The show is scheduled for Friday, April 7.

The New Orleans show is the first of the 2017 Soul2Soul II Tour. According to a report on TheBoot.com, the tour will hit 65 cities.

Next year marks the 10th anniversary of the Soul2Soul tour. Hill and McGraw came to the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi on July, 27, 2007. The Soul2Soul Tour was one of the most successful tours of recent years, according to a joint press release from McGraw and Hill.

“We have the best fans in the world, who have been with us through our entire journey and we are so excited to celebrate with them by going back on the road and showcasing an exciting new show,” said McGraw and Hill in the press release. “It’s always great when we get to work together and it’s been a while since we got to do that.”

The 2017 tour marks the first time Hill has been on the road in 10 years.
