CMA NOMINEE LADY ANTEBELLUM FLIES INTO FINAL RUN OF HEADLINING WHEELS UP 2015 TOUR THIS WEEKEND
NASHVILLE, TN – Sept. 18, 2015 – After a sold-out performance for their first-ever headlining hometown stop at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Friday (9/11), Lady Antebellum will wrap their headlining WHEELS UP 2015 TOUR having proven “the group is far from running out of steam” (Billboard) with an “effervescent evening of impeccable harmonies” (The Tennessean). The 65-city tour that first launched in Europe earlier this year will soar into its final destination this weekend with shows in Pittsburgh, PA tonight (9/18) and Camden, NJ tomorrow (9/19).
“It’s hard to believe that we’re in the last weekend of this tour after checking off so many bucketlist moments with this show,” shares Lady A’s Charles Kelley. “The tour was our dream come true and it’s hard to really sum up exactly how much that means to us. We’re looking forward to spending a lot of time this winter writing new music – and we can’t wait for the next chapter of Lady A.”
In addition to selling out their first-ever hometown arena show, last weekend also marked a special moment for the CMA nominated trio as they surprised Navy veteran Alejandro Tamez, with a year of mortgage relief as their last 7FOR7 giveaway with Quicken Loans.

Additionally from their Music City performance Lady A, pictured here with Ellen Lehman, President of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, announced a contribution of $400,000 on behalf of their fans to LadyAID. The group set aside a portion of every ticket purchased over the course for their 2015 Tour to put towards the multi-level organization, which helps bring awareness and generate support for children locally, nationally and globally. LadyAID is a component fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
Fans can still celebrate the hit-packed trek, as Palladia will air the “Lady Antebellum: Wheels Up Tour” live special on Saturday, Sept. 26. For more information, visit www.ladyantebellum.com.
