The Zac Brown Band and Florida Georgia Line are burning up the back roads on their tours this summer and fall. Fans seem to be clamoring for tickets and the prices on the secondary market are rising.
The first North American leg of Zac Brown Band's Jekyll and Hyde Tour kicked off on May 1 at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena. The first leg was a massive one for the country band, who played nine stadium shows, including three consecutive shows at Boston's Fenway Park from August 7-9 and two shows on August 21 and 22 at CitiField in New York City. After a few short weeks off the road, the Georgia-based ZBB will continue their second leg in North American beginning October 7 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and tickets to see Zac Brown Band for the upcoming tour leg are up 13% from the first North American run.
