Lady Antebellum pushes back tour
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Lady Antebellum is postponing the start of its 60-date concert tour.
The Nashville, Tenn.-based country music trio says on its website it will now begin the 60-plus city tour Jan. 10 in Peoria, Ill.
Lady A had been scheduled to start the tour Nov. 8 in Omaha, Neb., and more than a dozen shows will be rescheduled.
The group’s website says the postponement is due in part to events surrounding the Nov. 12 release of a deluxe version of its latest album, “Golden.”
Hillary Scott, Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley have been on hiatus since Scott gave birth to a daughter earlier this summer.
