Two iconic bands are coming together for a historic road show next year, bringing their collective hits to American audiences across the nation. Today, legendary southern rock group The Marshall Tucker Band (MTB) and rock staple Jefferson Starship announced their joint Live on Cloud 9 Tour. The first leg of the tour, nine concerts (with more to come), have been announced with stops in California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington state.
The two bands have a history dating back to the 1970s, and MTB lead singer Doug Gray couldn’t be more thrilled about reuniting with Jefferson Starship. “We have a storied history with Jefferson Starship,” explains Gray. “We toured together many years ago and the timing feels right for us to reunite. We’re on Cloud 9!”
“We are really looking forward to touring with our buddies, The Marshall Tucker Band,” said Donny Baldwin of Jefferson Starship. “We toured back in the day, and it will be a great night of music from two iconic bands. See you there!”
The tour kicks-off February 29 at the Sycuan Casino Resort in El Cajon, CA. “We will be announcing many more dates very soon,” added Gray. “Keep an eye out for stops near your hometown!”
