Country music legend Wynonna Judd has added a number of dates to her Back to Wy Tour, including an Oct. 5 show at Arizona Financial Theatre in downtown Phoenix.

The tour features Judd performing in full her first two solo albums, "Wynonna" (1992) and "Tell Me Why" (1993), presented in a track-by-track journey from start to finish. The show also features an intimate acoustic set.

"This tour isn't just about the songs," Judd said in the announcement of the new concert dates. "It's about our shared experiences, the memories we create together in each city, each venue, each moment. It's about returning to the roots of where it all began for me as a solo artist and celebrating the nostalgic feeling of what we were doing when these 2 albums entered our lives … whether that was 1992 or 2022."

Tickets to the newly announced dates will be available starting with a Wynonna Judd Fan Club Presale beginning Tuesday. Additional presales will run throughout the week ahead of the general on-sale beginning at 10 a.m. on Friday, on the Wynonna Judd website.
