After three multi-platinum albums, an incredible string of chart-topping hits and an almost five-year hiatus since their last studio album, audiences demanded they pick up where they left off. In a special rock performance, Matchbox Twenty showcases selections from their new record, Exile on Mainstream, a retrospective collection of 11 previously- released smash singles and six new songs. Truly a staple of modern rock, Matchbox Twenty has mastered the art of entertaining. Lead vocalist Rob Thomas commands the audience as he belts out soulful renditions of their catchy and often poignant classics, while the band provides a catchy pop rock back drop. Since their debut they have earned five Grammy nominations and three American Music Award nominations, while Thomas separately earned three Grammy Awards, 13 BMI Awards, and was twice named Billboard's Songwriter of the Year during his sensational solo career.
