Everclear to lead 90’s tour with Live, Filter & Sponge
After successfully partnering with Sugar Ray, Gin Blossoms, Lit and Marcy Playground for the 90’s fueled “Summerland” tour last year, Everclear frontman Art Alexakis has announced plans for a second installment of 90’s nostalgia in 2013. This time around, the band will join forces with fellow 90’s rock favorites Live, Filter and Sponge for the “Summerland 2013 – Alternative Guitars” tour.
The summer trek will stop in Boston for a night at the House of Blues on Saturday, June 15. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation for $35 and $45.
“Last year’s Summerland was a blast,” declared Alexakis in a press release. “This year we’ve brought a decidedly edgier flavor bill to satisfy all of the fans of 90s rock and roll out there. It’s going to be an amazing summer night every night on Summerland 2013 Alternative Guitars.”
Everclear will be touring in support of 2012’s Invisible Stars, their first album of new material in six years.
Live will deliver their first Boston show with new frontman Chris Shinn, who has taken over the role vacated by Ed Kowalczyk after the band parted ways in 2009.
Led by Richard Patrick, Filter will release their sixth studio album The Sun Comes Out Tonight in June. Meanwhile, Vinnie Dombroskis’ Sponge will also be promoting a new album after the release of Stop The Bleeding earlier this month.
The tour will return to New England for a stop at New Hampshire’s Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom on Saturday, July 20. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster for $30. Prior to the show in New Hampshire, the tour will hit Connecticut for a night at the Ives Concert Park in Danbury on Friday, July 19.
