THE BAND LIVE KICK OFF THE SUMMERLAND TOUR TONIGHT
MULTI-PLATINUM BAND SPENDS THE INDY 500 WITH THE ANDRETTI'S AND THURSDAY MORNING CELEBRATING THE ARMY RESERVE'S 105TH BIRTHDAY
Los Angeles, CA- May 29, 2013 - Multi-platinum rock band LIVE are hitting the road again, starting tonight in Ft. Meyers, FL on the Summerland tour with Everclear, Filter and Sponge. The 40 city tour will bring the bands across the US and back, ending in Kansas City on July 28. Last weekend, prior to kicking off the tour, LIVE accomplished a huge personal dream most kids grow up having (on top of being a rock star, of course) - teaming up with world famous Andretti Autosport at the Indianapolis 500. Not only did the band perform at the Andretti's annual Night Before Party, but they were featured on the No. 25 Chevrolet piloted by third-generation racer Marco Andretti. Earlier in the week, LIVE were proud to perform at the annual Racing for Cancer The Yellow Party fundraiser to kick off the Indy 500 festivities.
Tomorrow, May 30, LIVE will be heading to the United States Army Reserve Aviation Support Facility on St. Petersburg/Clearwater International Airport to commemorate the 105th birthday of the U.S. Army Reserve before heading to the Mahaffey Theatre for the Summerland show that evening.
The York, Pennsylvania band-lead guitarist Chad Taylor, bassist Patrick Dahlheimer, drummer Chad Gracey, and vocalist Chris Shinn are looking forward to heading out on the road to play the songs everyone knows so well along with testing out some new material. Throughout their career, LIVE has sold over 22 million albums worldwide. Rolling Stone and MTV both dubbed the albumThrowing Copper as "One of the 25 Greatest Rock Albums of All-Time", while tastemakers fromSpin to The New York Times lauded it with equal praise.
LIVE has already been hard at work in the studio with plans to release a full length album later this year.
