Courtesy Live NationIn 2019, Cracked Rear View, the 21-times-platinum debut album by Hootie & the Blowfish, will turn 25.  And in honor of the occasion, Hootie is hitting the road.

The band, led by Darius Rucker — now a solo country music superstar — will launch its Group Therapy Tour on May 30 in Virginia Beach, Viriginia.  Joining them for the trek will be another hitmaking band from the ’90s: Barenaked Ladies.

The tour currently is scheduled to wrap up in Columbia, South Carolina, on September 13. Tickets for the tour go on sale to the general public on Friday.

And there’s even better news: Hootie & the Blowfish have signed a new record deal and plan to release a new album in 2019.

By the way, this isn’t exactly a “reunion” tour for Hootie: They continue to play together here and there, including an annual charity show.  This past summer, they joined country superstar Jason Aldean and a few other country acts for one-off concert at Georgia’s SunTrust Park.
