The Breakers Tour is the fourth and current headlining tour by American country music quartet, Little Big Town. The tour is in support of their eighth studio album The Breaker (2017). The tour began on September 28, 2017, in Manchester, UK[1] and will conclude on May 5 in Atlanta, Georgia.[2] The set is largely composed of songs from the band's two most recent albums (The Breaker and 2014's Pain Killer) alongside covers and some of the best known hits from their back-catalogue.

Little Big Town consists of Jimi Westbrook, Kimberly Schlapman, Karen Fairchild and Phillip Sweet.

Background

The band announced their six UK dates on February 7, 2017.[1] This is the first time Little Big Town have officially toured the UK aside from one-off performances and appearances at the C2C: Country to Country festival. The UK dates, which concluded in London during the inaugural "Country Music Week"[3] were ideal for the band as a full US tour in 2017 would be impossible due to their historic residency at the Ryman Auditorium which did not end until November. Additionally, the band announced that they would be headlining the 2018 Country to Country festival, becoming the first act to play the festival three times.[4]

Little Big Town revealed the initial twenty-six date US leg of their tour on September 20[2] and gave fans a preview of what to expect when they performed a cover of Don't Bring Me Down by the Electric Light Orchestra alongside Midland and Musgraves on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon[5]. The US leg begins in Oklahoma City and concludes in Estero

Following the conclusion of the tour, Little Big Town will embark on a co-headline tour with Miranda Lambert.
