Darius Rucker, the multi-platinum artist, will enjoy “Beers and Sunshine” with fans this summer as he prepares to hit the road again.
Rucker announced early Monday morning (April 18) that he would be embarking on a 14-date tour with several Nashville newcomers in June.
Tyler Booth, Larry Fleet, Caylee Hammack, Ryan Hurd, Jameson Rodgers, Elvie Shane, Tenille Townes, and Daves Highway were among the rising stars enlisted by the hitmaker to perform in cities across the United States and Canada. The opening acts’ dates are officially divided, making each show unique and different.
The frontman of Hootie & the Blowfish will begin his headlining tour on June 23 in Cleveland, Ohio, and will conclude on September 10 in Camdenton, Missouri, with Tyler Booth. Along with his must-see show, Rucker will appear at a number of fan-favorite festivals, fairs, and special events.
The three-time GRAMMY winner will host his 13th annual “Darius and Friends” benefit concert at Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium on Monday, June 6. To date, the affair has raised more than $2.5 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“I can’t wait to see all of our St. Jude friends again at the Ryman,” Rucker previously stated in a statement. “This show is always a highlight of the year for me because it not only raises funds for a very important cause, but it also allows me to bring together some of my best friends in Nashville for an incredible night of music.”
The upcoming performance will serve as the unofficial start of CMA Fest week in Music City. Rucker will be among the many A-listers performing at Nissan Stadium on June 9 at the CMA Fest.
Before heading to the Midwest to headline, the singer-songwriter will perform at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville as part of the Brooks & Dunn Reboot Tour 2022.
Tickets for several dates are now on sale, with the majority of newly announced dates going on sale to the general public this Friday, April 22, at 10 a.m. local time via DariusRucker.com.
