Alabama have been celebrating 50 years together as a band with a tour announced back in 2018. While the pandemic scuttled the 2020 leg of the trek, the “Mountain Music” hitmakers will return to the road next month. The country group of Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry, and Jeff Cook announced a new string of dates on Monday.

Beginning next month with a pair of shows on July 2nd and 3rd in Nashville, the tour will visit states like Pennsylvania, Nevada, and Texas and run into 2022. Martina McBride is set to open the Nashville dates, which are billed as the first full-capacity concerts at the city’s Bridgestone Arena since the start of the pandemic. Other guests on select shows of the 50th Anniversary Tour include Tracy Lawrence, Travis Tritt, Sara Evans, America, and the Beach Boys.

The band’s singer promises fans a revamped concert experience from the earlier 50th anniversary shows. “We have rehearsed an all-new show that we are having fun performing, but you never know, we might even take requests from time to time,” Owen said in a statement. “There’s nothing like the roar of the crowd, and we can’t wait to get back on the road.”

Tickets purchased for the rescheduled shows will be honored. For more information, visit the band’s website.
