Lady Antebellum and Darius Rucker Join Forces for Summer Plays On Tour


Two acts are better than one, especially when those acts are Lady Antebellum and Darius Rucker. The good friends announced that they will hit the road together for their co-headlining, Summer Plays On Tour.

“For us as a band, being out on the road together is where it all comes to life,” said 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.”

The tour will kick off in the midst of summer on July 19 in Toronto, Ontario, making stops in Seattle, Phoenix, Chicago, Pittsburgh and West Palm Beach. Joining the trio and Darius will be Russel Dickerson as the opening act.

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