IT was probably 20 or more years ago in Nashville when I first met these guys--so sweet and kind--and funny! Restless Heart has announced the first round of live concert dates for its year-long 35th Anniversary Tour. Over a dozen of performances have been announced in this initial run with stops in Texas, Florida, Tennessee, Georgia, and Kentucky.
“35 years… far more than we could have ever imagined or hoped for, and still an absolute privilege to share the stage with all of our original members,” says Restless Heart’s Dave Innis. “That is something to be grateful for and it’s in thanks to all our amazing fans, old and new, who have become friends and family to us throughout the years.”
Larry Stewart, the band’s lead singer, adds, “I’m so honored to hit the stage with my original bandmates every night, and I believe we’re as good as we’ve ever been. To see our fans continue to support us and to see so many new fans attend our shows, it’s humbling. Thank you to our RH family for remaining loyal fans!”
John Dittrich, Greg Jennings, Paul Gregg, Stewart, and Innis—the five original men who make up Restless Heart—have enjoyed one of the most successful group careers in country music history, placing six consecutive No. 1 hits and four Gold-certified albums.
Additional dates will be announced via restlessheartband.com in the coming weeks.
