Country music legends Brooks & Dunn made the surprise announcement to fans on Tuesday that they are hitting the road for their first tour in a decade. The group announced the news of its Reboot 2020 Tour on Twitter. The shows will start on May 15 in St. Louis, Missouri, and conclude on September 19 in Chicago, Illinois.
The duo had a farewell tour in 2010 called The Last Rodeo Tour after they announced they were breaking up. Now they're ready to "ride again."
"So much for 'We quit,' huh?” Dunn said in a statement. "That horse that we were afraid of riding into the ground apparently didn't share our sentiment…he gotta fire in his belly raring to go another round or two. I like the ring of it...'Brooks & Dunn ride again!’”
“The memories of playing live are what have kept the fire burning for us,” Brooks said. “Performers who have had the kind of nights like we’ve had with our fans, can never really let that go. Live is where we’re most at home, and it's gonna feel good to be back in the saddle, let’s rodeo! We’ll see y'all out there on the trail."
