(AUS) ROB THOMAS has had an ongoing, 20-year long, love affair with Australian audiences – both as the frontman, lead vocalist and key songwriter for Matchbox Twenty and also as a major solo artist.
In February 2016, that romance will continue as Thomas makes a very welcome return down-under for a national headline tour.
Touring in support of his first solo album in more than six years, the long-awaited The Great Unknown, Thomas’ summer tour will include a special night under the stars, ‘On The Steps’ at the Sydney Opera House, three winery shows, including at A Day On The Green in Queensland and Victoria, as well as a headline Melbourne arena performance and Perth and Canberra performances.
Rob Thomas will also be the headliner at the Clipsal 500 Post-Race concert in Adelaide on Sunday, March 6.
“I’ll be playing some of the new stuff, some of the old stuff, a little bit of everything, it’s pretty exciting…” said Thomas of The Great Unknown World Tour.
Joining Rob Thomas on all dates will be special guest Pete Murray, with Darren Middleton of Powderfinger fame appearing at the three winery shows.
