Nashville, TN – June 4, 2012 – CMA and ACM Vocal Group of the Year Lady Antebellum were joined by over 62,000 fans this weekend on their headlining OWN THE NIGHT 2012 WORLD TOUR sponsored by GAC in Cincinnati, OH, Cleveland, OH, Pittsburgh, PA and Rochester, NY. More than 18,600 fans weathered Thursday night’s rainy concert with the trio and special guests Darius Rucker and Thompson Square in Cleveland, becoming the biggest selling night of the group’s 2012 tour.
“When the Grammy-winning trio of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood took the stage, they left no stone unturned…a full sing-along reached the back of the packed lawn. The band, whose talent runs deep, has a great chemistry and plays well to an audience. A classic stage with a U-shaped ramp and a riser stretching into standing-room-only allowed lots of audience interaction.” – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
“Lady A didn’t just hit play on the CD and recreate a note-for-note version of ANY song. Tempo changes, dynamic changes, harmonic changes – all were incorporated, so that old songs sounded new.” – Cleveland Plain Dealer
“The band put on a spirited performance, not making much of the weather issue.” – Cincinnati Enquirer
