In early 2022, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band The Hollies will embark on a very special 60th anniversary tour — the group’s first U.S. tour in more than two decades.

Announced on Friday, the tour will feature original Hollies members Tony Hicks (guitarist/singer/songwriter) and drummer Bobby Elliott, accompanied by lead singer Peter Howarth, bassist Ray Stiles, keyboardist Ian Parker and rhythm guitarist Steve Lauri.

“‘We felt like this is something no other band gets to do, celebrate six decades together, 60 years of this band and these songs means so much to us and so many others,” said Hicks.

More, via the news announcement:

Celebrated as one of the most influential bands from the 1960s British Invasion era alongside the likes of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, the Hollies have had over 20 worldwide hits, including number one singles in both the US and UK. They have spent an astonishing 263 weeks in the UK’s top 40 official singles chart, and have been performing continuously since their formation in 1962.

Their cultivated musicianship, coupled with the Hollies’ extensive back catalog of memorable rock ‘n’ roll tunes, has ensured the longevity of one of the greatest groups to emerge from the early 1960’s British Rock Revolution.

In 1995, they have bestowed the coveted Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Contribution To British Music, and in 2010 were inducted into the American Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame for their ‘impact on the evolution, development, and perpetuation of Rock and Roll’.

Here are the dates, which visit a few major cities across the country:

APRIL 2 – Mayo Performing Arts Center, Morristown, NJ
APRIL 4 – The Kennedy Center, Washington DC
APRIL 5 – Town Hall, New York, NY
APRIL 7 – The Athenaeum, Chicago, IL
APRIL 9 – The Saban, Los Angeles, CA
