Reba McEntire To Headline London Country Festival

After 20 years, the International Country Music Festival is returning to London, England with a big bang. The queen of country music, Reba McEntire, will headline the February festival at Wembley Arena. Her performance takes place February 26th, 2012 and tickets go on-sale October 10th, 2011. Reba’s appearance will be a rare opportunity for British fans to watch the legend live in concert. Joining her at the festival are Little Big Town, Ricky Skaggs, and Lonestar.

“My band, crew and I are really looking forward to going back to Europe to play our music.  The last time we performed there was in 1999!  We have been very busy for the last 10 years doing the REBA TV show and concerts in North America. Now, we are so excited to be able to travel abroad and do both our new and old songs for our European audience, who has always been so good to us.”

The International Country Music Festival ran for 23 years from 1969 to 1991 at Wembley Arena. They were the first shows to introduce country music to the United Kingdom. See the full lineup below:
