Fresh off an overseas tour that included an appearance at the iTunes Festival 2012 in London, chart-toppers Matchbox Twenty—Rob Thomas, Paul Doucette, Kyle Cook and Brian Yale—will perform at Mystic Lake on Friday, February 8.
Matchbox Twenty‟s blockbuster album “NORTH,” the band‟s fourth full-length studio recording and first all-new album in a decade, exploded into the No. 1 position on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 this year after its first week in release. Fueled by critical acclaim—and the hit singles “She‟s So Mean” and “Overjoyed”—the album‟s unprecedented success marked the band‟s first-ever No. 1 debut.
In addition to more than 30 million records sold worldwide, Matchbox Twenty has earned countless accolades, including five Grammy nominations, four American Music Award nods, and the 2004 People‟s Choice Award for “Favorite Musical Group.”
Matchbox Twenty front man Rob Thomas is 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 his solo work as well as collaborations with such legends as Santana, Mick Jagger, and Willie Nelson. Thomas‟ collaboration with
Carlos Santana on “Smooth” was named the No. 2 “Most Popular Song Ever” on Billboard‟s list of the “100 Most Popular Songs Behind „The Twist.‟” Thomas was also named to Billboard‟s “Top 20 List of Hot 100 Songwriters 2000-2011,” and was the top-ranking artist/songwriter on the list.
