21 Nov Old Dominion Rocks Crowds at 5 Straight Sold-Out Shows on “Meat and Candy Tour”
Old Dominion, the five-piece band who has toured more than 150 dates in 2016 with 14 shows to go, spent the last week with 9,850 fans, packing houses throughout the country with five consecutive sold-out shows. The band ended the string of headlining performances with two nights at Joe’s Live Rosemont (Saturday, Nov. 19 and Sunday, Nov. 20), just eight months after becoming the first act to sell out Joe’s Live Rosemont on March 1, 2016. Performing to a full house two nights in a row at Joe’s Live Rosemont is special for Old Dominion, as Chicago was the first major market the band sold out in 2014 at the venue’s sister location, Joe’s on Weed.
“We spent so many years wondering if anyone at all would show up to our shows,” said Old Dominion’s lead singer, Matthew Ramsey. “So, when we step out on the stage and see the people that are coming out to the Meat and Candy Tour, it’s a shock every time. The fact that these shows keep selling out too – it’s really shaping up to be a tour that we will never forget. What a way to end an incredible year for us.”
With eight No.1s between the band of songwriters, most recently “I Met A Girl” (William Michael Morgan) and “Make You Miss Me” (Sam Hunt), Old Dominion’s current single “Song For Another Time” is at No. 4 on the Billboard and Mediabase charts. The song, which People calls “their most charming, and certainly their most unique [single], yet,” is the third from their debut album Meat and Candy, following the two-week No.1 smash “Break Up With Him” and RIAA-certified GOLD follow-up hit, “Snapback.”
After a few days off for Thanksgiving spent with family, the “songwriter-driven, road-tested” (HITS DAILY DOUBLE) band will hit the road again for the last leg of their first ever headlining tour. The band will play nine sold-out shows in December, with stops in Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco and more. In spring 2017, Old Dominion will join Miranda Lambert’s Highway Vagabond Tour.
