A month ahead of the highly-anticipated Group Therapy Tour launch, Hootie & the Blowfish have announced seven dates throughout the UK and Ireland this October (2019), to follow their 48-date US and Canada run of shows.

The UK shows kick off in Dublin and include a night at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, London.

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.

Frontman Darius Rucker explained: “I had the incredible opportunity to play the Royal Albert Hall in London last year, which was a bucket list night for me. 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 1 at 9am, as does the O2 Priority pre-sale, with a C2C pre-sale to follow on Thursday, May 2 at 9am. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, May 3 at 9am.
