Mr Thomas and Me...

Two icons of late-90s rock head out on tour together this year as Matchbox Twenty and Counting Crows take to the road to gig across the US in their "A Brief History Of Everything" Tour! Set to last almost three months, the tour will see the two bands share the limelight to play fans a selection of their greatest hits from their illustrious discographies.

Matchbox Twenty were a hit right from their very first album which was Diamond certified in the USA and multi-platinum in Australia, Canada and New Zealand! Formed in Florida in 1995, the band has been very lucky to see few line-up changes during their seventeen-year history.

Formed in San Francisco in the early 90s, it was Counting Crows' 1991 debut August and Everything After which shot them to fame. Overseen by uber-producer T-Bone Burnett, it featured the monster hit Mr Jones, which turned the band into a household name overnight. Its easy going blend of alternative rock with just a hint of country stood in sharp contrast to the Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins' releases of the same year, and helped cement their place in rock history.
