AceShowbiz - Hootie & the Blowfish, a popular rock band that was formed in 1986, announced last year that they would be reuniting after 11 years of hiatus. The band made the announcement during their appearance on "Today", confirming that all original members are participating. "It's gonna be a party. It's gonna be a great time," frontman Darius Rucker said on the morning show.
Dubbed the "Group Therapy Tour", the 44-city trek is to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the release of their debut album "Cracked Rear View", which went platinum 16 times and remains one of the best-selling albums of all times. The tour will kick off on May 30 in Virginia Beach and end on September 19 in their hometown of Columbia, South Carolina. The band has also signed a record deal with UMG Nashville and will release a single in the spring before unveiling an album in the summer.
