Fans of Lady Antebellum rejoiced Saturday night as the trio of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, and Dave Haywood took the stage at the Huntington Center.
After opening the “Take Me Downtown” tour in Peoria, IL, Lady Antebellum made Toledo the second stop. The Toledo audience members appreciated the show, especially since a previous concert by Lady Antebellum was canceled. The tour was originally announced back in July, but the troupe decided to push back tour dates to coincide with the start of 2014. See the video for details.
For Lady Antebellum, 2013 was a fantastic year. In May, the trio released their fourth studio album of original songs titled “Golden”, and the first single from the CD was “Downtown”. The group then released a deluxe edition of the CD in November. The deluxe edition contained another six songs including “Compass.” By the end of 2013, the group had sold more than 12.5 million digital singles and 10 million albums in the United States. The trio also won six major awards including two from the American Country Awards: Single of the Year for “Downtown” and Group of the Year.
The year 2014 will be a busy one for Lady A. The current tour has over forty shows planned. The next chance to catch Lady Antebellum in Ohio will be on July 25. The trio will perform at the Ohio State Fair in Columbus, but the trio will play in nearby Grand Rapids, MI on Feb. 9. For other tour dates in nearby states, check Lady Antebellum.com.
Also appearing with the group on this tour are guests Kacey Musgraves and Kip Moore.
The Huntington Center continues to book top performers for Toledo audiences. Lady Antebellum is just the most recent. Back in November, Trans Siberian Orchestra played at the Huntington, and a few weeks ago, Jeff Dunham came to the Huntington. Upcoming events at the Huntington Center include WWE Smackdown, Zac Brown Band, Professional Bull Riders, and the band Skillet. For details, see the Huntington Center website.
