The U.S. leg begins July 17 in Irvine, Calif., and ends Sept. 19 in Atlanta, Ga. Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday.

The tour will feature bluegrass bands The Steep Canyon Rangers and Della Mae, jazz pianist Jeff Babko, singer Paul Shaffer and musician Alison Brown on select dates.

"Marty and I love touring, especially while we can still tolerate each other," Martin, 74, said.

"There are few people that I truly admire," Short, 69, added. "And Steve Martin is very close to being one of them."

Martin and Short will perform a U.K. leg of the tour in March. The pair previously toured together on their An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life and A Very Stupid Conversation tours.
