The band took a hiatus in 2008 so Rucker could pursue a solo career in country music, which led to a Grammy in 2013.

The Barenaked Ladies will open the show.

Hootie & the Blowfish, which also includes Mark Bryan, Dean Felber and Jim "Soni" Sonefeld, met at the University of SC in the late '80s, and began playing in local bars.

Hootie & the Blowfish will be coming to the Hersheypark Stadium on Friday, August 30, 2019 at 7:30 PM. In addition, tickets may be purchased at the State Fairgrounds Ticket Office during a limited-time opening from 10 a.m.to 1 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 7.

So it is with Hootie & the Blowfish.

WHBQ reported that the vast majority of patients were taken to two hospitals: Arkansas Children's Hospital and Saline Memorial. The injured children, who range in age from 9 to 12, were taken to hospitals in nearby Benton and Little Rock, police said.

"We were content playing clubs and small theaters, so playing to three, four and five times that size was incredible, and we're looking forward to that feeling again on this tour", Sonefeld echoes.

They'll be playing with special guest the Barenaked Ladies, which also had massive hits during the 90s. Tickets go on sale December 7 at 10 a.m.
