Due to popular demand, Matchbox Twenty have added a second show for Dublin’s Vicar Street, 12th April 2013. Tickets go on sale this Thursday 20th December at 9.00am.
With more than 30 million records sold worldwide, Matchbox Twenty has earned countless accolades, including five Grammy nominations, four American Music Award nods, the 2004 People’s Choice Award for “Favorite Musical Group.” What’s more, Rob Thomas has proven one of the most highly decorated artists of recent years, receiving three Grammy Awards, 11 BMI Awards, and two Billboard “Songwriter of the Year” honors for both his chart-topping solo work as well as collaborations with such legends as Santana, Mick Jagger, and Willie Nelson.
Thomas’ collaboration with Carlos Santana on “Smooth” was also named the #2 Most Popular Song Ever on Billboard’s List of the 100 Most Popular songs behind “The Twist.” He was also named to Billboard’s Top 20 List of Hot 100 Songwriters 2000-2011 at #5 and was the top ranking artist/songwriter on the list.
Released at the end of August Matchbox Twenty’s fourth full-length studio recording 'North' was the first all-new album in a decade! The album sees the band driving their pop-rock sound further forward, magnifying the indelible melodies, crafty lyricism, and glorious hooks that have defined their multi-platinum body of work. Matchbox Twenty – Rob Thomas, Paul Doucette, Kyle Cook and Brian Yale – lived together last summer in a house in Nashville where they collaborated on the new material before once again joining forces with the Grammy Award-winning producer Matt Serletic at his Emblem Studios in Calabasas, California. The result of their labors stands among the band’s finest, with songs like “She’s So Mean’, “Overjoyed” and “Put Your Hands Up” marked by Matchbox Twenty’s instantly identifiable sonic approach and unadulterated high spirits.
