The couple held a show in Nashville at which they told the audience and the 22,000 fans streaming their video on Facebook, about the tour. “We’ve been looking to this for a long, long time,” McGraw said, and then added jokingly, “We got all y’all together just to tell y’all that, now we’re going home.”
The tour, called the Soul2Soul World Tour, will begin on April 7, 2017 in New Orleans and conclude in October 2017 in New York City. This is the third tour the duo has done together, and their first in 11 years. They also had a residency in Las Vegas in that time and shared the stage multiple times.
The show at which they announced, at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, was announce just the day before, and tickets sold out within minutes of going on sale. Fans assumed the impromptu show was in honor of the couple’s twentieth wedding anniversary, which is this Friday, but instead were met with a tour proposal.
Hill’s last studio album Fireflies was released in 2005 and last single came out in 2012, while McGraw has been more active. He’s released a new album every year and a half since 2013. Their original Soul2Soul tour came in 2000 when both were at the peaks of their careers.
