Hootie & The Blowfish add UK, Ireland dates

Highly-anticipated reunion Group Therapy Tour hits overseas in October 2019

A month ahead of the highly-anticipated Group Therapy Tour launch, Hootie & the Blowfish have announced seven dates throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland this October to follow their 47 date U.S. and Canada run of shows.

The announcement follows a wave of excitement surrounding news of the band’s first full tour in over a decade with forthcoming music under a new record deal with Universal Music Group Nashville. They will celebrate the soon-to-begin tour as part of National Concert Week with a performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert this Wednesday, May 1st.

“I had the incredible opportunity to play the Royal Albert Hall in London last year, which was a bucket list night for me,” explains frontman Darius Rucker. “The fans there and everywhere else we played in Europe were so special. In talking with all of the guys about how special this year’s tour is going to be, we knew it wouldn’t be complete without a trip back across the pond to see our amazing fans there.”

A pre-sale for Hootie & the Blowfish email subscribers begins Wednesday, May 1st at 9 am, as does the O2 Priority pre-sale, with a C2C pre-sale to follow on Thursday, May 2nd at 9 am. Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, May 3rd at 9 am. All times are local.
