COLUMBIA, S.C. — Hootie & the Blowfish has added a third Columbia show to the upcoming Group Therapy Tour due to popular demand.
The third show is set for Wednesday, Sept. 11 at Colonial Life Arena. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, March 1 at 10 a.m., with pre-sale tickets available on February 25.
“It means the world that our fans have reacted so positively,” 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.”
The Columbia Band surprised fans in December by announcing that, for the first time in over a decade, they would be releasing new music and embarking on the Live Nation-produced Group Therapy Tour in 2019.
The Columbia homecoming finale on Friday, Sept. 13 sold out during the pre-sale and initial few moments when tickets went on sale to the general public, prompting the band to nearly immediately add a second Colonial Life Arena show on Thursday, Sept. 12.
“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 lead singer Darius Rucker. “And we can’t wait to see them again.”
Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, March 1 at 10 a.m.
Citi cardmembers will be able to purchase pre-sale tickets for the added show beginning Monday, Feb. 25, at 10 a.m. until Thursday, Feb. 28 at 10 p.m. through Citi's Private Pass program. For complete pre-sale details visit www.citiprivatepass.com.
