After a two-year hiatus from music, the seven-time Grammy Award-winning group Lady Antebellum brought Nashville to Uptown for an unforgettable evening. Selling over 18 million albums, the multi-platinum trio performed at the historic United Palace Theatre in Washington Heights for a crowd of 1400 fans. Surrounded by the rococo detail of the vaudeville theater turned church and cultural center, Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott, and Dave Haywood kept the crowd on their feet for their entire set that covered both their catalog of smash singles (“Need You Now,” “Love Don’t Live Here Anymore”) and songs from their new album, HEART BREAK, even adding a horn section for their funky single “You Look Good.” Singer Charles Kelley admitted, “We don’t want people to feel like they know what to expect from us. We don’t want to know what to expect from us.”

With a new sense of history and possibilities, Lady Antebellum’s sixth studio album Heart Break had the group on a new mission — setting aside time to put themselves in new surroundings, and concentrate on writing and exploring musical endeavors with no distractions. With busbee in the producer’s chair, the trio had a hand in writing eleven songs on Heart Break, resulting in their most intimate and heartfelt work to date. Heart Break follows more than 18 million units, nine No. One hits, ACM and CMA “Vocal Group of the Year” trophies three years in a row, and countless other honors including Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards and Teen Choice Awards.

The United Palace originally opened in 1930 as the Loew’s 175th Street Theatre – the last of the five Wonder Theatres to be built in the New York metropolitan area. In 1969, United Palace was purchased and preserved by “prosperity preacher” Frederick J. Eikerenkoetter II, better known as Reverend Ike. Today, led by Reverend Ike’s son, Xavier Eikerenkoetter, United Palace has continued to evolve its offerings of universal spirituality and creative expression through the United Palace House of Inspiration (UPHI), United Palace of Cultural Arts (UPCA), and United Palace Theatre (UPT). As a house of creativity and transformation, United Palace is unlike any other and is dedicated to communities local and global in pursuit of setting the mind and spirit free.
