Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s Soul2Soul Tour has hit an unusual snag in its normal programming for this weekend’s run of shows as Saturday night’s (April 22) show in Atlanta has been postponed for a day.
The superstar couple was scheduled to perform in Atlanta’s Phillips Arena but has been pushed back due to the Atlanta Hawks making it into the NBA Playoffs. The Hawks will host the Washington Wizards in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference playoff series, thus taking precedent over the McGraw/Hill show. Fans won’t have to wait too long to see the “Speak to a Girl” singers as they will take the stage in Atlanta on Sunday, April 23.
“Congratulations to the Atlanta Hawks! As a result of the Hawks advancing to the NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs and hosting Game 3 against the Washington Wizards on Saturday, April 22 at Philips Arena, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s Soul2Soul The World Tour 2017 Atlanta show will move to Sunday, April 23 at Philips Arena. All tickets for the Saturday show will be honored on Sunday,” the couple said in a shared statement to fans.
Tickets purchased for the original show date will be honored for the new night.
This isn’t the first time a country concert has been postponed from sporting events. In 2015, Garth Brooks had to cancel his stops in Tampa, Florida as the Tampa Bay Lightning advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals.
McGraw and Hill’s Soul2Soul Tour will take them on the road through October and will feature a number of different opening acts for each weekend run.
