The Dixie Dregs are back.

Four decades after calling it quits, the original Dixie Dregs lineup of Steve Morse (guitar), Andy West (bass), Allen Sloan (violin), Steve Davidowski (keyboards) and Rod Morgenstein (drums) has reunited and will hit the road together in February for a nationwide tour. The announcement came Thursday.

The band’s “Dawn of The Dregs” tour currently consists of 25 dates and is expected to see more dates added over time. the tour is currently scheduled to launch Feb. 28 in Clearwater, Fla and run through April 25 in Dallas, TX with performances in Atlanta, Chicago, Phoenix and a number of other major American cities. Tickets are available now here.

West said in a recent interview that the band’s decision to reunite and tour together again came from requests by the band’s more seasoned fans and its newer audiences alike.

“This tour is the result of overwhelming requests we’ve received from a loyal audience of diehard “Dregheads,” and new fans who have never seen us perform live, but discovered the band for the first time through Steve’s membership in Deep Purple, or Rod as the drummer for Winger,” West said. “We can’t wait to play for them all.”
