Miranda Lambert Books Club Show as ‘Rehearsal’ for Highway Vagabond Tour
Miranda Lambert will begin her 2017 Highway Vagabond Tour on Jan. 26 — but a few lucky fans will get to see the country superstar in concert two days early. Lambert has announced a club show, billed as a “rehearsal” for her arena trek.
On Jan. 24, Lambert and her band will perform at Joe’s Bar in Chicago, Ill.; Natalie Hemby will join Lambert as her special guest. Proceeds from the show will benefit the Miranda Lambert Women Creators Fund, a scholarship for female Belmont University students pursuing careers in the music industry.
Tickets for Lambert’s Joe’s Bar show will cost $50, plus a $7.50 service charge; fans can submit a request form to have the the chance to purchase tickets through the Joe’s website. The show will begin at 8PM (doors are at 7PM) and is 21 and up.
Lambert has made a habit of playing club shows as “practice” for her tours: In early 2016, Lambert played Nashville’s City Winery as an extension of her 2015 Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour, also to benefit her Belmont University scholarship fund. Before launching her Certified Platinum Tour in early 2015, Lambert played a similarly small club show, at Nashville’s Exit/In.
Lambert’s Highway Vagabond Tour is set to begin in Evansville, Ind. — located about 300 miles south of Chicago — at the city’s Ford Center; for her trek’s opening acts, Lambert has tapped Old Dominion and Aubrie Sellers. Additionally, Lambert will headline the 2017 Taste of Country Music Festival in June.
