Great news from the Three Dog Night camp today!

The US Tour will go on (including Ribfest) and please see the entire Press Release below from their agency. “

Three Dog Night resumes US tour dates.

Three Dog Night has announced that they will be back on the road starting in November and will perform all of the dates currently confirmed on their tour schedule.

According to the band’s agency, WME, prior to his death, Mr. Wells had been concerned about cancelling shows and disappointing Three Dog Night’s fans, so he encouraged the band to get back out on the road.

The band took Wells’ recommendation and invited one of his favorite singers to join Three Dog Night when they resume the tour in November. “Our hearts are heavy,” said Danny Hutton, the band’s founder, “but we are going to honor Cory’s wishes and continue. He’ll always be with us in spirit.”

This three day charity fundraiser helps a variety of youth oriented causes.  Ribfest features the best BBQ ribbers in the world, national touring bands playing classic & southern rock & country hits on The Fran Haasch Law Group Stage. On Saturday and Sunday, fun activities for kids – in the Achieva Credit Union Family Fun Zone Hosted by Great Explorations Children’s Museum.
