Nashville, Tenn (February 10, 2023) — Iconic southern rock and country group The Marshall Tucker Band (MTB) continues to blaze a trail over five decades since its inception. This week, the multi-platinum selling group announced its 2023 Infinite Road Tour.
More than 30 dates have been revealed for the first leg of the national tour. Concert stops include Jacksonville, FL (w/ Deep Purple); Derry, NH; Rutland, VT; Cincinnati, OH; Atlanta, GA (w/ ALABAMA); Baton Rouge, LA; Bushkill, PA (w/ Lynyrd Skynyrd) and Batavia, NY.
“We are looking forward to another big year for The Marshall Tucker Band,” says MTB lead singer Doug Gray. “It’s overwhelming to see so many fans coming out to our shows over 50 years after we started. Old friends bring their children and grandchildren, enabling growth for a new crop of fans. There is no end in sight. Infinity!”
In 1972, The Marshall Tucker Band came together in Spartanburg, SC to form a southern rock group. They knew they had the magic for something that could reach people well beyond the South Carolina state line. They had the sound, the look, and the camaraderie. But they didn’t have a name. One day while rehearsing in a Spartanburg warehouse, they found an old key ring inscribed with the name ‘Marshall Tucker.’ The band thought it was the name of the warehouse but as it turns out, it belonged to a blind piano tuner who resided in the area. It was this fated discovery that inspired the band’s moniker, and in that moment, The Marshall Tucker Band was born.
The band’s namesake, Marshall Tucker, passed away on January 20 at the age of 99.
“Marshall Tucker’s name will continue in our thoughts as we embark on our Infinite Road Tour,” notes Gray. “He never asked for fame but sometimes life unfolds in mysterious ways. Without his name, who knows where we would be today. We salute you into your infinite journey, Mr. Tucker!”
