ENID, Okla. — The Fire on the Mountain tour, featuring the Charlie Daniels and Marshall Tucker bands, will kickoff a national road tour with its first show in Enid this spring.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 17, 2020, for the 7 p.m. Thursday, April 23, show and can be purchased at StrideBankCenter.com or the Stride Bank Center Box Office, 301 S Independence, or by calling (855) 849-3643 (855.TIX.ENID). The Enid show is being presented by Triangle Insurance.
“The idea of us touring again with the CDB leads to all kinds of possibilities,” said Doug Gray, MTB lead singer. “It’s not just about the music but also the friendships and the reunion with the fans who’ve been with us for many years. We’ll be playing all of our hit songs as well as material from an upcoming re-released vinyl album.”
The tour title is a nod to The Marshall Tucker Band’s 1978 hit song “Fire on the Mountain,” as well as The Charlie Daniels Band’s 1974 platinum-selling album of the same name.
"We have played more shows with the MTB through the years than any other band and have worked together for over 40 years,” Daniels said. "We have so much history and so many memories, and the music is so compatible that when we get together, the audience, CDB and MTB have a big ole southern-style good time."
From Dove Award-winning gospel albums to southern rock anthems and CMA award-winning country hits, including his signature song, "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," Daniels has parlayed his passion for music into a multi-platinum career and a platform to support the military, underprivileged children and others in need. Throughout the course of his career, Daniels has received numerous accolades, including induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame and Musicians Hall of Fame and becoming a member of the Grand Ole Opry. He lends his time and talent to numerous charitable organizations, including The Journey Home Project, which he founded in 2014 with his manager, David Corlew, to help veterans of the United States Armed Forces.
The Marshall Tucker Band was founded in Spartanburg, S.C., nearly 50 years ago. The group has produced gold- and platinum-selling albums with hits including "Can't You See," "Heard It In A Love Song," "Fire On The Mountain," and "24 Hours At A Time," with many MTB songs featured in numerous television shows. Country Music Television (CMT) named the band's "Can't You See" the No. 4 greatest Southern rock song and it was the No. 1 southern rock song by ultimateclassicrock.com. The group's debut album, The Marshall Tucker Band, is Gibson Guitar's #5 greatest Southern rock album.
The tour will continue throughout 2020 with more than 20 live concert dates taking place by the year’s end at stops including Washington D.C.; Evansville, Ind.; Waterbury, Conn.; Morristown, N.J.; Westbury, N.Y.; Jackson, Tenn.; Cherokee, N.C.; Cincinnati, Ohio; Webster, Mass.; Deadwood, S.D.; and Clearwater, Fla.
