Seven-time GRAMMY winning group Lady Antebellum recently announced they will be soon embarking on their headlining WHEELS UP 2015 TOUR. The band will kick things off on Feb. 28 with a European trek through Norway, Sweden, Ireland, Scotland, the UK and Australia and begin the North American leg on May 1 in Lubbock, TX. The tour will continue through the fall with triple-threat entertainer Hunter Hayes and red-hot newcomer Sam Hunt rounding out the electric lineup.
“The magic of being with fans from all over the country is really why we’re ultimately all here,” said Lady A’s Charles Kelley. “Being able to play off each other on that stage is honestly where we have the most fun, and I have a feeling the crowd will already be on their feet when we get out there after starting the night with Hunter and Sam!”
Lady Antebellum’s fifth studio album, 747, has spawned the PLATINUM certified multi-week chart-topping smash hit “Bartender,” and its new single “Freestyle” is quickly climbing the charts. The new album follows over 11 million albums sold worldwide, nine trips to No. one on the country radio charts, six Platinum singles and “Vocal Group of the Year” honors from both the CMA and ACMs three years in a row.
Additionally, last year, Lady Antebellum launched their 7FOR7 initiative where they fulfilled seven wishes for seven fans in seven days. Continuing with their unique campaign, the band has partnered with Detroit-based Quicken Loans, the nation’s second largest mortgage lender, to pay the mortgages of seven families across the country for one year.
“Lady Antebellum has very devoted fans and we cannot wait to help several of them not only enjoy some great music through our sponsorship of this tour, but also enjoy a yearlong vacation from mortgage payments,” said Jay Farner, President and Chief Marketing Officer for Quicken Loans.
The trio’s “warranted leap to stardom” (Dallas Morning News) and undeniable chemistry has continuously commanded the attention of critics who continue to praise their “effortless harmonies and raw emotion” (The Washington Post) and “top-notch, high energy” performances (The Boston Herald).
