Darius Rucker is set to perform at New York’s Apollo Theater on Oct. 19, the same day his upcoming fifth studio country album, When Was The Last Time, hits stores.
“I have so much respect and awe for the history and traditions this stage represents,” explains Rucker. “To perform at the Apollo as I prepare to release this album which means so much tome, feels like the perfect way to commemorate this album.”
Seeing their name on the Harlem concert hall’s iconic marquee has been a milestone for generations of African-American music legends, from Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington to Gladys Knight, James Brown and Lauryn Hill. Rucker joins their ranks as one of only a handful of country artists to ever grace the historic stage.
The milestone is one of many Rucker has attained in his career, including becoming a member of the Grand Ole Opry, earning both country and pop Grammy honors, and touring with sold-out shows at the O2 and Red Rocks.
Tickets to Darius Rucker at the Apollo Theater go on sale Friday, Sept. 29 at 10 a.m. ET.
