Darius Rucker has been teasing new music, posting photos from the studio where he is recording his first solo album since 2017’s When Was The Last Time. With new music on the horizon, fans knew the touring news wasn’t far behind.

This morning (11/1) Darius announced that he will be visiting iconic venues across the country for intimate theater performances.

Rucker says, “It’s been a dream of mine for a while to bring our show to these beautiful theaters. Some of my favorite venue memories over the years are at places like the Apollo in New York or the Royal Albert Hall in London, as it’s just a different experience when you’re that close. With Hootie, we went straight from playing dive bars to arenas, so there are still a lot of theatres I’ve never had the opportunity to play. I’ll just say that this tour will have a lot of firsts, even for me.”

Beginning Thursday, February 17 in Philadelphia, “Darius Rucker Live” produced by Live Nation visits classic theaters in 12 cities including Boston, New York, Chicago, and more with support from Caylee Hammack on all dates.

Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning this Friday, November 5, at 10 a.m. CT via Ticketmaster.
