Will Hootie and the Blowfish Get Back Together? Michigan is Hoping Yes!
It was 1994 when a band named Hootie and the Blowfish became all the rage on the college rock music scene. The group, together since their college days in the 80s, released an album "Cracked Rear Window" and it blew up. It went crazy and helped them win a Grammy award for best new artist of 1995!
Quite the deal since that album was their first studio album. It did contain "Hold My Hand" and "I Only Want to Be With You." Those were two monster hits!
All was good for awhile, but they decided to take a break in 2008 as Darius Rucker wanted to focus on country music.
There were other reasons, of course, but flash forward to today and Hootie and the Blowfish are back, again!
They did reunite in 2019 and toured with Barenaked Ladies for just a bit. However, they have decided to give it a go again in 2024 with their new tour, "Summer Camp with Trucks!"
Hootie and the Blowfish fans couldn't be more excited about the band getting back together again, thirty years after the release of 1994's double-diamond-certified debut album "Cracked Rear View" -- one of the top 10 best-selling albums in music history.
But the best news of all is that Hootie and the Blowfish are coming to Michigan on their tour. They will stop in cities throughout the U.S. and Canada, kicking off on May 30, 2025, in Dallas and concluding on Sept. 28 in West Palm Beach, Florida, but not before Pine Knob Music Theatre in Detroit on June 6, 2024 at 7:00 p.m.
