Matchbox Twenty, Counting Crows to play West Palm Beach

Rob Thomas and Matchbox Twenty will reunite with buddies Counting Crows on a co-headlining summer tour that stops Aug. 16 at Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach.

Tickets will go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, March 31, at LiveNation.com, with fan-club, VIP and other ticket presales beginning 10 a.m. Tuesday. For more information, visit MatchboxTwenty.com and CountingCrows.com (presale password CROWS17).

The tour is a reprise of sorts of a 2016 summer tour by a solo Thomas and the Crows that packed the PVA with fans of two bands that have crossed paths on the pop charts since the mid 1990s.

It’s been 20 years since Matchbox Twenty achieved instant success with their debut album, “Yourself or Someone Like You,” which includes the hits “3 A.M.,” “Push” and “Real World.” The album came three years after the Adam Duritz-led Counting Crows broke out with their platinum-selling debut, “August and Everything After,” featuring hit singles "Mr. Jones" and “Round Here,” and fan favorites such as “Rain King,” “Anna Begins” and “Perfect Blue Buildings.”

“We took a vote after last year and decided to spend every summer with Rob from now on,” Duritz says in a tour statement. “Can. Not. Wait.”
