Merle Haggard Tour resumes February 28, full schedule

The Hag is back on the road.

Country icon Merle Haggard kicks it up once again February 28 in Arizona.

Haggard is gearing up for the road once again after a brief illness had him sidelined for several shows. The dates which were postponed in January are being rescheduled for April and Merle’s previously booked tour with his longtime band, The Strangers, begins as planned on February 28 in Tucson, Arizona at the Fox Theatre.

“I’m feeling good and ready to get back on the bus. Thanks to all for their powerful prayers that led to my speedy recovery. I’m rehearsing with the band and looking forward to playin’ and singin’ again.”

Meanwhile, Merle's latest album--Working in Tennessee is available on Vanguard Records.
