– After selling out every city on the group's first-ever headlining tour, Lady Antebellum announced today that they will launch the first leg of the Own the Night 2011 Tour on Nov. 11 in Knoxville, Tenn.
Both the tour name and trio's upcoming album, "Own the Night," were inspired by the album's second single, the anthemic We Owned The Night.
"We named our new album 'Own The Night' after one of our favorite songs We Owned The Night off the new album, and felt it was a great description of how we wanted our fans to spend each night of tour with us," said Lady A's Dave Haywood. "When people come out to our live show or hear the song on the radio it's a call to action. Be confident, live in the moment and enjoy the experiences you're going through - own them."
The first leg of the 21-city arena tour will feature special guest Josh Kelley and a combination Eden's Edge and Randy Montana in the opening slot. Tickets for the opening night in Knoxville, Tenn. will be available on Aug. 26 to the public.
