Hootie and the Blowfish will stop at Xfinity Center in Mansfield on August 3.

After a lengthy hiatus, Hootie & the Blowfish will hit the road for their first full-scale tour in more than a decade, coinciding with the release of their first studio album in almost 15 years. We're doing it for those people who used to plan their vacations around the Hootie & the Blowfish tour.

They'll be playing with special guest the Barenaked Ladies, which also had massive hits during the 90s. Tickets for the 44-show North American tour go on sale to the general public on Friday with pre-sale tickets starting on Monday.

The tour, which is called the Group Therapy Tour, will stop by Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre in Englewood on July 11. One of the best-selling albums of the '90s, the 1994 album spawned hits like "Hold My Hand", "Let Her Cry", and "Only Wanna Be With You".

The band took a hiatus in 2008 so Rucker could pursue a solo career in country music, which led to a Grammy in 2013.

The band hails from Columbia, South Carolina. Tickets will go on sale at the venue's website and Ticketmaster 10 a.m. December 7.
