Concert tour news: Sugarland, Rod Stewart, Cyndi Lauper, Justin Timberlake

It's the first month of the new year and there's all sorts of concert tour news, so here we go...

Award-winning Country duo Sugarland announced their highly-anticipated return to the stage with the Still the Same Tour, beginning this spring in the US. With numerous Grammy, ACM and CMA Awards, chart-topping hits and multi-platinum sales, the pair’s Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush will bring their new live show to dozens of cities.

The first leg of the tour will feature opening acts Brandy Clark and Clare Bowen, while Frankie Ballard and Lindsay Ell will accompany the pair for the second half.

“We are thrilled to head back out on the road together as this has been a long time coming for the both of us!” said Nettles. “And to have Brandy, Clare, Frankie and Lindsay join us will make our return really special.”

“Can’t wait to get back out there and share our new music with the best fans on earth!” Bush continued. “It will be great to hear everyone singing the old favorites along with us all summer."

Tickets will go on sale starting Friday, January 12 at 10:00am local time. Fans in select cities will have the opportunity to purchase VIP packages which include the possibility to meet Sugarland, attend a pre-show VIP sound check, access to exclusive tour lithographs and more.

Since the band’s inception in 2002, Sugarland has sold nearly 10 million albums domestically, earned seven No. 1 singles to date and amassed over 260 million on-demand streams. The hitmakers recently released “Still The Same,” their first new music in seven years, aptly setting the tone for their joint venture with Big Machine Records and UMG Nashville; this summer’s tour shares its name.
