Hot Tuna always seem to be most at home on the concert trail. So it's no surprise that they're kicking off the new year with a string of new dates. The veteran band just announced a 30-show U.S. tour that launches on Jan. 2 in Northampton, Mass.

The group typically showcases two distinct sides onstage: the electric and the acoustic. This new tour will with focus on the band's acoustic work. Some of the dates will feature Leon Russell sharing the bill, while others will include longtime associate David Lindley. You can see a complete list of concerts below.

Springing from the minds of two Jefferson Airplane members -- and centered around guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Casady's mutual love of blues, jazz, bluegrass and folk music -- Hot Tuna came to life during impromptu jam sessions held in hotel rooms while they were on tour with the band. Their "side project" will celebrate its 45th anniversary in 2014.
