Adam Doleac Reschedules Opening Dates Of Wrong Side Of A Sunrise Tour To Prioritize Family
With his wife’s due date quickly approaching, Doleac felt this was the best decision for his family.
Rising country star Adam Doleac took to Instagram on Wednesday (Feb. 7) to share an update with his fans regarding his upcoming Wrong Side of a Sunrise Tour.
This run of shows, which Doleac has dubbed his biggest headlining trek to date, was originally scheduled to kick off on February 21 in Nashville, TN and continue with shows throughout March, April and May. However, with his wife MacKinnon due to give birth to their first child in March, Doleac has made the difficult decision to push back the first eight shows of his tour.
“It Feels Super Important For Me To Be Home”
“As many of you know, me and MacKinnon are expecting our very first child and obviously we did our best to schedule around that, but that’s always such a guessing game and never quite perfect,” he explained in the video. “And the more that I thought about this, and I thought about it a lot, it just doesn’t quite feel right for me to be out on the road for the last week or the last two weeks of her pregnancy where really anything can happen. It feels super important for me to be home with her as we get ready to start our family.”
Instead of canceling these shows, Adam Doleac has opted to move the February, March and first three April dates to the back of the tour. This means night one of the tour will now take place on April 25 in Boston, MA.
The Affected Shows Include:
- Feb. 21 – Nashville, TN
- Feb. 23 – West Chester, OH
- Feb. 24 – Rootstown, OH
- March 1 – Baton Rouge, LA
- March 2 – Atlanta, GA
- April 18 – Pensacola, FL
- April 19 – Gainesville, FL
- April 20 – Lakeland, FL
The rescheduled dates for these shows will be announced “very soon,” according to the “Ain’t She” singer. Tickets already purchased for these shows will be valid for the new dates, and those who are unable to attend the new dates will have the option to refund their tickets.
He once again expressed his sincere apologies with fans and thanked them for understanding that his need to prioritize his family during this time.
“I know it’s for a really good reason and I know you guys will understand, but it’s still hard to move people’s plans and especially people that are excited to come see you. So my team is on the rescheduled dates right now. I really hope to have them today, but it won’t be long. I’ll have you those very soon,” he promised.
Additional Tour Dates + New Music On The Way
To make it up to fans, Adam Doleac revealed he will be adding even more dates to the tour to make sure he hits cities that weren’t previously on the lineup. Additionally, he will be dropping his next song, “Moving Target” on March 1 so that while he won’t be performing, fans will still have something to enjoy as they await his return to the stage.
“I love you guys. I hope you know I’m still so very excited to get out there and see you. I’ll just have a little baby boy with me next time I see you all,” the Mississippi native gushed before concluding his message. “It’s going to be a little bit longer, but it’s going to be even better when we finally get out there. So I love you guys. Let me know if I can do anything and I’ll see you very soon.”
The Wrong Side of a Sunrise Tour is still scheduled to visit cities in Connecticut, Maryland, Virginia, Iowa, Nebraska and Michigan with more to be announced. Graham Barham, Greylan James and Troy Cartwright have been tapped to join Doleac on the select dates of the run.
Expectations As A First-Time Parent
Adam Doleac and his wife tied the knot in a ceremony in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida in December 2022. A year later they announced they were expecting their first child, and recently shared that their newest member will be a baby boy.
During a recent interview with Country Now, he explained they have always wanted to be parents, but didn’t expect it to happen so quickly. Regardless, the couple appears to be overjoyed about entering this new chapter of life together.
He also anticipated that one of the most difficult parts of parenthood will be having to spend time away from home.
“It’ll make touring and everything a little more difficult and I’m interested to see how it makes me feel just leaving the house for the weekend, which is normally something I can’t wait to do. I’m sure it’ll be the same just with a little more missing you tagged onto it. We’ve decided we’re going to have a traveling baby, and we’re going to live life as best we can.”
