Darius Rucker Announces UK Tour

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A trip oversees is overdue for Darius Rucker who has announced a UK tour this fall.

Rucker is no stranger to the devoted country faithful in London, Germany
and Amsterdam. Since signing with Capitol Records Nashville and
releasing his first country album Learn to Live in 2008, the
three-time GRAMMY winner has made multiple trips overseas including
Country to County (C2C) festival at the O2 in London in 2013 where he
declared he “couldn’t wait to get back” before making good on that
promise and returning again in 2017 to rave reviews.

One publication wrote, “…will go down in history as one of the
Festival’s greatest performances” and another opined Rucker “was the
highlight…and no one could top his performance.”

The Platinum artist who is a member of the esteemed Grand Ole Opry has
invested in touring overseas. In 2017, Rucker returned to the C2C stage
and performed shows in countries such as in Germany, Switzerland and the
Netherlands.

Rucker has fearlessly followed his own musical muse while cultivating a
huge following of people drawn to his uniquely seductive delivery. He
makes it seem effortless, until you step back and take in the magnitude
of the music and the far reaching, lasting impact of songs that have
become part of popular culture from his days fronting Hootie & the
Blowfish to a country solo career that has netted him eight No. 1
records.

His latest studio release on Capitol Records Nashville, When Was The Last Time,
was launched with two sold-out shows that speak to the heart of who he
is as an artist – making history at the famed Apollo Theater and a
stadium-sized hometown, throw down in Charleston, S.C. at Volvo Stadium.
