– Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley, who just launched a tour in support of his solo career, abruptly postponed most of the tour without explanation.
On his web site, Kelley wrote, "A portion of upcoming tour dates is moving to early 2016. For more information on rescheduled dates, check back here. Thanks for your continued support. Stay tuned for major album release news coming soon!?"
The lone tour date listed was in North Charleston, S.C. tonight.
Kelley announced "The Driver Tour" in mid-October with Maren Morris opening. The tour started in Cleveland on Nov. 28, followed by dates in Asbury Park, N.J. and New York. He cancelled dates in Charlotte, N.C. and Atlanta. A review of the New York indicated he played his own material plus that of Lady A and a few covers, including two from Tom Petty.
The tour included stops in St. Louis, Dallas, Houston, New Orleans, Chicago, Washington, Boston, Denver and concluding in Las Vegas on Jan. 28, 2016.
The Driver" was the first single from the CD and features Eric Paslay and Dierks Bentley.
Kelley's publicists could not be reached for comment.
