Hootie & the Blowfish to kick off 2019 tour with Virginia Beach stop

The band announced on Twitter they will hit the road with Barenaked Ladies next summer for the "Group Therapy Tour".

Hootie & the Blowfish will return to the grandstand on Thursday, Aug. 22, as part of their first tour in over a decade.

Recording artist Hootie and the Blow Fish performs during the New Year's Eve concert entitled "America's Party" on December 31, 2003 at the Venetian Resort-Hotel-Casino, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The band scored most of its more recognizable hits off 1994's "Cracked Rear View" album.

The group also plans to release a studio album for the first time in almost 15 years.

Tickets for the show go on sale Friday and will cost between $51 and $90. Their last official tour was in 2007.

Founded in the late '80s by frontman Darius Rucker, guitarist Mark Bryan, bassist Dean Felber and drummer Jim "Soni" Sonefeld as students at the University of South Carolina, Hootie & the Blowfish is known for mixing elements of rock, soul, folk and pop.

"When the four of us get back together, we fall into the same dynamic of the band that's always there", Rucker said. We're just older now.
