In progress since June, the outing will be extended through next June, with shows added in Atlantic City, Austin, Buffalo, Charleston, Oklahoma City and many others.

“It’s the hard working fans that have kept us on the road for over 25 years,” lead singer Randy Owen said. “The response to The American Farewell Tour has been so overwhelming. We’ve received emails and correspondence from all over the country asking us when we’re going to be in their area, telling us to ‘roll-on.’

“It’s been an emotional experience. Our fans are like loyal, faithful friends, and we want to return the same loyalty in person.”

Fans aren’t the only ones paying homage to Alabama, though. Rascal Flatts gave their recent CMA trophy to the band – who were also nominated – because they said Alabama deserved the accolade more.

Alabama are keeping the tickets to fan-friendly prices between $25-55, and are putting on a three-hour concert, which features the band performing a selection of songs from their collection of hits.

There are also a couple of special VIP packages to choose from. The Platinum Bama package goes for $1,000 and includes front-row seats, an escort backstage for a mix-and-mingle with other platinum ticket holders, professional photos taken with the band, and a personally autographed, custom made, numbered, limited edition Les Paul Jr. Epiphone collector’s guitar – available while supplies last.

The VIP Gold package is marked at $150 and includes seating in the first 25 rows, and an individually numbered, limited edition lithograph tour print.
