Colt Ford’s 2012 “Declaration of Independence” tour will make a stop in Lake Charles on June 1.
Ford is touring with label mates The Lacs, JB and the Moonshine Band, Rehab and Lenny Cooper on a 20-city tour that will end in Arkansas on June 9.
General admission tickets for the 7:30 p.m. Lake Charles Civic Center show are on sale now and start at $25. They can be purchased through www.etix.com and www.coltford.com. Additional tour dates will be announced at a later time.
Family friendly zones have been created at the venues.
“When I look out in the crowds I see people anywhere from 6 to 60 years old. I really wanted to set up an all ages tour and create family friendly zones to play for everyone that enjoys my music. This ‘Declaration of Independence’ tour will offer just that … fun for the whole family and then some,” Ford said.
At each location on the “Declaration of Independence” tour, fans are encouraged to bring their jacked-up and tricked-out trucks between 6-7 p.m. on concert dates. Lenny Cooper, along with the Average Joes Entertainment’s camera crew, will roam the parking lot to judge the trucks. Truck owners deemed having the biggest and baddest truck will VIP tickets (includes backstage access and best seats of the house). They will also be subject to additional prizes
Ford’s fourth studio album, “Declaration of Independence,” is to be released June 2011.
