“The magic of being with fans from all over the country is really why we’re ultimately all here,” muses Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley. “Being able to play off each other on that stage is where we have the most fun.”
And this year, the Grammy-winning country trio will take that fun across the globe. Lady Antebellum’s Wheels Up 2015 Tour will begin next month, hitting three Australian cities and a handful of European destinations, including Dublin and London. The trek will come stateside in May, stopping in more than three dozen cities from New York to L.A., along with a few detours to Canada. (See below for the initial list of stops on the tour, which is expected to expand.)
Also along for the ride are two artists who will juggle this tour with their own 2015 headlining shows: Hunter Hayes and Sam Hunt. “I’m excited to finally get back on the road,” says Hayes. “And I’m excited to team up with Lady A — fantastic performers, unbelievable shows that they put on… The energy is going to be through the roof.”
In conjunction with the North American leg of their tour, Lady Antebellum will continue their 7FOR7 campaign — a wish-granting initiative that last year included giveaways ranging from a classroom full of instruments to a Disney vacation. This year, they’ve teamed with Quicken Loans to pay the home mortgages of seven families.
