Lady Antebellum Announce Final Leg of Own the Night 2012 World Tour
Unfortunately, the saying “all good things comes to an end” does include Lady Antebellum‘s wildly popular headlining Own the Night 2012 World Tour. The award-winning trio has announced the dates for the final leg of the tour, which wraps in Australia this October.
The members of the reigning CMA and ACM Vocal Group of the Year express their excitement in returning to the land down under. ”We’ve been anxiously waiting to announce that we’re going back to Australia,” says Lady A’s Dave Haywood in a statement. “We were over there a little bit over a year ago with Keith Urban, and it was honestly one of the best experiences of our performing career.”
Selling more than 850,000 tickets during the first leg of their tour, the success of their latest headlining outing has mirrored the critical and commercial success of their third studio album of the same name. ‘Own the Night’ has sold more than one million copies, and won the Country Album of the Year trophy at this year’s Grammy Awards ceremony.
Lady Antebellum can be found on the country charts with ‘Wanting You More,’ the current album’s fourth single. Though the trio is currently hard at work on their follow up project, the release may not be as immediate as fans may hope.
“We’re going to take our time with this one,” leading lady Hillary Scott tells Billboard. “Because [‘Own the Night’], as proud as we are of it, we all feel like we rushed it a little bit. So we’re going to just settle in and write and write and write. We may try to go in [to the studio] at some point this year, just to try some things, but honestly it’s hard to tell. We’re going to really wait until we’re ready.”
Tickets for the Australian shows go on sale on June 15 at 9AM CT, but pre-sale tickets are available beginning June 12. Visit the band’s official website for more details.
