Alabama Extends 50th Anniversary Tour
Alabama is celebrating a half-century of making music with their current 50th Anniversary Tour. The tour kicked off in January with an announced run of 27 shows. Now the iconic band is extending their tour with 28 new dates, including stops in Indianapolis, Baltimore, Birmingham and more. The Charlie Daniels Band, The Marshall Tucker Band, The Beach Boys (date to be announced), John Anderson, Restless Heart, Exile, John Michael Montgomery, Scotty McCreery and Charlie Major will join Alabama on select dates. Alabama’s Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook formed the band in 1969 when the cousins journeyed to Myrtle Beach, S.C., to play at a bar called The Bowery. “We are very fortunate to have made many friends over the last 50 years,” says Teddy. “On this tour, we decided to ask some of them to come along and play with us. We have the best of the best. It’s a lot of fun to hang out and watch our special guests every night.” “Randy, Teddy and I have been overwhelmed by the support the fans have given us and especially me since my Parkinson’s diagnosis,” says Jeff. “The only reason for this is because we want our music to live on, and we love our fans. Thank you so much.” “Teddy, Jeff and I thank God every day when we walk onstage and share our songs and voices that He blessed us with,” adds Randy. Tickets for the new dates are on sale now.
