Miranda Lambert Juices Up Summer Tour with 21 Additional Dates
Miranda Lambert just kicked off her new tour with Dierks Bentley last month, but she’s already looking ahead in the year, adding a slew of new dates to her current tour itinerary.
First, she’s added a handful of dates in the spring, notably in the latter portion of May, starting May 10 with a show at the Sleep Train Amphitheatre in Wheatland, California and running through a new show at the Winstar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma. These new dates will surround her previously announced May 25 concert as part of the Bayou Country Festival at LSU Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, Lousiana.
Most of the remaining new dates will take place this summer, stepping around previously announced festival appearances. She will start things off at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden New Jersey, and now has dates scheduled through a September 21 concert at the Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Florida. It would appear Mrs. Lambert doesn’t care to take very much time off this year.
Lambert and Bentley started their “Locked and Reloaded Tour” last month, and is the second time the two have toured together. The name is taken from the 2006 tour “Locked and Loaded.”
“It’s fun, it’s like a big jungle gym for adults,” Bentley told journalists about the tour. “This is one of those tours where we have the chance to go back and relive those high school days, because we’ve been out with Miranda and her camp before. We wanted it to be a great tour, so I got the checkbook out and started writing checks! We have a new set and for the first time, video screens. We talked about what we wanted to do and decided to pretend it was our last tour.”
Lambert received five Academy of Country Music Awards nominations on February 13, including Entertainer of the Year and Female Vocalist of the year.
