Hootie & The Blowfish Add Second Show in Columbia Due to Overwhelming Demand


After announcing that they will be reuniting for their Group Therapy Tour and a new album, the first in over 10 years, Hootie & the Blowfish have another announcement to make.

Due to overwhelming demand and the show in Columbia, S.C. already selling out, the band has added second show at Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, South Caroline on Thursday, Sept. 12.

“It means the world that our fans have reacted so positively this week,” said guitarist Mark Bryan, “especially in a city as important to us as Columbia, where we get to play for the first time in almost 20 years.”

“We always felt there would be another tour, and it was just about timing. We’re not doing this for us. We’re doing it for those people who used to plan their vacations around the Hootie & the Blowfish tour,” shares Darius Rucker. “And we can’t wait to see them again.”

The 44-date trek will kick off on May 30 in Virginia Beach, Va., taking the group through Los Angeles, Cleveland, Detroit, Nashville, and Columbia, S.C. Joining the fabulous foursome, who garnered fame with their debut album Cracked Rearview, will be the Barenaked Ladies.

Tickets for the second show go on sale to the general public Friday, Dec. 14 here.
