Lady Antebellum announced as first act for 2019 season of Innsbrook After Hours

Tickets go on sale for the first concert in the 2019 series this Friday, January 25th.

Published

Innsbrook After Hours announced that Lady Antebellum will open its 2019 concert season at the SERVPRO of Richmond Pavilion on May 4th. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 25, 2019 at 10:00 AM atwww.innsbrookafterhours.com. A limited number of $26 Early Bird General Admission tickets are available for one week only.

Since teaming up in 2006, Lady Antebellum has sold more than 18 million units while earning nine No. One hits on the Country radio charts. They have won seven GRAMMY awards (including both “Record” and “Song of the Year” for “Need You Now” in 2010), and they were the first artists in the history of the CMA Awards to win Single of the Year in back-to-back years.

When it came time to update their sound for their 2017 release Heart Break, another key element was producer busbee, whose previous work with Lady A includes the No. One his “Our Kind of Love.” The group’s desire to shake things up was made evident by the album’s swaggering first single “You Look Good,” complete with a funky horn arrangement. Elsewhere, Heart Break ranges from the wry call to independence of the title track to the sweet melancholy of “Somebody Else’s Heart.” The trio had a hand in writing all but two songs on the album, resulting in their most intimate and heartfelt work to date.

Entering into its 34th season, Innsbrook After Hours has brought some of the greatest concerts to the Central Virginia area. Holiday pricing for Season Passes has been extended through the end of January. Additional shows for the 2019 season will be announced soon.

Tickets for Lady Antebellum on Saturday, May 4, 2018 at Innsbrook After Hours go on sale this Friday, January 25 at 10:00 AM at www.innsbrookafterhours.com or by phone at 1-800-514-ETIX (3849).  $26 Early Bird tickets are available for one week only. Gates are set to open at 5:00 PM. Show starts at 6:00 PM. All events are rain or shine. No refunds. Innsbrook After Hours is located at the SERVPRO of Richmond Pavilion, 4901 Lake Brook Dr. Glen Allen, VA.

Tonight’s Friday Cheers is Cancelled Due to Weather

For tonight’s Friday Cheers ticket holders, your tickets will automatically be refunded by Tickets-to-Buy for the face value within 14 business days of the cancellation notice.

Published

This is the first time that I can remember that Friday Cheers has pulled the plug due to weather concerns. Understandable due to the forecast of high winds.

Hot off the press release printing press.

For the safety of our patrons, artists and staff we must unfortunately cancel tonight’s Friday Cheers with Japanese Breakfast and Abby Huston. We understand this is a tremendous disappointment, and we share that sentiment.

“We’ve produced hundreds of outdoor events and have hosted hundreds of thousands of patrons, but I don’t believe that we have ever had a more definitive forecast predicting unsafe weather as we have for this evening,” said Lisa Sims, CEO of Venture Richmond. “We have been advised by several meteorologists that severe weather is certain and, frankly, cancelling is our only choice.”

For tonight’s Friday Cheers ticket holders, your tickets will automatically be refunded by Tickets-to-Buy for the face value within 14 business days of the cancellation notice.

Thank you for understanding this difficult decision.
