Dubbed the “I’ll Have Another … World Tour ,” the outing features Strait No Chaser also celebrating 20 years since the group performed its first show at its Indiana University alma mater.

Released in October, Straight No Chaser’s The New Old Fashioned album includes versions of The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face,”  Hozier’s “Take Me To Church,” Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love,” and Radiohead’s “Creep.”  The LP also offers the group’s blending of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons with One Republic on “Beggin’/Countin’ Stars” as well as the Willie Nelson/Zac Brown Band mashup “On The Road Again/I Play The Road.”

The “I’ll Have Another … World Tour” follows “The New Old Fashioned Tour,” which takes Straight No Chaser to Australia in July before returning to the U.S. for shows on both coasts, including the July 22-23 appearances at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl with “Weird Al” Yankovic.
