ZBB fire up new tour

Wednesday, December 14, 2022 – Tis the season for announcing new tours. Zac Brown Band followed suit, by announcing their upcoming 2023 "From the Fire Tour."

The tour starts
June 30, 2023 in Columbus, Ohio and ends Nov. 4 in Tampal, Fla.

The band will perform over 30 shows, including a return to Fenway Park in Boston as well as performances at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater in New York, Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pa. and Saratoga Performing Arts Center in New York. The band will be joined by a group of opening acts on select dates including Marcus King, Tenille Townes and King Calaway.

The new shows arrive on the heels of this year's "Out in the Middle Tour" and the release of "The Comeback (Deluxe)" album, which features re-recorded tracks with Blake Shelton, James Taylor, Jimmy Buffett, Cody Johnson, Marcus King, Jamey Johnson, and Ingrid Andress.

"This past year was monumental, and we're thrilled to bring all that momentum with us into 2023 and onto the 'From the Fire Tour,'" said Brown. "We are all like family in this band and having the opportunity to bring our music from city to city is something we never take for granted. We can't wait to be back out on the road with our fans."

Just ahead of the "From the Fire Tour," the band return to the international stage, with headlining performances at both C2C: Country to Country in the United Kingdom and CMC Rocks in Australia in March. Additionally, in conjunction with MLB's Lou Gehrig Day celebrated across the league in
June, Zac Brown Band will perform a Cincinnati Reds Post-Game Benefit Concert, where a portion of proceeds from every ticket sold will benefit founding band member John Driskell Hopkins' Hop On A Cure Foundation, dedicated to finding a cure for ALS. Hopkins has been diagnosed with ALS.

CD reviews for Zac Brown Band

CD review - The Comeback If you have even a passing familiarity of Zac Brown's personal history starting around 2018, you know the inspiration for this CD's title.

CD review - Jekyll + Hyde Fans looking for the Zac Brown Band of 2005 won't find it in "Jekyll + Hyde" - there's nothing but an aftertaste of the Georgia group's chicken-fried origins. That might be why the album's name is so appropriate. Fans have gotten to know the country-folk band, but a deviant creeps in on all 16 tracks of its fourth album. And, like the classic story, Hyde stands out as more interesting. It hits hard, too. The opener, "Beautiful Drug," has an electric-pop ...
