    Seminal roots rock band Hootie and the Blowfish will reunite in 2019, with plans to tour the U.S. and release new music.

    The Darius Rucker-led outfit has mapped out an expansive 44-city summer tour, which kicks off May 30th in Virginia Beach and runs through mid-September. It marks the band’s first extended outing of the US in over a decade. What’s more, they’ll be joined on the road by Barenaked Ladies, who will open all of Hootie’s reunion shows.

    Tickets go on sale to the general public sale beginning Friday, December 7th via LiveNation. They’re also available for resale at StubHub.
