Jack O’Neill and Cary Pierce, the “Jack O” and “Pierce” who make up the seminal duo Jackopierce, have announced their plans for a 25th Anniversary Tour in support of their April 29th release of Live 25. The U.S. tour, with dates being added, will begin on May 22nd in Minneapolis, MN and will be making stops in Chicago, Austin, New York City, Boston, and Washington, DC, among other major cities. The duo, whose long standing career has garnered them a loyal following of millions of fans across the country and critical praise, will perform songs that can also be heard on Live 25 including fan favorites like “Vineyard,” “Three Of Us In A Boat,” “I Gotta Know,” “Promise of Summer,” as well as their brand new studio single “This Is Our Time.”

Jackopierce will release Live 25 on April 29th on Be Music & Entertainment, a 17-track album that was recorded during the duo’s 25th anniversary show for a crowd of 2,100 people at the Winspear Opera House in September. Live 25 captures the excitement and sounds of a night that will go down in the record books for a duo that have not only released 8 studio albums but have continued to build an impressive fan base with their soul-pleasing acoustic rock sound and spot on harmonies. Fans can check out a behind the scenes look at the making of Live at 25 here:
Jackopierce formed in 1988 playing shows around their hometown of Dallas, Texas. The duo steadily made a name for themselves, in particular with the track “Vineyard,” which became a signature track for the band. Jackopierce has released eight studio albums (two for major label A&M), toured three continents, nine countries, and 44 states (often for sold-out crowds), and along the way accumulated millions of loyal fans. Over the years they have shared the stage with artists such as Dave Matthews Band, Counting Crows, The Wallflowers, Sheryl Crow, Jewel, Alanis Morissette, among others. After a five-year breakup in 1997 the duo reconvened in 2002 as Jackopierce for a sold-out run of shows in TX. Jack O'Neill and Cary Pierce have a renewed creative vigor, mutual respect, and deep gratitude for their Jackopierce heritage and continue to make music that fans love and newcomers continue to discover.
