Vince Gill Announces Summer Tour With Wendy Moten
Vince Gill is preparing to go on tour this summer with 18 dates across North America. Wendy Moten will be joining the Eagles guitarist on the road, with dates kicking off on July 7 at the Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts in Greensboro, N.C.
While Gill has been touring with the Eagles upon live music’s return following the pandemic, the newly announced tour will be his first time touring with his band since 2019.
“When all of touring stopped back in March of 2020, it was a good time for me to take a break from the road,” Gill said in a statement. “Now the Eagles are touring again,a nd that’s a blast! But I’m also eager to get back on the bus and visit some places and fans that I haven’t seen for a while.”
The first round of dates will see stops in Birmingham, Ala., Ft. Worth, Texas, Memphis, Tenn., Atlanta and more. Added dates are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
Moten has toured with Gill for several years as a harmony singer, and Gill produced her most recent album, I’ve Got You Covered.
“I’ve always enjoyed sharing a stage with Wendy, whether she was singing harmonies for me, or when we were in The Time Jumpers together,” Gill said. “It’s always been my wish that more of the world could hear her, so being able to feature her each night of this tour is something I look forward to.”
Gill’s last solo headlining tour saw the artist selling 1,281 tickets and grossing $120,935 during their show in Morristown, N.J, according to reports submitted to Pollstar’s Boxoffice. His show at the Kodak Center in Rochester, N.Y., gsold 1,853 tickets and grossed $145,987.
The Eagles had one of the highest-grossing tours in 2021, and the band sold 23, 596 tickets over the course of two shows in San Francisco last October, grossing $6.3 million, according to reports submitted to Pollstar’s Boxoffice. The band’s three shows at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., sold 39,091 tickets and grossed a whopping $8.9 million.
Tickets for the upcoming tour dates are currently on sale, and Gill’s band will include Paul Franklin on steel, Billy Thomas on drums, Jimmy Sloas on bass, and John Jarvis on keyboards.
