NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Hootie and the Blowfish performed a lively take on their classic hit “Hold My Hand” on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert Wednesday night.
“Hold My Hand” which dates back to the band’s formative years, was the debut track off of the group’s first studio album Cracked Rear View, which they released in 1994. The track helped pave the way for the band’s early success, peaking at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and helping Hootie & The Blowfish sell more than 21 million copies of the album.
Fronted by Darius Rucker, Hootie and the Blowfish are revving up to hit the road for a major North American tour. The Group Therapy Tour kicks off on May 30th in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and runs through Sept. 12 & 13th when it concludes with a pair of shows in Columbia, South Carolina.
Then, in October, Hootie & The Blowfish head across the Atlantic for a series of dates in the UK and Ireland, starting on Oct. 4th at 3Arena in Dublin and wrapping on on Oct 16th at O2 Academy in Birmingham.
The Group Therapy tour is the first full outing for Hootie & The Blowfish in more than a decade and follows a new record deal with Universal Music Group Nashville that promises new material from the band.
Barenaked Ladies are lined up to provide support throughout the tour.
