It’s official. Multi-platinum country music group LONESTAR has reunited with original lead singer Richie McDonald and will tour and record a new album in 2012 to mark their 20th anniversary.
The first concert dates for the band’s four original members–keyboardist Dean Sams, drummer Keech Rainwater, lead guitarist Michael Britt and McDonald–will take place overseas February 26-March 4 (see tour itinerary and artist quotes below). Armed with an array of their classic songs including “Amazed”–a #1 country and #1 pop hit that kicked the doors wide open for country music at pop radio in the ‘90s–LONESTAR will perform in London (Wembley Arena), Belfast, Ireland (Odyssey Arena), Zurich, Switzerland (Hallenstadion) and Mannheim, Germany (SAP Arena) on a multi-artist bill with Reba McEntire, Ricky Scaggs and Little Big Town. Stay tuned for news about 2012 tour dates in North America.
