Zac Brown Band announces Summer 2020 “Roar with the Lions Tour” presented by Polaris

Exciting news that the Zac Brown Band has announced details about a Summer 2020 tour. You can read my review of the band's 2012 concert on The Orange County Register site here or my Rock 'n' Roll Truth blog here. The ZBB puts on a truly epic show...

Atlanta, GA (January 9, 2019) – Today, multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning, Zac Brown Band announced their new Summer 2020 Tour, “Roar with the Lions Tour” presented by Polaris. 

The “Roar with the Lions Tour” will feature music from the band’s entire discography mixed with a dynamic selection of genre-crossing cover songs that are a signature mark of each Zac Brown Band show. The tour is grounded in the historic characterization of the lion, depicted as a symbol of strength, courage, and loyalty. Always counted upon to bring sunshine and warmth into the lives of others, lions are fearless, treating one another with dignity and respect, bravely walking through the forests they rule. At each show, fans can expect fiery performances and a rollicking good time. Special guest Gregory Alan Isakov will join the tour May 24 through June 27 and St. Paul and The Broken Bones will open the Wrigley Field show on September 9. Please see itinerary below.

“Our summer tour is inspired by the folklore surrounding the figure of the lion. I am a Leo, and all of the guys in the band are lions,” said Zac Brown. “They exemplify strength, courage, intelligence, and loyalty, and work in tandem to defend their territory and one another. The crowd is our pride – rooted in togetherness and fiercely loyal. They always show up for each other, no matter what, just like our fans always show up for us. We can’t wait to hear you roar with us!”

Zac Brown Band is one of the most successful and consistent touring acts of the last decade and regularly claim a top spot in Pollstar’s Live75 charts. The Boston Globe praised the band’s live show saying , “[Zac Brown Band’s] blend of chops, spirit, and knowing exactly how to please a crowd has made them one of the summer concert season’s most reliable draws, always ready for a good time but also keenly aware of how to keep an audience on its toes.” Zac Brown

Band currently holds the record for most consecutive sold out shows at the historic Fenway Park and was recently named by The Boot one of the ’10 Best Country and Americana Live Acts of the 2010’s.”
