Marshall Tucker Band Announce 2015 Searchin’ for a Rainbow Tour


By Hannahlee Allers

The Marshall Tucker Band are prepping to kick off their 44th year on the road with the 2015 Searchin’ for a Rainbow Tour.

The tour begins on Jan. 23 in Greensboro, N.C., before criss-crossing the country to finish up in Steelville, Mo., in October. A list of dates can be found below, but more shows are still expected to be added.

“It’s looking like 2015 is shaping up to be our biggest tour schedule in years …” lead singer Doug Gray says. “We are so thankful that our fans have stuck with us for over four decades and continue to pack our shows. We’re still out there searchin’ for that rainbow.”

Last year, the group released ‘Live From Englishtown,’ a recording of their 1977 concert at Raceway Park in Englishtown, N.J., which includes a live version of ‘Searchin’ for a Rainbow,’ the title track of their 1975 album and the song for which this tour is named.

“I didn’t take out any of the bad parts, and I didn’t change or edit anything,” Gray says ’Live From Englishtown.’ “All we did was make it sound better. It was worth the time and worth the effort, because I put myself back on that stage in 1977, when you just walked out there, and you sang your heart out, and the audience was flipping out and loving it. It was a moment in time. It was overwhelming. That’s really all I can say about it.”

Plan to see them twice in Florida- one of the greatest bands in history: rock, Southern Rock, whatever the category!
