Wynonna Judd is embarking on an exciting new solo tour.
In an exclusive announcement on Monday, PEOPLE revealed that the renowned country singer is set to hit the road once again on October 26th. The upcoming tour, named “Back to Wy,” is a theater tour that promises an abundance of performances from her initial two solo albums.
“I’ve been on the road since 19 and ’83. So you do the math — and touring is one of my absolute favorite things to do,” the singer tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Coming out of The Judds tribute tour, for me, it was time to get back to the intimacy again. It’s years celebrating not only being in country music for 40 years, but me as a soloist — I have so much to celebrate.”
Wynonna introduced her self-titled inaugural album in 1992. This period marked a crucial moment in her journey as she made the significant choice to embark on a solo career. This decision followed years of joint performances with her mother Naomi, who unfortunately passed away in April 2022, when they were known as The Judds.
Starting on October 26th, the 15-city tour will commence at the Murat Theatre at Old National Centre in Indianapolis, Indiana. The final show of the tour will take place on December 1st in Knoxville, Tennessee. Wynonna will be performing both of her albums in their entirety during the shows, concluding the evenings with timeless classics from The Judds catalogue.
