AceShowbiz - Lady A (previously Lady Antebellum) have postponed their "Request Line Tour". When making the announcement on social media, the country trio revealed that they made the decision to support member Charles Kelley amid his sobriety journey.
The group broke the news on Thursday, August 4. "Request Line Tour Ticket Holders. We have decided to postpone our Request Line Tour until next year. Being on the road with our fans is our greatest joy, so it was a hard but important decision to make," they wrote on in a statement.
"We are a band, but more importantly…we're family. We're proud to say that Charles has embarked on a journey to sobriety," they added. "So, right now in order to be the healthiest, strongest and most creative band we can be, Lady A will take the time with the support of our families and team of professionals to walk through this together."
The band went on to note, "It's early on this road, but we are determined to do what will best set us up for many more years together. We're grateful for your patience." They continue, "This update is coming in real time, but in the coming days, your point of purchase will be in touch with new ticket information. We're looking forward to making 2023 our best year yet! With love, Lady A."
Lady A announced the 21-date tour back in April. The group, which also consists of Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood, was supposed to kick it off in Nashville, Tennesse on August 13 and wrap it in Indianapolis on October, 29.
"We're taking requests! No two shows will be the same on the #RequestLineTour that's for sure!" they declared on Instagram at that time. "Be sure to sign-up for the tour pre-sale code on our website."
