Now.. a little about the bands...
Seventeen years after scoring the Grammy Award winning, harmonica laced Billboard Top Ten breakthrough hit that came to define pop music in the mid-90s, Blues Traveler are still finding unique ways to ensure that they don’t give their legion of worldwide fans the “Run-Around.” On their instantly infectious, musically expansive 11th studio album and 429 Records/SLG debut, Suzie Cracks The Whip, they remain creatively focused while dramatically expanding their musical horizons upon celebrating their 25th anniversary as a band.

In 1991, Pocket Full of Kryptonite became both a musical and cultural phenomenon. In the years since, the album has remained a crucial touchstone, both for the band and for its fans. One of the 100 best-selling albums of the 1990s, it's sold more than five million copies in the U.S. and an additional five million overseas. Two decades after its creation, the album remains a compelling distillation of the Spin Doctors' diverse musical interests, and a prime example of a group of musicians seizing a historic moment to make timeless music.
The Spin Doctors are celebrating the anniversary with Sony Legacy's digital release of a special expanded edition of Pocket Full of Kryptonite, combining the original album with a treasure trove of previously unreleased demos, studio outtakes and live tracks. The band is also honoring Pocket Full of Kryptonite with an extended run of shows-their first full tour since the '90s-in which they'll perform the entire album, something they've never done before.
Pocket Full of Kryptonite elevated the Spin Doctors from a grass-roots local phenomenon to a world-class recording act. Such enduring signature tunes as "Two Princes," "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong," "Jimmy Olsen's Blues," "What Time Is It?" and "Forty or Fifty" embody the band's trademark mix of hit songwriting, a funky sensibility and wildly adventurous instrumental acrobatics.
