Multi-platinum rockers Matchbox Twenty will bring their “NORTH” American Tour to Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Saturday, December 15 at 10 a.m.
The 2013 tour celebrates Matchbox Twenty’s blockbuster album, NORTH, which exploded onto the #1 position on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 after its first week in release earlier this year. Fueled by critical acclaim – as well as the hit singles, “She’s So Mean” and “Overjoyed” – the album’s unprecedented success marked the band’s first-ever chart-topper and #1 debut.
Matchbox Twenty’s fourth full-length studio recording and first all-new album in a decade, NORTH, sees the band driving their pop-rock sound further forward, magnifying the indelible melodies, crafty lyricism, and glorious hooks that have defined their multi-platinum body of work.
Matchbox Twenty – Rob Thomas, Paul Doucette, Kyle Cook and Brian Yale – has sold more than 30 million records, worldwide, and has earned countless accolades, including five Grammy nominations, four American Music Award nods, the 2004 People’s Choice Award for Favorite Musical Group.
Furthermore, Rob Thomas has proven one of the most highly decorated artists of recent years, receiving three Grammy Awards, 11 BMI Awards, and two Billboard Songwriter of the Year honors for both his chart-topping solo work as well as collaborations with such legends as Santana, Mick Jagger and Willie Nelson. Thomas’ collaboration with Carlos Santana on “Smooth” was also named the #2 Most Popular Song Ever on Billboard’s list of the 100 Most Popular Songs Behind ‘The Twist.’ He was also named to Billboard’s Top 20 List of Hot 100 Songwriters 2000-2011 at #5, and was the top ranking artist/songwriter on the list.
