Darius Rucker has unveiled a 2024 UK and Ireland tour, with the ‘Beers and Sunshine’ hitmaker lining up dates in London, Manchester, Newcastle, Leeds, Dublin, Belfast and more.

Rucker will also take the stage at the Bristol Beacon, Birmingham's O2 Academy and Glasgow's O2 Academy, with the Starting Fires UK & Ireland tour due to start on 27 April 2024 in Manchester.

Darius Rucker has been performing all over the States this past year as part of his Starting Fires tour, and ever since he unveiled the first run of shows, his fans across The Pond had been hoping he'd add international dates once the US leg had been wrapped up.

Thankfully, he's now confirmed he'll be bringing his popular Starting Fires tour to a slew of cities across the UK and Ireland, with tickets due to go on-sale from Friday, September 15 at 10am.

Rucker delivered a stellar headlining set as part of C2C Festival 2022, during which the chart-topping songsmith added an array of new fans to his expansive army of avid listeners.

Those lucky enough to secure a spot at one of Darius Rucker's 2024 shows will be looking forward to hearing hits such as ‘Wagon Wheel’, ‘Come Back Song’ and ‘For the First Time’.

The North Carolina native tends to include a blend of solo cuts, tracks by his previous band, Hootie and the Blowfish, and stellar covers, such as Blackstreet's ‘No Diggity’.

Rucker is currently gearing up to release a brand new album inspired by his mother, Carolyn's Boy, on October 6 2023, and UK and Ireland ticket-holders will undoubtedly be hoping he introduces a few of these newer tracks into his 2024 setlist.
