A Judd Reunion

12/01/1998 at 12:00 AM EST

The Judds are coming back. The mother-and-daughter country music duo announced Wednesday that they will embark on a concert tour in 2000, their first extensive road trip in nine years. "We're red, we're raucous and we're ready to roll," said a raven-haired Naomi Judd, 53, who quit the popular act after contracting hepatitis C in 1991. Naomi said she has tested free of the virus for two years. "We are going out on tour because I'm not dead, and she's not pregnant," she joked, referring to her daughter Wynonna, who has two children. (Wynonna's sister Ashley, meanwhile, has launched a successful Hollywood acting career.) The tour will begin New Year's Eve in Phoenix. About 20 dates have been booked so far, beginning Feb. 4 in Denver and including stops in Las Vegas, Atlanta, Detroit, Houston and Chicago.
