Sugarland Extend Incredible Machine Tour Into 2011

Sugarland wrapped up their hugely successful Incredible Machine tour a couple months ago. Playing 63 dates all over the country, the duo, comprised of Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush, along with several opening acts including Danny Gokey and Little Big Town, performed in front of sold-out crowds in support of the new album of the same name. Apparently, the pair had so much fun on the road, they’ll continue the tour into 2011.

The pair plan to head back out on the road later this year, with a surprising blend of opening acts. Joining them for this year’s leg of the tour will be pop artist Sara Bareilles and folk/rock singer Matt Nathanson, with country favorites Little Big Town staying out on the road for the rest of the tour.

Sugarland will kick off the next leg of the Incredible Machine tour with a performance on March 3 at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. They will then travel to Little Rock, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Las Vegas and Atlanta, as well as perform two shows in Los Angeles. The new dates can’t come soon enough for the female lead.

“I think of the shows as something sacred,” Jennifer tells The Boot. “Music is a performance art, there’s no question, but at the end of the day it’s a sacred space, a communion, between us and the audience.”

The pair are taking some time off during the first few months of the year, before they head out in the spring. Jennifer can be found next week performing a rare solo gig at the Murchison Performing Arts Center in Denton, Texas, to support the Attic Community Playground. “Attic Community Playground is one of my dearest charities,” says the singer. “Art programs within schools continue to be cut. To me this is a very sad fact. I not only enjoy a career in the arts, but I also enjoyed and benefited from the performing arts as a kid. Music, band, chorus, drama — each of them provided me with outlets of emotional exploration and self expression, and offered me an avenue to develop self confidence.”

Sugarland’s current single, ‘Little Miss’ is in the Top 30. See tour dates below.
