I thought the headline for this story was rather perfect. "ALABAMA IS TOURING!" enough said, right?
If you're a true country music fan then you know what a complete and total big deal this is and are ready to make a fuss for some tickets! Alabama will be heading out on tour in early 2019, their 50TH ANNIVERSARY tour. The boys kick things off in Detroit on January 10th and make their way around the country including a couple of stops in Florida before closing out in September.
Openers vary for each tour date, but include Chris Janson, Tracy Lawrence, Restless Heart, Exile, The Charlie Daniels Band, The Marshall Tucker Band, and The Oak Ridge Boys. Sounds like the legends have a lot of legendary friends.
Alabama formed in 1969 in Myrtle Beach, SC and we couldn't be more excited to celebrate their 50th with them!
