(CAMDEN, NJ) -- ‘Down The Rabbit Hole Live: Zac Brown Band 2018,' Zac Brown Band’s eighth headlining North American Concert Tour, kicks off June 8. The 27-date tour, which will see more stadium shows than any of the group’s previous tours, begins with two concerts at Boston’s iconic Fenway Park and concludes with two stadium performances with the Eagles at San Francisco’s AT&T Park and San Diego’s Petco Park. The tour includes back to back dates at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden on July 19-20 and back to back shows at Citi Field in Flushing, NY on July 28-29.
"'Down The Rabbit Hole Live' is a reference to the never-ending pursuit of excellence," says Zac Brown. "This summer, we’ll bring the fans along that journey with us."
Zac Brown Band played to more than a million fans in 2017 and over five million fans in the last five years. Sold-out stadium shows at Denver’s Coors Field and Chicago’s Wrigley Field anchored last year’s tour, which Billboard described as an “epic 2017 show run.”
Hit single “My Old Man” is up for Best Country Duo/Group Performance at The 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards, to be handed out January 28 in New York City. The nomination is the ninth for the group’s members, to go with three GRAMMY wins.
