Gen-X favorite Third Eye Blind rewards Houston with anniversary concert
Rock band Third Eye Blind is launching a tour to mark their 20th anniversary, in which they'll play their entire 1997 self-titled debut album, with a stop in Houston at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion on July 14.
The Summer Gods Tour will make 31 stops, beginning on June 9 in Miami, and concluding on July 23 at the Greek Theatre in Berkley, California. Tickets go on sale January 26; prices have not yet been announced.
In 2016, the band released an EP called We Are Drugs and performed at a number of festivals including Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo. Singer Stephan Jenkins is an activist who has supported charitable organizations like "Make Room," Children’s Hospitals, PETA, and the Jimmy Miller foundation.
On tour, they'll be joined by Silversun Pickups, and another special guest, still to be announced. The band uses no sequencers or backing tracks when they perform live, and has been known to pop in to parking lot parties before the show.
Citi card members will get a pre-sale beginning on January 24 at 10 am local time. For details visit www.citiprivatepass.com.
