Alabama have announced their 40th anny Back to the Bowery tour, the trek's name a nod to the dive bar where they played their first gig in 1973.
The jaunt begins with two dates (April 5-6) in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and continues through October 12 with a show in Thackerville, Oklahoma.
"I'm so excited to celebrate 40 years since our first show at the Bowery," lead vocalist Randy Owen said in a statement.
"We still love one another, have played music together all these years and are blessed to still be around. Most importantly, we are ever grateful for the fans, many having been with us since we used to play for tips, so to be able to go back out and play for them will make this a very special year."
