Hot on the heels of their “Down The Rabbit Hole Tour”, Zac Brown Band kicks off “The Owl Tour” on May 25. This nationwide tour marks the seventh straight summer on the road for the three-time ACM award winners, and will feature songs from their upcoming, yet-to-be-named 2019 album.
The band has already teased the new album with the single “Someone That I Used to Know”. “That song is really personal to me,” Brown says. “It’s a song born out of strength, and born out of being something better than you were; getting to reinvent yourself.” With its synth loops and electronic effects, the single is certainly a reinvention of Zac Brown Band’s sound, but Brown is confident that fans will enjoy their new album. “It’ll be a good mixture of everything,” he says.
The tour begins at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s Legends Day concert, and concludes in Dallas, TX on October 26 at the Dos Equis Pavilion. In total, the band will perform 36 concerts in 32 different cities. Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real will join them for fifteen shows, and Caroline Jones joins them for nine. All three bands will perform together at Coors Field in Denver, CO on August 9, creating what is sure to be one of 2019’s must-see country music events. Other major shows will be on August 31 in Boston’s Fenway Park, and August 11 at the Iowa State Fair. Canadian fans can see them perform on July 12 at the Calgary Stampede.
