Matchbox Twenty and Counting Crows are bringing A Brief History of Everything Tour 2017 to the Walmart AMP as part of the 2017 Cox Concert Series. “No matter what I will ever do, nothing feels like home as much as playing these songs with these guys, and it never will, “says Matchbox Twenty lead singer-songwriter Rob Thomas. “And I can’t wait to spend another summer out there on the road with the Crows.” Thomas previously teamed with Counting Crows for a hugely successful 2016 summer co-headline tour.
“To be honest, we took a vote after last year and decided to spend every summer with Rob from now on,” says Counting Crows’ Adam Duritz. “Can. Not. Wait.”This year celebrates the 20th anniversary of Matchbox Twenty and their breakthrough debut album Yourself or Someone Like You, which has sold more than 15 million copies worldwide. Fueled by such classic singles as “Real World,” “Back 2 Good” and the #1 smash hits “Push” and “3 AM,” the album proved a worldwide sensation and instantly established Matchbox Twenty as global superstars. Since then, Matchbox Twenty has achieved cumulative worldwide album sales of more than 30 million and earned multiple #1 singles including “Bent”, “Unwell” and “If You’re Gone” along with countless accolades including five Grammy® nominations, four American Music Award nods and the 2004 People’s Choice Award for “Favorite Musical Group.” Exile on Mainstream, released in 2007, yielded the certified platinum and #1 single “How Far We’ve Come.” The band’s most recent album, North, exploded into the top position on the Billboard 200 upon its 2012 release – Matchbox Twenty’s first-ever chart-topper and #1 debut. Matchbox Twenty is Thomas, Paul Doucette, Kyle Cook, and Brian Yale. Counting Crows - made up of Duritz on vocals, Jim Bogios (drums), David Bryson (guitar), Charlie Gillingham (keyboards), David Immergluck (guitar), Millard Powers (bass), and Dan Vickrey (guitar) – have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide after exploding onto the music scene with their multi-platinum breakout album August and Everything After in 1993. The band released their seventh studio album, Somewhere Under Wonderland, in September 2014. Known for creating unique and innovative concerts, Counting Crows is recognized as one of the pre-eminent touring live rock bands.
