Thursday's Miranda Lambert concert postponed

Award winning country singer-songwriter Miranda Lambert has postponed this week's concerts in Charlotte, Lexington, and Greensboro due to the death of her father-in-law, Dick Shelton. Shelton, whose health had been in decline, died Tuesday surrounded by family in Oklahoma. Lambert, who is married to fellow country musician Blake Shelton (of NBC's hit reality series "The Voice"), was scheduled to play Charlotte's Bojangles' Coliseum Thursday, January 19.

Charlotte fans won't have to wait long for a rescheduled date though. Lambert's "On Fire" tour will resume Wednesday, January 25 at Bojangles' Coliseum. The Greensboro show is rescheduled for February 19. The Lexington, Kentucky date has been moved to February 26. Tickets for the original dates will be honored at these rescheduled shows.

Lambert (pictured at the 2011 CMA Awards with Shelton above) released the following statement today: “Thank you to the fans for all the support and prayers. This is a really difficult time for our family and the most important thing is being together. Tell your loved ones you love them. See you next week”


  1. While my heart goes out the family in their time of loss, and I understand completely the need to reschedule, my family and I are very disappointed and upset that the concert was rescheduled for a Sunday night -- a school night. We bought tickets for our two children as a Christmas gift, excited that the concert would be on a Saturday evening. Going to a concert at 7:30 p.m. on a Sunday night when we had originally purchased tickets for a Saturday night show is very troublesome. It would be after 11 p.m. on a school night before we'd even get home, much less get them calmed down from the excitement. Looks like we may need to get a refund. Huge disappointment.

  2. who cares, just go to the concert and hold them out of school
