Lady A (Antebellum) With Carly Pierce, Niko Moon, & Tenille Arts
The trio consisting of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood are set to announce the tour during an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday (May 19), where they will also hand out tickets to some of the shows. Lady A’s What a Song Can Do Tour is slated to launch on July 29 with a performance at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn., and it runs through Oct. 10, when it wraps in Gilford, N.H. Carly Pearce, Niko Moon and Tenille Arts will serve as Lady A’s support acts.
“This tour is really going to be about letting our fans know how much they mean to us and what music has done for all of us over the last year…which is the essence of the tour name. We started writing a song called ’What A Song Can Do’ and it turned into a love-letter to our fans,” Kelley said. “We are gonna soak up these moments on stage more than we ever have before. It’s gonna be hard to wipe the smiles off our faces and I’m sure the tears off of Hillary’s. We were lucky enough to still release new music this past year but there are songs like ’Champagne Night’ and ’What If I Never Get Over You’ that we haven’t been able to play live much so we know those will make for some really special moments.”
A portion of the ticket sales will go towards LadyAID, the group’s philanthropic fund which supports initiatives around the world ranging from helping vulnerable children, societal and cultural issues, as well as natural disaster aid and recovery.
