Win a Zac Brown Band Experience and Help Support the USO

zac-brown-band

Zac Brown Band just announced a CrowdRise Experience to support the USO in honor of the band’s upcoming private performance at the 2016 USO Gala. Fans can visit their CrowdRise campaign at www.crowdrise.com/USOGala and donate for a chance to win a trip to Washington, D.C., to attend the 2016 USO Gala on October 20, 2016, and see Zac Brown Band perform live.

For 75 years, the USO has been a leading military support nonprofit, serving the men and women in uniform and their families, throughout their service. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side. The USO Gala is an annual, star-studded awards dinner recognizing service members from each military service, the National Guard and Coast Guard, for their heroism.

Strong supporters of America’s men and women in uniform, Zac Brown first volunteered with the USO in 2008. Following that experience, he linked up with his band and went back out on two more USO tours – the Fort Hood Community Strong event in 2009, followed by a USO tour to Iraq and Kuwait the following year, where they filmed their music video “Free.” Together, Brown and Zac Brown Band have participated in three USO tours and entertained more than 31,000 service members stationed in eight countries.

The fundraiser launched on CrowdRise on September 14. Every $10 donated is one entry to win two tickets to see Zac Brown Band perform live at the 2016 USO Gala on October 20, 2016, in Washington, D.C. Prize includes round-trip airfare and accommodations. For official rules click here.

Zac Brown Band is Headed Down Under

zac-brown-band

Already announced as a headline act for the 28th Annual Bluesfest in 2017, three-time GRAMMY winners Zac Brown Band can reveal that they will take the stage for two special all ages shows in Melbourne and Sydney in April.

Returning to Australia two years on from their ground-breaking debut Antipodean headline tour, Zac Brown Band will captivate Melbourne audiences at Margaret Court Arena on Wednesday 19th April, taking in the ICC Sydney Theatre on Friday 21st April. Tickets are on sale Tuesday 27th September at 10am local time.

One of the most prolific acts in the world, Zac Brown Band has earned an historic series of fifteen #1 hit US radio singles and is only the second act to top both the country and active rock formats.

Their latest platinum-certified album ‘JEKYLL + HYDE’ (Southern Ground Artists/John Varvatos Records/Big Machine Label Group/Republic Records) marks the band’s fourth consecutive #1 debut on the Billboard 200 chart. With three platinum-selling albums, ‘Uncaged,’ ‘You Get What You Give,’ ‘JEKYLL + HYDE’ and 5X platinum ‘The Foundation,’ along with their 2013 project ‘The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1,’ the band has sold over 25 million singles and eight million albums to date.

Rolling Stone said of the diverse ‘Jekyll + Hyde’; “On their fourth LP, they bang out styles with such preposterous ease; Seventies Philly soul, old-timey gospel, Celtic folk, metal, reggae, jazz ­ they could incorporate as a single-band music-placement agency.”

Over the years, Zac Brown Band has collaborated with the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, Alan Jackson, Mumford and Sons and more. 2014 saw them team up with Foo Fighters on Congregation, a song from their new album Sonic Highways, which appeared on the band’s HBO series of the same name. Brown performed Black Sabbath’s War Pigs with the band on Late Night with David Letterman. Most recently, Zac Brown performed Fortunate Son with Dave Grohl and Bruce Springsteen on the HBO Veterans Day Concert for Valor broadcast. Zac Brown Band have a slew of late night television performances under their belt, including an impressive rendition of ‘Heavy Is The Head’ for Saturday Night Live, featuring Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell.

During their ‘BLACK OUT THE SUN’ 2016 Tour, Zac Brown Band broke three Fenway Park records with back-to-back sold-out concerts; the most tickets sold for a single concert, the most tickets sold over two nights of concerts by the same artist, and the first band to sell out seven consecutive shows over three years. The band reached another milestone in Camden, NJ, packing 25,227 people into BB&T Pavilion — the best-attended show in the venue’s 22-year history.

Additionally, Zac Brown Band has played some of the world’s most iconic venues, from the Hollywood Bowl to Madison Square Garden. The Black Out The Sun tour received widespread acclaim during its 30-date run, with The Oakland Press calling the show “musically dynamic and filled with surprises”, while The Boot applauded the performance for its “spot-on harmonies” and “eclectic covers”.

If Zac Brown Band’s 2015 sold out Australian performances are anything to go by, local audiences are in for one hell of a show come April next year!

Watch Zac Brown Band Play LIVE From Fenway Park

Next Saturday and Sunday night, August 20th & 21st, music fans will pack Boston’s Fenway Park to see Zac Brown Band play a sold-out two-night stand, extending the band’s streak to a record seven consecutive sold-out shows at the historic ballpark. For the first time, fans who are not able to attend the concerts can tune into nugs.tv to watch the shows live. Both nights will be available as Pay-Per-View webcasts at nugs.tv and in the nugs.net app for AppleTV.

As an added value for the webcasts, Zac Brown Band will perform a special “no-repeat” weekend with a different set each night, with no song repeated over the course of the two nights. The FullHD 1080p webcasts are now available for pre-purchase in both HD and Standard Definition at nugs.tv on Macs, PCs, iOS and Android devices, and the latest AppleTV via the nugs.net app. Fans can watch the shows live or on demand for 48 hours following the live performances, with full DVR-like functionality.

“It’s a thrill to go live from Fenway Park, and we know Zac Brown Band’s fans are going to love this. We’re excited to bring the nugs.tv webcast experience to a new audience next weekend as well as to fans who aren’t able to attend the shows,” says nugs.net Founder and CEO Brad Serling.

Zac Brown Band broke a record in 2015 as the first band to sell out a three-night run at Fenway Park. They have sold out seven shows at Fenway Park in total.

American Idol Season 11 winner and multi-platinum seller Phillip Phillips to join previously announced three-time Grammy award winners Zac Brown Band and multi-platinum rock band Train for the Wildcat Kickoff Concert being held on September 10 at Bill Snyder Family Stadium.

Phillips first rose to fame as the 11th season winner of American Idol, and has since released two albums: 2012’s “The World From the Side of the Moon” and 2014’s “Behind the Light.” Both records were a commercial success with folk pop hits like the 5x platinum smash “Home” and the critically acclaimed “Raging Fire.” The 25-year-old is currently at work on his third studio LP.

The Wildcat Kickoff is the first concert held in the Bill Snyder Family Stadium in nearly 30 years and is the very first event to kick off the 2016 college football season.
