The first leg of the tour kicks off later this month on April 30 at White Oak Lawn in Houston’s, with dates through May. The new dates begin July 27 at SEC Arena in Kansas City, M.

“After the announcement of our tour with In This Moment, the response was so great that we decided to do another run together,” said Lzzy Hale, frontwoman, Halestorm. “It’s going to be so much fun to tour with our good friends! See you all on the road!”

“We have been thrilled with the response our concerts have been receiving from both guests and promoters” said Doug McClaine, general manager, Albany Capital Center. “The space really seemed to deliver on everything from acoustics to overall patron experience. Having the opportunity to host concerts at the Albany Capital Center is a great way to continue to show the building’s versatility, and we look forward to a great show with Halestorm.”

Acknowledged as one of the most vital and iconic bands in modern hard rock, Halestorm is continuing work on their hugely anticipated fourth studio album. In the meantime, the GRAMMY® Award-winning band continues to celebrate the blockbuster success of their acclaimed third album, “INTO THE WILD LIFE.” That collection made a stunning top five debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its April 2015 release while also entering Billboard’s “Top Hard Rock Albums” tally at number one, both marking Halestorm’s highest chart placement to date.

The ACC’s open floor plan allows for stage setup anywhere on the second floor multipurpose room and offers 26 foot high ceilings.
