TULSA, Okla. — It's official! After the internet was buzzing with speculation about a comeback in the works, Turnpike Troubadours announces they have an upcoming show next spring.

Turnpike Troubadours started in Stillwater and later relocated to Tahlequah in 2007. For over a decade, they released five studio albums and went on multiple tours, gaining local and national attention. The band's last studio album A Long Way From Your Heart earned the No. 1 spot on the folk and indie charts and the No. 3 spot on the country charts.

However, trouble hit the band in 2019 and they announced an indefinite hiatus. In the months leading up to the announcement, Turnpike Troubadours canceled multiple tour dates.

There was speculation a large reason for the hiatus was the frontman's Evan Felker's personal issues, such as addiction, filing for divorce from his wife, and dating rumors with Miranda Lambert. For two years, the band spent time apart with minimal news coming from any of the members, but on Nov. 24, fans found a surprise on the band's website. The main homepage is replaced entirely with their logo and the words "Coming Soon" underneath.

The band posted on Twitter on Nov. 30 confirming a comeback is now happening. They are playing a show at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre with Shovels & Rope and Reckless Kelly on May 14, 2022.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, Dec. 3 at 11 a.m. local time on the venue's website.
