Ever been to a concert and left disappointed because you didn’t hear your favorite song? Sugarland is going to make sure that doesn’t happen by leaving their next tour up to the audience. The duo’s ‘In the Hands of Fans Tour’ which will rely solely on fans to choose what songs they will perform in each city. If Sugarland has recorded it or performed it, then the song is eligible for the set list.

“This year’s tour is based around the concept of putting the show into the hands of the fans,” Jennifer Nettles said. “THEY will make the requests that will help form the set list and guide the show. Through texts, handwritten signs, the Internet, Twitter, Facebook, phone calls made during the show and selections directly from the stage, the fans will become the conductors as well as the audience. If it’s on one of our records or if we’ve played it on a stage it is fair game.”
