The Zac Brown Band have a thing for animals. Following the Down the Rabbit Hole Tour and The Owl Tour, the group has announced their summer run, the Roar With the Lions Tour.
The trek launches in Gilford, New Hampshire, with two shows at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion on May 24th and 25th. Along with other amphitheaters, like the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey, and the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel, New York, the tour includes stops at ballparks, including a June 26th date at Citi Field in New York and an August 7th show at SunTrust Park in Atlanta.
“Our summer tour is inspired by the folklore surrounding the figure of the lion,” Brown said in a statement. “I am a Leo, and all of the guys in the band are lions. They exemplify strength, courage, intelligence, and loyalty, and work in tandem to defend their territory and one another. The crowd is our pride – rooted in togetherness and fiercely loyal. They always show up for each other, no matter what, just like our fans always show up for us. We can’t wait to hear you roar with us!”
Songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov opens most dates, while St. Paul and the Broken Bones are on tap for a September 12th stop at Chicago’s Wrigley Field.
Tickets go on sale January 17th at 10:00 a.m. local time via the band’s website.
In September, the group released its latest album, The Owl, featuring the single “Leaving Love Behind” and “The Woods,” for which the band released a video that combined clips of people involved in all sorts of often comedic accidents.
