Lady Antebellum and Darius Rucker Set Spirited Summer Plays On Tour For 2018

Starting this July, the long-time friends hit the road for run with special guest Russell Dickerson

Lady Antebellum and Darius Rucker are teaming up for an epic, co-headlining tour this summer!

Kicking off the Summer Plays On Tour on July 19th in Toronto, the string of dates will hit major markets including Holmdel, NJ, San Diego, Philadelphia, and West Palm Beach, FL.

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.

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

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.

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

Fans can purchase tickets beginning Jan. 26 for select cities as part of Live Nation’s Country Megaticket at www.Megaticket.com and additional dates will continue to rollout over the coming weeks.
