Darius Rucker Joins Brad Paisley On His H2O II Tour



Darius Rucker has rejoined Brad Paisley in his H2O II: Wetter and Wilder Tour that kicked off last week at London’s O2 Arena and is continuing through Ireland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark. This is Rucker’s first European tour since his days with Hootie and the Blowfish. Both he and Paisley are having a ball and receiving rave reviews according to The Times (London), Maverick Magazine, and several uploaded fan videos of the entertainers “rocking the stage” with Rolling Stones legend and surprise guest Ronnie Wood.
When Rucker finishes his stint in Europe and heads back to the states, he’ll begin his first headlining U.S. tour this fall. The country artist will please his fans with all their favorites off his platinum-selling albums and RIAA-Gold Certified hits as well as his five No. 1 singles and his latest, “I Got Nothin’,” which is currently climbing the Top 25. Joining Rucker on his stage for selected dates will be Rodney Atkins, Frankie Ballard, Thompson Square and Justin Moore.
“I haven’t headlined a tour since Hootie, so to say I’m excited is an understatement,” says Rucker. “It has been such an incredible experience to tour with Paisley and Rascal Flatts, and I’ve learned a lot being on the road with them. With this tour, I’m just excited to perform again for our fans, and I’m thrilled to have Rodney, Frankie, Justin and Thompson Square joining us.”
