Lady Antebellum have been hard at work on the stage production, lighting, set list, rehearsals and more to bring their crowds one heckuva show when they kick off the North American leg of their Wheels Up 2015 Tour later this week. Fans in Lubbock, Texas on Friday, May 1st will be the first to experience it, and the band says this is their favorite tour for a number of reasons.
“I think this is our absolute No. 1 favorite tours – favorite production, favorite staging and lighting,” says Lady A’s Dave Haywood. “But more than that, I just think we’re at a point now in our career to put together a set list that’s really all pretty much radio singles. And, that’s a real special moment for us. I mean, it’s fun to also have one or two kind of album cuts for a lot of the super fans and big fans out there. But, what’s great is to be at a point to have this many singles to pack into a show, and it’s a real, I think, special moment for that reason. And then also, this staging is just blowing us away.”
The group previewed the tour in front of an intimate crowd of media and staff, as well as for the label, last week, and included a handful of songs, such as their current single, “Long Stretch of Love.”
The trek will continue through the fall with Sam Hunt and Hunter Hayes.
