Seating Options

Counting Crows

  • Song of theirs you definitely know by heart: “Mr. Jones”
  • Where you’ve heard it: on the car radio, on the jukebox, in your own head, and on your cassette tape of August and Everything After, their debut album
  • That album’s greatest distinctions: it was certified platinum seven times in both the U.S. and Canada; it spawned the hits “Omaha,” “‘Round Here,” and “Rain King”
  • Number of Academy Award nominations: one, for “Accidentally In Love” from Shrek 2
  • How their live show stays fresh: lead singer Adam Duritz often infuses the band’s songs with lyrics or melodies from other artists
  • Speaking of other artists: Counting Crows famously covered Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi”
  • Other covers: Grateful Dead’s “Friend of the Devil” and Coby Brown’s “Hospital,” both of which can be found on the band’s live album, Echoes of the Outlaw Roadshow
  • In addition to the band’s extensive catalogue of hits, this tour will feature songs from the band’s forthcoming album, Somewhere Under Wonderland—its first with original material in seven years, scheduled to be released in September 2014

Toad the Wet Sprocket

  • Where the folk-pop band got that name: from a fictitious band in a Monty Python sketch
  • How you got to know them: through their contemplative hits “All I Want” and “Walk on the Ocean” from 1991’s fear
  • How you got to know them even better: from singing along to the infectious “Something’s Always Wrong” from their fourth album, Dulcinea
  • Their sound: socially-conscious lyrics; songs about nostalgia and love; lead singer Glen Phillips’ emotive tenor
  • Why they should win the award for Friendliest Band Breakup Ever: even during their 1-year hiatus, the members continued working together in one-off projects, with sporadic reunions here and there
  • Their latest project: New Constellation, an album that was funded through Kickstarter
