Zac Brown Band Announces 2016 Tour Stop at Minute Maid Park on Aug. 13

Tickets go on sale Friday, March 25 at 10:00 a.m.

HOUSTON, TX - Zac Brown Band announced today that the "BLACK OUT THE SUN" tour, the band's sixth headlining US concert tour, will perform at Minute Maid Park in Houston on Saturday, Aug. 13. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 25 at 10:00 a.m. and will be available for purchase at www.astros.com/zacbrownband and at the Minute Maid Park Box Office. Presales for the "BLACK OUT THE SUN" tour begin on March 22 at 10:00 a.m.

 

The tour's name is inspired by a lyric from "Tomorrow Never Comes" off their latest album 'JEKYLL + HYDE'. The 26-date tour includes shows at both stadiums and amphitheaters, with Drake White & The Big Fire as direct support for Zac Brown Band.

 

The "BLACK OUT THE SUN" tour announcement comes on the heels of the three-time GRAMMY-winner's largest North American tour to date. This included two history-making performances - a first ever sold-out, three-night run at Fenway Park, and a concert at Coors Field along with performances at Wrigley Field, Nationals Park, Citi Field, Comerica Park and Citizen's Bank Park.

 

Released this past April, 'JEKYLL + HYDE' (Southern Ground/John Varvatos Records/Big Machine Label Group/Republic Records) debuted at #1 on Billboard's Top 200 chart, earning the GRAMMY Award-winning band its third consecutive #1, and is officially certified gold by the RIAA. Zac Brown Band also recently earned a 2016 ACM nomination for "Vocal Group of the Year."

 

Zac Brown Band is: Zac Brown (vocals/guitar), Jimmy De Martini (vocals/violin/guitar), John Driskell Hopkins (vocals/guitar/banjo/ukulele), Coy Bowles (vocals/keys/guitar), Clay Cook (vocals/guitar/keys), Chris Fryar (drums), Daniel de los Reyes (percussion) and Matt Mangano (bass).
