Charlie Daniels performs " The Devil Went Down To Georgia" at the 50th annual CMA Awards on Nov. 2, 2016, at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

The Charlie Daniels Band and The Marshall Tucker Band will perform at the Rialto Square Theatre on Sept. 11.

The bands are coming to Joliet on their “Fire on the Mountain” tour, the Rialto announced Monday.

The national tour will make 21 stops from April 23 to Nov. 7.

The Rialto performance will be at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 17. Prices are $49, $59 and $79.

“We have played more shows with the Marshall Tucker Band through the years than any other band and have worked together for over 40 years,” Charlie Daniels said in a news release from the Rialto. “We have so much history and so many memories, and the music is so compatible that when we get together, the audience, Charlie Daniels Band and Marshall Tucker Band have a big ole Southern-style good time.”

The tour title refers to The Marshall Tucker Band’s hit song “Fire on the Mountain” and the Charlie Daniels Band’s album of the same name.

“The idea of us touring again with the Charlie Daniels Band leads to all kinds of possibilities,” Doug Gray, lead singer with The Marshall Tucker Band, said in the release.

“It’s not just about the music, but also the friendships and the reunion with the fans who’ve been with us for many years. We’ll be playing all of our hit songs as well as material from an upcoming rereleased vinyl album.”

Some of the other stops on the tour will include Washington, D.C., on May 1; Evansville, Indiana, on May 3; Cincinnati, Ohio, on Aug. 14; St. Charles, Missouri, on Sept. 19; and Clearwater, Florida, on Nov. 7.

The Marshall Tucker Band was formed nearly 50 years ago in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

Besides “Fire on the Mountain,” the band’s hits have included “Heard It in a Love Song” and “Can’t You See,” which Country Music Television ranked as fourth in a list of Greatest Southern Rock Songs.

The Charlie Daniels Band signature song is “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.” Daniels has been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Musicians Hall of Fame.

Daniels and his manager, David Corlew, in 2014 founded the The Journey Home Project to help veterans returning from tours of duty.
