DARIUS RUCKER EXTENDS SOUTHERN STYLE TOUR INTO FALL
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (Friday, July 17, 2015) – Darius Rucker’s Southern Style Tour has been such a success this summer, the singer has decided to extend it into the fall.
After an astounding 400,000 fans turned out for the first leg, Rucker will now stretch his laidback, hit-filled tour into November. Coming off last weekend’s huge sellouts in Gilford, N.H., Boston, Mass., and Jones Beach, N.Y., the summer run has 15 shows left and is on track to exceed 700,000 tickets sold. Show dates and ticket information for the fall run will be announced next week. Breakout band A Thousand Horses will continue its run with Rucker and David Nail will join the tour in October.
Fans have been picking up on that vibe - from A Thousand Horses’ special blend of Southern rock and country to kick off the night to Rucker’s all-around entertainer abilities. Brett Eldredge has added a dress-up gloss to the affair this summer, something Nail also is known for.
Critics have also responded warmly to the tour. "Rucker proved to be one to defy expectations, if not challenge conventions,” the Asbury Park Press said of the concert. And The Record noted Rucker’s “once-in-a-lifetime voice — burly and richly textured — as well as a vocal delivery that’s warm and ingratiating."
