Smash Mouth, Toad The Wet Sprocket and Tonic have come together for a U.S. summer tour which will begin June 19th in the Pacific Northwest. Tickets are on sale along with special VIP Meet and Greet packages in select markets.
“Super excited to hit the road this summer with the guys from Toad and Tonic! Get ready because as you know Smash Mouth will be bringing the party!” says Smash Mouth’s Steve Harwell.
And the timing seems right, as all three bands are coming upon career milestones: Smash Mouth celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2014; while Toad The Wet Sprocket celebrates 30 years together along with the 25th anniversary of their platinum selling album fear (1991) in the upcoming year; and Tonic approaches the 20th anniversary of the platinum selling debut Lemon Parade (1996) which featured “If You Could Only See,” Rock Radio’s most played song of 1997.
“I’m happy to be hitting the road with Toad, Tonic and Smashmouth this summer. Hope we’ll see you all out there!” enthuses Glen Phillips.
“So much of the time we spend on the road, we always miss friends in other bands by one day or one city,” says Tonic’s Emerson Hart. “We are looking forward to playing music with some old friends and being able to actually watch them play. It’s going to be a fun summer.”
Along with supporting their favorite bands, fans will be able to support a range of causes close to the bands hearts including local food based initiatives (partners TBA) and health- based initiatives in conjunction with Love, Hope, Strength (http://www.lovehopestrength.org/ ) who will be on site in select markets registering potential marrow donors and generating awareness about their cancer centers and education programs.
