February 21, 2011 – Nashville, TN – Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Miranda Lambert kicked off The Revolution Continues tour this week by performing two sold out shows at the iconic Billy Bob’s Texas in Ft. Worth. Lambert is the first artist to ever sell out back-to-back shows in the history of the venue.
“We at Billy Bob’s Texas couldn’t be happier with Miranda Lambert. She was the only female artist to sell out our venue in 2010 and nearly 6000 fans per night came out last Friday and Saturday to give us the first back-to-back sellouts in our 30 year history,” said Robert Gallagher, Billy Bob’s Entertainment Director. Gallagher acknowledged both shows sold out in a record breaking 30 minutes this past December and all those in attendance were not disappointed.
“Glowing reviews are coming in from all Fort Worth and Dallas media outlets praising her energetic, passionate and heartfelt performances,” said Gallagher. “Thanks to Miranda, band and staff for giving us these wonderful milestones, especially in our 30th anniversary year.”
During Friday night’s performance, Lambert emotionally dedicated “The House That Built Me” to her grandmother who had passed away less than a week before.
