NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Stars of the Lionsgate-produced and distributed hit series “Nashville” played two sold-out shows at Manchester’s O2 Apollo Saturday. Following the shows, tour producer, Opry Entertainment, donated £10,000 to the British Red Cross “U.K. Solidarity Fund” on behalf of the touring cast, Clare Bowen, Chris Carmack, Charles Esten, Sam Palladio and Jonathan Jackson. The fund was set up by the British Red Cross to help victims of terror attacks throughout the U.K.
On Friday, “Nashville in Concert” played to a record crowd of more than 11,000 enthusiastic fans in Glasgow’s The SSE Hydro.
The stars return to kick off the U.S. leg of the tour on July 23 in Orlando, FL. The U.S. tour is set to feature cast members Clare Bowen, Chris Carmack, Charles Esten, and Jonathan Jackson. Shows are on sale now with a limited number of VIP Packages including cast meet & greets available for all shows.
