Hootie and the Blowfish coming to eastern Iowa with Barenaked Ladies

06 December 2018

Lead singer Darius Rucker told the TODAY Show Monday morning they are writing songs for a new album.

After a lengthy hiatus, Hootie & the Blowfish will hit the road for their first full-scale tour in more than a decade, coinciding with the release of their first studio album in almost 15 years.

The group will be touring with the Barenaked Ladies.

Mark Bryan, Dean Felber, Darius Rucker and Jim "Soni" Sonefeld first formed Hootie years ago when they were students at the University of SC.

The band - known for their string of hits from 1994's Cracked Rear View - will embark on a 44 city romp to coincide with the release of a new studio album in 2019.

Hootie and the Blowfish want to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their album "Cracked Rear View" with their fans.

"We were content playing clubs and small theaters, so playing to three, four and five times that size was incredible, and we're looking forward to that feeling again on this tour", Sonefeld echoes. "We've been a band for pretty much 30 years now". Fans are permitted on the Hersheypark Entertainment Complex property beginning at 7 a.m. on Friday, December 7.
