Sugarland to hit New England in October

, Staff

On the final lap of their “Incredible Machine”, Sugarland will make a pair of stops in New England this October. The country favorites will perform shows in New Hampshire and Connecticut with special guest Sara Bareilles.

Sugarland will perform at the Verizon Wireless Arena on Thursday, October 13. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $26.50 to $56.50, are now on sale through Ticketmaster. The following night, they’ll begin a two night stand at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. Tickets for the October 14 and 15 shows are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $56 and $76.

The country duo of Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush will be closing out their two year tour in support of 2010’s The Incredible Machine. The two co-produced and co-wrote all the songs on the album, their fourth studio effort and follow-up to 2008’s Love on the Inside. The Incredible Machine has been powered by the success of hit singles “Stuck Like Glue”, “Little Miss” and “Tonight”.

Sugarland, the reigning Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music Top Vocal Duo award winners, are back on the road after the tragic accident in August that killed 7 people when the stage fell before the band’s set at the Indiana State Fair. “This Incredible Machine is more than a tour and more than a set,” the band said in the final paragraph of a lengthy letter to fans following the accident. “We have always celebrated music as a Healer. While music cannot change the events and losses at the Indiana State Fair, it can hopefully serve as a ritual and a balm to provide comfort and facilitate healing in this time of great sorrow. We hope to see you all soon.”

Bareilles continues to tour behind the success of her sophomore album, Kaleidoscope Heart, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 after its release last September. “King of Anything”, the album’s lead single, was nominated for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the this year’s Grammy Awards, though ultimately lost to Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”. Kaleidoscope Heart‘s second single “Uncharted” has created significant buzz with a music video featuring an array of artists including Adam Levine, Josh Groban, Pharrell Williams, Ben Folds and more.
