Alabama is gearing up for their "American
Farewell Tour", a 40-city production produced by Clear Channel Entertainment
in association with Land of Os, Inc. Kicking off New Year's Eve in Las Vegas, the
only other confirmed date is March 16 at Houston's Reliant Stadium, but a string of cities have been confirmed.
As part of this legendary country band's silver anniversary career, the "American
Farewell Tour" will feature a new set and state-of-the-art production. The
main portion of the tour will run June through November 2003.
Alabama's new album, In The Mood: The Love
Songs, goes on sale February 4, and is expected to play an integral
role in propelling advance ticket sales for the tour. Included
on this special interactive CD is a "passport" feature that
enables the owner to immediately purchase "American Farewell
Tour" concert tickets before they go on sale to the public
March 15. According to TicketMaster, this exclusive option
has never before been offered in any format. Those without computer
access will still be able to buy advance tickets by using
secret passwords found inside the CD package. In addition, fans
will be able to access inside information about the tour and
the band through the CD.
Special VIP packages will also be available for advance
purchase through the CD. The top package, "Platinum Bama",
offers die-hard fans front row seats,
backstage passes, a photo "Meet & Greet", plus an exclusive
limited edition Epiphone by Gibson electric guitar. The
"American Farewell Tour" custom guitars are
all numbered, autographed, and features the official tour logo.
Other VIP packages will also include various limited edition
As a special "thanks" for 25 years of support, Alabama
is also offering an unprecedented "Gift With Ticket" bonus to
all fans that attend their final concerts. The official
full-color, 72-page commemorative tour program book
(a $19.95 value) will be distributed free to
each individual ticket holder at "The American Farewell Tour".
