The New York Mets and Live Nation yesterday announced that the multiple-Grammy winning Zac Brown Band will perform at Citi Field Friday, August 19 as part of their “Black Out The Sun” 2016 Tour.
Tickets will go on sale Friday, March 11 at 10:00 a.m. online at mets.com/zbb and by phone at 718-507-TIXX. The tour’s name is inspired by a lyric from “Tomorrow Never Comes” off their latest album ‘JEKYLL + HYDE’. Drake White & The Big Fire are direct support for Zac Brown Band.
The “BLACK OUT THE SUN” tour announcement comes on the heels of the three-time GRAMMY-winner’s largest North American tour to date. This included two history-making performances – a first ever sold-out, three-night run at Fenway Park, and a concert at Coors Field along with performances at Wrigley Field, Nationals Park, Citi Field, Comerica Park and Citizen’s Bank Park.
Released this past April, ‘JEKYLL + HYDE’ (Southern Ground/John Varvatos Records/Big Machine Label Group/Republic Records) debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, earning the GRAMMY Award-winning band its third consecutive #1, and is officially certified gold by the RIAA. Zac Brown Band also recently earned a 2016 ACM nomination for “Vocal Group of the Year.”
Zac Brown Band will be returning to Citi Field for the second consecutive year following two shows in the summer of 2015. The band will be the third high-profile musical act to perform stand-alone concerts at Citi Field in the summer of 2016 as Beyonce is scheduled for shows on Tuesday, June 7 and Wednesday, June 8 followed by Dead & Company on Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26.
