Augusta during the day is all about the Masters, but “Augusta At Night” might be the newest Masters tradition, with a concert.

Hootie and the Blowfish fan, Linda Van Antwerp, says, “oh my God we are so excited to see Hootie and the Blowfish.”

That’s right. The band is back together and starting their tour at SRP Park.

Lead singer of Hootie and the Blowfish, Darius Rucker, says, “we’ve always played and done shows and everything, and we don’t feel like we’ve broken up, so it’s like a different step and another thing we are doing together as a band. So, it feels great, it’s time and it’s right.”

With Hootie and the Blowfish headlining the show, Augusta At Night had an iconic opening act.

President of Endeavor Experiences, Mahmoud Youssef, says, “and opening for them is none other than nine time Grammy award winner, Sheryl Crow.” 

Fan, Elizabeth Lakomy, says, “It’s going to be awesome.”

It is one concert the fans will remember, and it won’t just be because of the photo simulation booth.

“We also have some sponsorship activations from Top Golf. They are doing these really cool simulations for golfers and non golfers alike, this huge screen,” says Youssef.

On one of the biggest weeks in Augusta, mixing a concert with golf is a hole-in-one.

“For us, just really being able to pick up on the excitement, the energy of the Masters, and for folks who want to continue on that excitement in the evening for different kind of entertainment, it’s great to be a part of that magic,” says Youssef.

The fans can also agree.

Fan, Bea Davis, says, “I will come every year.”

Endeavor Experiences says they hope to make Augusta At Night the newest Masters tradition.
