Lady Antebellum postpone tour, including Feb. 7 concert at Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa
You can go ahead and uncircle Feb. 7 on your calendar, Lady Antebellum fans.
The chart-topping country trio has decided to postpone and reorganize their 60-date "Take Me Downtown" Tour, including a stop at the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Feb. 7.
In a statement on their website, Lady A -- which has been mostly inactive in 2013 as singer Hillary Scott had a baby girl -- said the reorganization was neccessary to accommodate a deluxe reissue of their album Golden on Nov. 12.
"We hope these changes aren't too much trouble for you," the band writes. "We are sorry for the inconvenience, we love you guys, and we're excited to see you on the road!"
If there is a silver lining for Tampa fans, it's that tickets to the Forum show never actually went on sale -- they were originally scheduled to drop this week -- so refunds shouldn't be a problem. It's looking like the Tampa show won't take place until late April at the earliest, but for now, the date and venue are now both listed as "TBD."
Maybe instead of taking fans downtown, Lady Antebellum wants to take them outside ... as in, to the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre for a summer show? We'll see.
