– Wynonna, announced today she will launch a theatre tour – Back to Wy - in October.
The tour will feature the songs off Wynonna's first two solo albums – "Wynonna" (1992) and "Tell Me Why" (1993), performed track by track, front to back, followed by a finale of her other hits along with The Judds classics. The 15-city tour kicks off on Oct. 26 at Murat Theatre at Old National Centre in Indianapolis, Ind. making stops including San Antonio, Dallas, Louisville and more before wrapping up in Knoxville, Tenn. at Tennessee Theatre on Dec. 1.
"Getting to share this tour with the fans who have been with me for 40 years, means the world to me. Deep diving into my first two solo albums, "Wynonna" and "Tell Me Why," track by track, will be a trip down memory lane. As I sit and listen to these two records, I'm flooded with the memories that surrounded that time in my life. The fans held me up and supported me through that season of change in 1992, and I now see "herstory" repeating itself. This music healed me then and is healing me now. The circle of life continue," Judd said.
