Summerland Tour 2012: Everclear, Sugar Ray, Gin Blossoms, Lit, and Marcy Playground
Head back into the ‘90’s this weekend on Friday night when the Summerland Tour heats up the Delta Classic Chastain Park Amphitheater Friday 13 July 2012. The lineup includes ‘90’s radio favorites, Everclear, Sugar Ray, Gin Blossoms, Lit, and Marcy Playground.
Remember Everclear’s “Santa Monica,” “Everything to Everyone,” I Will Buy You A New Life,” “Father of Mine,” and “Wonderful”? They have sold more than 9 million albums globally and just released their first new album in six years, Invisible Stars. The album debuted at #119 on the Billboard 200. So keep your ears open during the show for their new single, “Be Careful What You Ask For.”
In the late ‘90’s, Sugar Ray dominated the pop charts with “Every Morning,” “Someday,” and “Fly.” They continued to release hit songs into the early 2000’s with “When It’s Over.” Lead singer Mark McGrath went on to be a three-time Champion of VH1’s Rock & Roll Jeopardy and in 2010 hosted Don’t Forget the Lyrics. Ladies love him because of his charm and it doesn’t hurt that he was named People magazine’s “Sexiest Rocker” in 1998.
The Gin Blossoms really don’t need an introduction, but here it is anyway – Gin Blossoms’ five time platinum album New Miserable Experience dominated the radio airwaves for most of the ‘90’s with hits, “Hey Jealousy,” “Found Out About You,” “Alison Road,” and “Until I Fall Away.” They also had the hit “’Til I Hear From You” on Empire Records platinum selling soundtrack. In 1996, singles “Follow You Down” and “As Long As It Matters” helped the album Congratulations I’m Sorry achieve platinum status. They still tour constantly, boasting 120 tour dates per year and look forward to rockin’ out with you at the Summerland 2012 tour.
Lit recently released The View From The Bottom, which is their first album in 8 years. This is the band’s first album since the passing of founding member and drummer Allen Shellenberger. Lit’s first album, A Place In The Sun, came out in 1999 with a number one hit song, “My Own Worst Enemy” and the Top Ten single “Miserable.”
In 1997, Marcy Playground’s hit “Sex and Candy” was consistently played on rock radio stations everywhere. Since then they have continued to tour and have released four additional albums. Their fifth record, Lunch, Recess, and Detention is set to be released soon (possibly July 2012).
