Alabama Announces 50th Anniversary Tour

Alabama will celebrate a half-century of making music with their upcoming 50th Anniversary Tour in 2019. The 27-date tour will kick off in Detroit on Jan. 10, making additional stops in New Orleans, San Antonio, Pittsburgh, Salt Lake City and more. Additional dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

Alabama’s Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook formed the band in 1969 when the cousins journeyed to Myrtle Beach, S.C., to play at a bar called The Bowery.

“We never thought playing for tips at The Bowery in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, that 50 years later we would still playing arenas, stadiums and festivals,” says Randy. “Teddy, Jeff and I are humbled at the amount of fans that are coming out to see us. We are finding out that we are playing to three generations of fans who have followed us and our music from day one. The fans are the ones responsible for our continued success on the road and we love them.”

The Charlie Daniels Band, The Marshall Tucker Band, The Oak Ridge Boys, Restless Heart, Chris Janson, Tracy Lawrence and Exile will join Alabama on select dates.
