From a press release:

Today, the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning Zac Brown Band announced dates for their highly anticipated summer 2019 outing The Owl Tour with cosmic country soul rock band Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real on select stops throughout the tour’s run, including Hersheypark Stadium on Thursday, Aug. 29 at 7 p.m.

The announcement and return to Hershey comes as the band prepares to release their upcoming new studio album featuring the hit lead single, “Someone I Used to Know,” currently widely available for streaming and download.

Tickets, which start at $39.10 (processing fees apply), go on sale next Friday, Feb. 8 at 10 a.m. and will be available at the Giant Center box office (550 Hersheypark Dr., Hershey), online at hersheyentertainment.com and ticketmaster.com, and by phone at 717-534-3911 or 800-745-3000.

Members of the “Zamily” will have access to tickets early through a pre-sale beginning Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 11 a.m. local. For more info on the Zamily, visit zacbrownband.com.

The three-time Grammy-winning artists in the Zac Brown Band have had five consecutive albums
reach the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 and four consecutive albums debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country
Albums chart, selling more than 25 million singles and eight million albums. They
have achieved 15 No. 1 radio singles and are the second act to top both the Country and Active Rock
formats. They have developed a reputation with critics and fans alike for a live show marked by strong
musicianship that defies genre boundaries.

The band’s latest album, “Welcome Home,” a return to their classic sound, was produced by
Grammy-winning producer Dave Cobb and In the Arena Productions. Rolling Stone praised the album’s
“southern storytelling, rootsy instrumentation, and the sonic swell of eight bandmates who, once again,
are firing on the same cylinder.” The No. 1 triumph of “Welcome Home” follows three platinum-selling
albums (“Uncaged,” “You Get What You Give,” and “Jekyll + Hyde”), the five-times-platinum “The Foundation,” and their 2013 project “The Grohl Sessions, Vol. 1.”

Both The Owl Tour and forthcoming album draw inspiration from the mythology and mystery surrounding the Great Horned Owl that can see perfectly in the night, serving as a guide when we need sight in even the darkest of moments.

The Owl Tour will mark Zac Brown Band’s third consecutive touring run within the span of a year. The summer 2019 shows will follow the band’s forthcoming spring Down the Rabbit Hole Live Tour, an extension of their highly successful summer 2018 Down the Rabbit Hole Live Tour dates, which broke multiple records, including the most consecutive sold-out shows at the historic Fenway Park. In 2018 alone, Zac Brown Band performed for over half a million fans live.

“With The Owl Tour, our fans can expect some new and unexpected sounds woven into the signature Zac Brown Band live music experience,” Zac Brown said. “The owl holds special meaning for us, and we look forward to sharing this with everyone.”

Zac Brown Band will partner with DemerBox, as an official tour sponsor, wanting fans to never run out of fun by providing charging stations at every stop of The Owl Tour. Zac Brown is co-owner of DemerBox, makers of the premium waterproof speaker that goes anywhere, gets loud, and has storage to hold your valuables. The brand is held under Brown’s recently launched entertainment and lifestyle parent company Zac Brown Collective.

The wristband policy will be in effect for this concert. Fans are permitted on the Hersheypark Entertainment Complex property beginning at 7 a.m. on Feb. 8. Two hours prior to the on-sale, fans will be directed in front of the Giant Center box office, where they will be issued a numbered wristband. Wristbands are available for one hour and, at the conclusion of that hour, a selected fan will randomly choose a wristband that will determine the line order. Once the line is in place, fans arriving after the wristbands were issued will be escorted to the end of the numbered line.
