The Zac Brown Band will go “Down the Rabbit Hole Live” for another major tour that will kick off June 8.
The Atlanta-based band will visit a mixture of amphitheaters and baseball stadiums, including a hometown performance at 6:30 p.m. June 30 at SunTrust Park. OneRepublic will open the show.
Tickets to the general public will go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 19 via www.ticketmaster.com and braves.com/zacbrownband. The Zamily Fan Club pre-sale will begin at 10 a.m. Jan. 16 and Citi cardmembers can purchase tickets from 10 a.m. Jan. 17 through 10 p.m. Jan. 18 through its Citi Private Pass program. Prices are $126.50 for general admission pit and field tickets and $51-$111 for reserved seating.
Last year, ZBB opened its summer tour with a pair of shows at Verizon Amphitheatre. That tour, behind their “Welcome Home” album, played to more than a million fans.
As for this year’s outing, which will play 27 dates, Brown said the name is “a reference to the never-ending pursuit of excellence.”
The band is up for a Grammy Award at the Jan. 28 ceremony for “My Old Man” in the best country duo/group performance category. While in New York, they’ll also perform at the 2018 MusiCares Person of the Year tribute at Radio City Music Hall to honor Fleetwood Mac.
