This will be the first year, since 2006, he has skipped Colorado...booo-hoooo. He usually comes here twice a year so I'm hoping for a date early next year....then again later, lol.
Hey, a girl can dream, right?
I'm hoping for some shows in East Tennessee!!
You can plan to mostly scrap smaller shows. The ECB will be playing much fewer small gigs than in the past.
Look for new tour days to be announced in the coming months for the 2012 headline tour. The new tour will be held off until the Locked & Loaded tour is over, at least in markets that L&L has yet to visit. Promoters usually wait a certain amount of time before announcing an artist to visit that market again to avoid saturating it.
Like Corey said, there are going to be just a select few dates before the 2012 tour. Eric wants to spend a little time off the road after his baby boy is born before the guys hit it hard again next year.
I heard in a recent interview that he and the guys were going to play only a couple of shows after the Locked and Loaded Tour with Toby. One of those shows is the Sunday show with Zac Brown Band at the Southern Ground Festival. Haven't heard about the other show or couple shows. He did mention taking time off when the kid was born so we may not get to see them till early next year....BUT ya never know!!!!
