Matchbox Twenty and Counting Crows will spend this summer on a major tour together

Matchbox Twenty is back. The Rob Thomas-fronted pop-rock group, which got its start back in the mid-‘90s and has remained active over the years, has announced a major 2017 summer tour with Counting Crows.

The run, which is dubbed “A Brief History of Everything Tour 2017,” will set off July 12 in Spokane, Washington, and run though an Oct. 1 performance in Dallas, Texas.

Pre-sale stars tomorrow (March 28), and tickets go on sale to the general public Friday (March 31). For more details and ticket information, head to the groups’ official websites at www.matchboxtwenty.com and www.countingcrows.com.

This year actually marks the 20th anniversary of Matchbox Twenty and their seminal debut album, “Yourself or Someone Like You,” which has sold more than 15 million worldwide. The album has some of the band’s biggest radio hits, including “3AM” and “Push.”

“No matter what I will ever do, nothing feels like home as much as playing these songs with these guys and it never will,” Thomas said in an official statement. “And I can’t wait to spend another summer out there on the road with the Crows.”

“To be honest, we took a vote after last year and decided to spend every summer with Rob from now on,” Counting Crows’ Adam Duritz added. “Can. Not. Wait.”
