-time friendship and touring history, setting the tone for a fun-filled stint across the country and Canada, for which special guest Russell Dickerson has been invited to join. With dozens of No. one hits between them the tour offers a playlist-worthy night for fans which will also include spontaneous collaborations throughout the evening.

Fans can purchase tickets beginning January 26th for select cities as part of Live Nation’s Country Megaticket. Additional dates will continue to rollout over the coming weeks. Live Nation is the national tour promoter Citi is the official credit card of the Summer Plays On Tour. Citi cardmembers will have access to pre-sale tickets through Citi Private Pass, Citi’s Entertainment Access Program.

“For us as a band, being out on the road together is where it all comes to life,” states Lady A’s Charles Kelley. “Darius is one of our closest friends, and so we just feel really excited to get to share this tour and those memories on and off stage with him. There’s no doubt that it’s going to be a total blast and we’re thrilled to have Russell out with us too this summer – we’re already brainstorming ways to shake things up and make each night all about just being in the moment.”

“Reuniting this summer and heading back out on the road with my friends Lady Antebellum feels like a home away from home,” says Rucker. “It’s going to be an incredible summer, and I can’t wait to see y’all out there!”
