The Zac Brown Band will kick off their 2017 headlining North American concert tour on May 12th in their hometown at Atlanta’s Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park. The 40+ date tour sees the band returning to stadiums and amphitheaters nationwide including Hollywood Bowl, Wrigley Field, Coors Field, Gorge Amphitheatre and Camden’s BB&T Pavilion where last year they broke the record for the best-attended show in the venue’s 22-year history.
We’re looking forward to heading back on the road in 2017 and sharing some new songs with our fans,” Brown said.
2016 was a record-breaking year for the multi-platinum artists. In addition to breaking attendance records at Camden’s BB&T Pavilion, the band made Fenway Park history with the most tickets sold at a single concert, the most tickets sold over two nights of concerts by the same artist and the first band to sell-out seven consecutive shows over three years at the ballpark.
Other milestones included the band’s debut album ‘The Foundation’ being certified 5X platinum and a career-spanning exhibition entitled “Homegrown: Zac Brown Band” that explored Zac Brown Band’s rise to fame at The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
Rolling Stone has said that the band’s live show “reaches far behind the boundaries of country music, roping in everything from Metallica covers to EDM-inspired light displays.” The band’s 2016 “Black Out The Sun” US concert tour received widespread acclaim with reviewers calling it “a rollicking…musical odyssey” and ”a dazzling… explosive performance” with “musical brilliance and craft.”
