A surprise concert with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill in Nashville Tuesday night yielded an even bigger revelation – the country couple will return to the road in 2017 for a third round of their “Soul2Soul” joint concert.
McGraw and Hill will visit 65 cities during the seven-month outing, which launches April 7 in New Orleans and swings through Atlanta’s Philips Arena a few weeks later at 7:30 p.m. April 22.
Ticket pre-sales begin on Oct. 7 and tickets for the general public will become available starting Oct. 14.
The “Soul2Soul” tour celebrates the 10th anniversary of the McGraw/Hill “Soul2Soul II” run, which was the highest-grossing multi-year country music tour of all time. The 2017 trek also marks the first time Hill has toured since 2007.
Both singers will also join NBC’s “The Voice” as key advisers – the first time a duo has been tapped for the assignment.
Here is a rundown of the couple’s 2017 tour dates.
