Coun­try star Dar­ius Rucker is re­turn­ing to the friendly con­fines of po­prock band Hootie and the Blow­fish with a 44-city sum­mer tour that stops at Coral Sky Am­phithe­atre in West Palm Beach on June 8. The tour pairs the band with open­ers Bare­naked Ladies.

Tick­ets for the concert went on sale Fri­day at Live­Na­tion.com.

The Group Ther­apy Tour, which opens May 30 in Vir­ginia Beach and closes Sept. 13 in their home­town of Columbia, S.C., is the first for­mal tour in more than a decade by Hootie and the Blow­fish. The band re­port­edly is poised to re­lease its first stu­dio al­bum since 2005’s “Look­ing for Lucky.”

The sum­mer of 2019 will mark 25 years since Hootie and the Blow­fish re­leased the hook-laden break­out al­bum “Cracked Rear View,” a mul­ti­plat­inum col­lec­tion that in­cluded the Grammy Award-win­ning sin­gle “Let Her Cry.” Other hits on the al­bum in­cluded “Hold My Hand,” “Only Wanna Be With You,” “Time” and “Drown­ing.”

As a solo artist, Rucker has had 10 Top 10 sin­gles on the Bill­board coun­try chart in the past decade, in­clud­ing five at No. 1.
