Hootie & The Blowfish Announce 44-date Tour

One of the 90's biggest rock bands is coming to Cincinnati on July 20, 2019.

(New York, NY)  --  Darius Rucker is returning to his roots for a 44-date headlining tour. 

Hootie & the Blowfish announced the new trek yesterday on the Today show. 

It's dubbed the Group Therapy Tour, and it kicks off on May 30th in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

"When we play 'Hold My Hand' or we play 'Let Her Cry' or we play 'Only Want to Be with You,' to hear that crowd?" Rucker says. "I'll play it every day. To still be doing that for 30 years? It's all gravy. I want to be there and do it just because we can." 

Tickets go on sale this Friday.
