The Zac Brown Band hopes you’ll take a deep dive with them this summer by catching the “Down the Rabbit Hole Live” tour.
While the monster country band from Georgia will play a few stadiums — Boston’s Fenway Park and San Francisco’s AT&T Park among them — the 27 dates include a stop Aug. 2 at Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls.
“Down The Rabbit Hole Live: Zac Brown Band 2018” is the eighth North American headlining tour for the act, known for hits such as “Chicken Fried,” “Colder Weather,” “Beautiful Drug” and “Sweet Annie,” according to a recent news release from concert promoter Live Nation.
“‘Down The Rabbit Hole Live’ is a reference to the never-ending pursuit of excellence,” says lead singer and band namesake Zac Brown in the release. “This summer, we’ll bring the fans along that journey with us.”
The band’s most recent album is last year’s “Welcome Home.”
While support for various dates will be provided by OneRepublic and Leon Bridges, no opening act is listed for the Blossom show.
Stream of the week: I haven’t decided how much I dig the newly released single from singer-guitarist Jack White, “Connected by Love,” but the hard-charging, soul-infused rock cut has kept me coming back since it dropped a few days ago. It’s the opening track on White’s next album, “Boarding House Reach,” out March 23.
Truth be told, I’m more into the single’s B-side, “Respect Commander” — a cool mish-mash of a song with some screaming guitar that is listed as the album’s ninth cut. The former White Stripes frontman also announced announced some tour dates; the crazy-talented musician will be back in Northeast Ohio June 6 at Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica.
