Superstar tours move from city to city like self-contained armies equipped with a caravan of 18-wheelers, a cast of technicians, musicians, engineers and full-blown catering. Like a small village of specialized craftsman, each member plays an integral part in helping to set up, present the show and then pack up and move to the next location.
Lady Antebellum’s Own The Night 2012 World Tour began Jan. 31 in Bloomington, Illinois and has enjoyed a string of sold out dates. The show travels overseas to the UK and Ireland this summer where they will open for Bruce Springsteen at the Hard Rock Calling Festival and also perform a series of headline dates.
