As part of a 35-city tour across the United States, alternative rock bands Everclear, Live, Filter, and Sponge are stopping in Northwest Arkansas. Turn on radio stations across the country and you’re still likely to hear hits from these four bands. With songs like “Father of Mine,” “Santa Monica,” “Lightning Crashes,” “I Alone,” “Hey Man, Nice Shot,” “Take a Picture,” “Plowed,” and “Molly”— and the list goes on and on — Summerland Tour 2013 represents a huge value for music fans and a great summer’s night out.
with Art Alexakis (lead vocals/guitar), Dave French (guitar/vocals), Freddy Herrera ( bass/vocals), Sean Winchester (drums/vocals) and Josh Crawley (keyboards/vocals)
With modern rock hits and radio staples “Santa Monica,” “Everything to Everyone,” “I Will Buy You a New Life,” “Father of Mine” and “Wonderful,” Everclear has sold more than nine million albums globally. Last year the band released Invisible Stars, their first album of new material in six years.
with Chris Shinn (lead vocals), Chad Taylor (guitars), Patrick Dahlheimer (bass) and Chad Gracey (drums)
Exploding onto the ‘90s alternative music scene with a string of hits such as “I Alone,” “Lightning Crashes,” “Lakini’s Juice,” “Dolphins Cry,” “Operation Spirit,” “Selling the Drama,” “White, Discussion” and “All Over You,” Live is back touring with their signature spiritual sound headed up by new lead singer, Chris Shinn, formerly of Unified Theory. Live has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide.
with Richard Patrick (lead vocals/guitar), Jonathan Radtke (guitar), Phil Buckman (bass/backing vocals) and Jeff Fabb (drums)
Filter indoctrinated listeners with a stereophonic assault of hurtling drum machine-generated beats, raw guitar riffs and vocalist/guitarist Richard Patrick’s impassioned vocals on their debut album, the platinum-certified Short Bus. Brandishing an extensive body of material spanning five albums and several motion picture soundtrack contributions, Filter’s tracks include “Take A Picture”, “Welcome To The Fold” and landmark collaboration with The Crystal Method for “(Can’t You) Trip Like I Do”. Filter’s album The Sun Comes Out Tonight is slated for release in June 2013.
with Vinnie Dombroski (lead vocals), Kyle Neely (guitar), Andy Patalan (guitar), Tim Patalan (bass) and Billy Adams (drums)
Detroit-based alternative rock band Sponge went platinum on their debut album, Rotting Piñata and went Top 5 on the charts in the mid 1990’s with songs, “Plowed” and “Molly (16 Candles)”. One of the most sought after live acts around, Sponge has shared the stage with such mega-artists as Guns N’ Roses, Nickelback, Iggy Pop, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains and Kiss. Sponge’s latest release is the album Stop the Bleeding.
