Husband and wife country stars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are putting the finishing touches on a reprise of their Soul II Soul tour, sources tell Billboard.com. The co-headlining arena tour will begin April 21 and will run through Labor Day, with a total of about 70 dates in the works.
Venues will be configured in-the-round; the production will be an “evening with” format, with no supporting acts booked. McGraw and Hill last toured together in 2000, grossing nearly $50 million and drawing close to 950,000 people to 63 shows reported to Billboard Boxscore, 60 of which were sell-outs.
McGraw has not released a new studio album since 2004’s “Live Like You Were Dying.” But he snared a Grammy nomination with Hill for best country collaboration with vocals for “Like We Never Loved at All,” from Hill’s 2005 effort, “Fireflies.”
Hill also earned a best country album Grammy nod for that set, as well as a best female country vocal performance nomination for the single “Mississippi Girl.”
