Darius Rucker Plots 2023 Starting Fires Tour
Darius Rucker will spend his summer on the road. On Monday, the star announced his 2023 Starting Fires Tour, a trek which will take him across the United States and Canada, with 21 dates scheduled.
Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors will serve as direct support, with Drew Green popping in on select dates.
Rucker has toured consistently over the last year on his theater tour and his summer tour in 2022. He'll kick things off in 2023 on June 15 in Roanoke, Va., at the Elmwood Park Amphitheater, then hopscotch across the continent before wrapping things up in Nashville, Tenn., at Ascend Amphitheater on Oct. 14.
"Let’s do it!! Looking forward to being back on the road with @drewholcombmusic and @drewgreen this year," Rucker shares on social media.
Fans are hoping to get a new project from the "Beers and Sunshine" singer before he hits the road. Rucker has been talking about his seventh solo album for over a year — the collection of songs is titled Carolyn's Boy in honor of his late mother and features songs like "Same Beer Different Problem" and "Ol' Church Hymn" featuring Chapel Hart, which he has already shared.
The South Carolina native will also be returning to his hometown for his Riverfront Revival Music Festival Oct. 7-8. The event — curated by Rucker — is expected to announce a lineup in the coming weeks.
