Matchbox Twenty and the Goo Goo Dolls

Lets go to the Matchbox Twenty concert.

Matchbox Twenty

When most bands go on hiatus, they either return rusty, or they don’t come back at all. Luckily, Matchbox Twenty isn’t most bands. After three consecutive hit albums, including the diamond-selling debut Yourself or Someone Like You, Matchbox Twenty took a break and singer Rob Thomas forged a successful solo career. Today, the group comes back like it never left with its latest album, North, which debuted at the top of the charts. With Thomas’s sultry vocals bolstered by a newfound pep, the band embarks on its 2013 tour with the polish of a veteran arena act and the energy provided by fresh material. Fans can expect classic hits, such as “3 a.m.” and “Push,” mixed with new gems such as the infectious feel-good smash “She’s So Mean.”

 

Goo Goo Dolls

Something sounds different about “Rebel Beat,” the kickoff track of the Goo Goo Dolls'latest album, Magnetic. Atop of a shimmering dance-club pulse, tinkering keyboards bead up like rain on a windshield as John Rzeznik’s voice tunefully rasps. Then the chorus kicks in, and suddenly it’s pure, cinematic euphoria. But this isn’t the sound of a band doing an about-face. Longtime fans know that every Goo Goo Dolls album is different, from the early pop-punk days to their conquering of the alternative scene and a current turn to more layered songwriting. On their latest tour, the band launches into its rich songbook of acoustic and electric alchemy, mixing favorites such as "Iris," "Slide," and “Name” with charged numbers from Magnetic.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
