Alabama‘s long-awaited 50th Anniversary Tour, which was mostly delayed due to COVID-19, is picking back up after nearly two years. Nashville will be the first stop on the milestone tour, which kicks off July 2-3 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. These two concerts mark the band’s first arena performance in Nashville in nearly two decades, and will be the first full-capacity concerts held at Bridgestone since the start of the pandemic in early March of 2020.
The 25-date arena and amphitheater tour will take place throughout 2021 and early 2022, and will feature special guests Martina McBride, The Marshall Tucker Band,Travis Tritt, Sara Evans, America, Grits & Glamour (Lorrie Morgan and Pam Tillis), Tracy Lawrence, The Beach Boys, The Frontmen of Country, and Jake Hoot on select dates.
“We are very thankful that we can play our music for our loyal fans of the past 50 years and introduce our songs to a new 3rd and 4th generation of new fans,” says Alabama lead singer Randy Owen. “We have rehearsed an all-new show that we are having fun performing, but you never know, we might even take requests from time to time. There’s nothing like the roar of the crowd, and we can’t wait to get back on the road.”
“This tour, that we are blessed to have, has the most amazing group of musicians and vocalists that we have ever had on the road,” explains Alabama bass player/vocalist Teddy Gentry. “In addition, we wanted to bring along some special friends to join us on tour each night. From The Marshall Tucker Band to Travis Tritt and Martina McBride to The Beach Boys, what a party we are going to have. I can’t tell you how ready we are to see and play for you.”
Tickets for the tour are on sale now and information can be found on the band’s official website thealabamaband.com. Previously purchased tickets for rescheduled dates will be honored at each show, and fans who are now unable to attend may request a refund. Eligibility for a refund requires a previous purchase through Ticketmaster—tickets that were transferred, posted, or sold will not be honored.
