Sugarland cancels summer tour, which included hometown Atlanta stop

Sugarland has canceled its summer tour, which was scheduled to kick off June 4 in Toronto and hit the band’s Atlanta hometown near the end of the run, on July 31 at Ameris Bank Amphitheatre.

The 26-date outing was dubbed “There Goes the Neighborhood,” a precursor to a new Sugarland album of the same name. In a recent conversation with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Kristian Bush said the new Sugarland music is recorded and ready to go, but he now isn’t sure of the release timeline. (I’ll have more with Bush later this week in our Mic Check feature.)

The Atlanta date on the tour would have also featured Mary Chapin Carpenter and Tenille Townes. 

Sugarland most recently played Atlanta in November, as part of the “ATLive” concert series at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
