Hootie & the Blowfish reunite for new album, tour including Chicago stop”

Hootie & The Blowfish are returning to full-time touring for the first time in a decade, and the band announced a Cincinnati tour date. We're doing it for those people who used to plan their vacations around the Hootie & the Blowfish tour.

The album will be the first in over 15 years and made possible through a new record label deal with Universal Music Group Nashville. The band announced Monday they are releasing a new album and will be going on a 44-city tour this spring.

The tour is dubbed the Group Therapy Tour.

They will also feature fellow 90s stars Barenaked Ladies as special guests when the tour kicks off on May 30 in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Tickets for the show go on sale Friday and will cost between $51 and $90.

Lead singer Darius Rucker is taking a break from his successful country music career to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Hootie & the Blowfish's smash debut album, "Cracked Rear View". One of the best-selling albums of the '90s, the 1994 album spawned hits like "Hold My Hand", "Let Her Cry", and "Only Wanna Be With You".

The band hails from Columbia, South Carolina.
