The Zac Brown Band will launch its Black Out the Sun Tour on May 19 in Hartford, Connecticut. Drake White & the Big Fire will open shows on the tour of stadiums and amphitheaters.

They’ll be returning to Boston’s Fenway Park for another two-night stand on Aug. 20-21. In 2015, they sold out three consecutive nights at the home of the Boston Red Sox.
