ELI YOUNG BAND KICKS OFF 2016 WITH BACK TO BACK SOLD OUT SHOWS SELLING OVER 11,000 TICKETS
Nashville, TN — January 6, 2016 — Valory Music Artist Eli Young Band rang in the New Year in style with a pair of SOLD OUT shows in Dallas-Fort Worth, at the legendary dancehall Billy Bob’s Texas, selling over 5,500 tickets a night. The first show was a full band, high energy, hit laden blow out. The second show was a special acoustic co-headline with Josh Abbott Band that included both bands on stage at the same time.
On the second night, the two bands kicked off the show, without their lead singers, performing a cover of The Beatles “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band.” As the song merged into “A Little Help from My Friend,” singers Eli and Abbott joined the stage. With a playful camaraderie established, the bands swapped songs for nearly 2 hours while the enthusiastic crowd sang along.
“It was the perfect way to close out 2015 and a great way to kick off the New Year,” said James Young. “We’re blessed to have such loyal fans and a successful, growing career. Can’t wait to get our new music out to the fans in 2016!” The band will head back into the studio this month to finish recording with producers Ross Copperman and Jeremy Stover. The new album is due on Valory Music Company this year.
The band recently wrapped their headline Winter 2015 Tour and will resume touring next Tuesday in Charlotte, NC. Later this month, the band will be in Nashville performing at the 2016 All Star NHL All Star Concert Series on Sunday, January 31st.
