Lady Antebellum Fans Brave Stormy Weather for Attendance Breaking Concert Stop

Lady Antebellum played to over 62,000 devoted fans this past weekend on their headlining OWN THE NIGHT 2012 World Tour. The CMA and ACM Vocal Group of the Year played in Cincinnati, OH, Cleveland, OH, Pittsburgh, PA and Rochester, NY. In Cleveland, the supergroup played to over 18,600 fans, despite inclement weather, marking the biggest selling night of the Own the Night Tour.
 
While the fans were thrilled by Hillary, Charles and Dave, the press was equally impressed. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette wrote, “When the Grammy-winning trio of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood took the stage, they left no stone unturned…a full sing-along reached the back of the packed lawn. The band, whose talent runs deep, has a great chemistry and plays well to an audience. A classic stage with a U-shaped ramp and a riser stretching into standing-room-only allowed lots of audience interaction.” 

Additionally, the Cleveland Plain Dealer praised the trio. “Lady A didn’t just hit play on the CD and recreate a note-for-note version of ANY song. Tempo changes, dynamic changes, harmonic changes – all were incorporated, so that old songs sounded new.” 

Lady A will be opening the CMT Music Awards tomorrow with a special performance with Hot Chelle Rae. They’re nominated for Music Video of the Year, Group Video of the Year and CMT Performance of the Year.
