Alabama Announces Summer Minnesota Tour Stop With Eddie Montgomery
Alabama, the legendary multi-platinum-selling country band, has added another Minnesota stop on their 2023 'Roll On North America' tour and they're bringing a special guest. This will mark the second “Roll On” Tour in the band’s 50+ year history since 1984.
It was over 50 years ago when cousins Teddy Gentry, Randy Owen, and the late Jeff Cook left the cotton farms of Fort Payne, Alabama to spend the summer playing music in a Myrtle Beach, South Carolina bar called The Bowery. In a classic American tale of rags to riches, they rose from those humble beginnings to become international stars, selling 80 million albums and changing the face and sound of country music along the way.
Alabama introduced rock-style guitars, lights, pyrotechnics, and sounds to the country audience which has inspired many newer artists like Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, and Luke Bryan.
Now, there will be another chance to see them in Minnesota. Alabama will be at the Xcel Energy Center on Thursday, June 22, 2023. Joining them in St. Paul will be special guest Eddie Montgomery of Montgomery Gentry.
Ticket pre-sale starts via Ticketmaster on March 2 at 10:00 a.m. You can take advantage of this pre-sale by using the code: ROLLON. Tickets then go on sale to the general public on Friday, March 3 at 10:00 a.m.
It'll be great to have the band back in Minnesota as their track record speaks for itself. Alabama charted 43 #1 singles, including 21 #1 singles in a row, and has won dozens of CMA, GRAMMY®, and ACM Awards. They are members of the Country Music Hall of Fame, and the Musicians Hall of Fame and have their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In addition, they are world-class philanthropists who have raised millions of dollars for various charities.
