FLUSHING, N.Y., April 30, 2015 - Due to popular demand, the New York Mets and Live Nation have announced that the multiple-Grammy winning country music group Zac Brown Band will perform a second show at Citi Field Saturday, August 22.
Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, May 8 at 10:00 a.m. online at Mets.com/ZBB and by phone at 718-507-TIXX. Mets Season Ticket Holders will have access to a special online pre-sale on Wednesday, May 6 beginning at 12:00 noon.
Tickets for the previously announced show at Citi Field on Friday, August 21 are on sale now. Zac Brown Band's new album 'JEKYLL + HYDE' was just released on Tuesday, April 28, on Southern Ground/John Varvatos Records/Big Machine Label Group/Republic Records.
Describing the album's direction, Zac told Rolling Stone earlier this year that it will have "things that people will expect and things that they won't." Digital pre-orders will include immediate downloads of "Homegrown", "Dress Blues" and "Heavy Is the Head." "Homegrown" -- the band's highest chart debut, which is bulleted at #10 on country radio this week -- has earned massive fan support and early praise for its "rock feel" (Country Weekly) and "intricately arranged vocal harmonies" (Billboard).
'JEKYLL + HYDE' follows Zac Brown Band's three platinum-selling albums, 'Uncaged', 'You Get What You Give', and 'The Foundation', and their 2013 project 'The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1', which have together sold over seven million copies, produced a historic series of eleven #1 hit singles and earned three Grammy's. Since 2009, they have earned 55 nominations and eight awards from the Grammys, Academy of Country Music, American Music Awards, Country Music Association and Country Music Television. Their #1 single "Chicken Fried" received four nominations for the 2009 CMA Awards: New Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Single of the Year, and Music Video of the Year.
The band will be the second high-profile musical act to perform stand-alone concerts at Citi Field in the summer of 2015 as the Foo Fighters are scheduled for shows on Wednesday, July 15 and Thursday, July 16.
