The Marshall Tucker Band will celebrate five decades since its inception with a 50th Anniversary tour in 2022. The Nov. 16 announcement revealed the initial 35 concert dates, many of which feature Dave Mason as the opening act. The tour begins on Jan. 12; tickets go on sale on Nov. 19 at 11 a.m. at Ticketmaster.

“Five decades of the Marshall Tucker Band … sometimes it’s still hard to understand,” says MTB lead singer and founding member Doug Gray. “We are just regular people. The fans have given us so many special moments over these 50 years. I’m so proud of our band.”

From the announcement: In 1972, original members Toy Caldwell, Tommy Caldwell, Gray, Jerry Eubanks, George McCorkle and Paul Riddle came together in Spartanburg, S.C.. They knew they had the magic for something that could reach people well beyond the South Carolina state line. They had the sound, the look, and the camaraderie. Problem was, they didn’t have a name. One day while rehearsing in a local warehouse, they came across a key ring with the inscription, Marshall Tucker. It belonged to a blind piano tuner who resided in Spartanburg. It was this discovery that inspired the band’s moniker, and in that moment, the Marshall Tucker Band was born.

Thanks to hits like “Can’t You See,” “Heard It in a Love Song,” “Fire on the Mountain,” and “24 Hours At a Time,” the 5x Gold, 3x Platinum-selling Southern Rock group has sold millions of albums worldwide.

“I’m really looking forward to joining the 50th anniversary celebration of this extraordinary band,” says Mason. “I’ve been waiting to get back on the road, and this is quite the opportunity to bring great music to everybody, everywhere.”

“Our special songs, guided by the lyrics of Toy Caldwell, have given us a deep emotional connection with our fans and friends,” adds Gray.

A second leg of the tour will be announced in the coming weeks.
