The tour, the first for Hootie & The Blowfish since 2019, promises to be a mostly outdoor summer extravaganza custom made for Gen X and beyond, with some of the top bands of the ‘90s bringing their greatest hits to amphitheaters kicking off May 30 at Dos Equis Pavilion in Dallas and winding cross country through Sept. 28 at iTHINK Financial Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida.

In between, the caravan will make stadium stops June 21 at Fenway Park in Boston, June 28 at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pennsylvania, and arena visits July 13 at Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona; July 16 at Honda Center in Anaheim, California; July 27 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville; Aug. 29 at Colonia Life Arena in Colombia, South Carolina; Sept. 12 at Thompson-Boling Arena at Food City Center in Knoxville, Tennessee; and Sept. 27 at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.

Hootie & The Blowfish, comprised of Mark Bryan, Dean Felber, Darius Rucker and Jim “Soni” Sonefeld, formed the band during their time as students together at the University of South Carolina. Starting with their double-Diamond certified debut album, Cracked Rear View,the band has sold more than 25 million albums.

Represented by CAA’s Darin Murphy and managed by Maverick’s Clarence Spaulding, the band has reported more than 1.2 million tickets sold as reported to Pollstar, and grossed more than $56 million dating back to 1999.

“Basically overnight, our lives changed when Cracked Rear View did what it did – and yet as we quickly moved from vans and college bars to tour busses and arenas, not much else changed with how we approached making music and sharing it with our fans,” Mark Bryan says.  “Edwin McCain told someone at the time that touring with us felt like summer camp with trucks… and that’s exactly how we want next year to feel, too. We can’t wait for you to join us!”

In addition to playing limited engagements, including their annual Monday After the Masters charity event which raises funds to support educational programs and the South Carolina junior golf program.
