The Mavs slate 25th anniversary tour

Wednesday, January 22, 2014 – The Mavericks will embark on the 25 Live Tour in late February, continuing through June.

"While the band was formed in the summer of 1989, our first show wasn't until months later ... making 2014 our 25th year together, and we're very excited to get back out on the road," said guitarist Robert Reynolds.
