Zac Brown Band will hit the road this year. The band announced their 2022 Out in the Middle Tour on social media Friday (Jan. 14).

The 32-date tour will launch on April 22 in Greenville, S.C., and will bounce around the country before wrapping up in Phoenix on Nov. 19. There are two dates scheduled in Canada, as well. Robert Randolph Band will serve as a special guest.

"Performing in front of millions of fans around the world is one of the most electrifying and humbling feelings," Brown says in a press release. "We’re so excited to go back out on the road and keep the unbelievable momentum going from the Comeback Tour. It’s been such an incredible year for the band, debuting some of the best music we’ve ever made, and we are thrilled to continue playing live for our amazing fans."

The tour will put Zac Brown Band in some of the most iconic music venues in the nation, like Chicago's Wrigley Field, the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and more. The band will return to Boston's Fenway Park, where they currently hold the record for the most consecutive sold-out shows.

The Out in the Middle Tour will also take Brown back to his hometown of Atlanta.

It's been awhile since fans have seen a full tour from Zac Brown Band — ZBB were one of the first country acts to scrap their 2020 tour due to the pandemic. In 2021 they embarked on the Comeback Tour in August, but had to cancel a few shows after Brown tested positive for COVID-19. That tour resumed on Oct. 8.

Tickets for the Out in the Middle Tour go on sale on Jan. 21. Fans planning on attending the Boston show on July 15 will be able to purchase theirs on Thursday, Jan. 20. Tickets for the final show, in Phoenix on Nov. 19, will be available to the public on a date that is to-be-determined.

5 Hottest Country Tours of Summer 2021


There’s a lot to consider when making a list of the hottest tours of summer 2021, including star power, opening acts, venues and set lists. Add to that concerns and cautions as the country begins to emerge from a pandemic and that no one has seen live music in 14 months. It’s quite likely you’re craving live music like a drug that’s just out of reach ... or you’re scared shirtless to surround yourself with 10,000 fans indoors. 

All the emotions about reengaging with the live country music community are valid. While at first it seemed September would be start-up month, several tours on this Hot List begin in July and August at outdoor venues across America. The No. 3 tour and No. 1 tour on our list are mostly indoors, but both are banking on increased safety that comes from a majority of the population having the COVID-19 vaccine. 

Once those lights go down, all of these worries will be carried away by the buzz in the air (and maybe, from your cup). Find five total professionals on this list of Hot Summer Tours, each bringing a total stage show, plus several in-demand opening acts with a proven track record of live entertainment at the highest level. There’s no fat on any of these country tours — if you stick to the tailgate through an opener’s set, you’ll truly be missing something special. 

As always, let us know who you can’t wait to see on tour in 2021 via Twitter or email
