About The Counting Crows and Rob Thomas:

The Counting Crows are following up their critically-acclaimed seventh album, Somewhere Under Wonderland, with the US leg of their 2016 tour making a stop in Bethlehem. The Counting Crows, recognized as one of the most dynamic live bands performing today, sold more than 20 million albums worldwide after exploding onto the music scene with their multiplatinum breakout album August and Everything After in 1993. The album produced a handful of Modern Rock hit singles —”Mr. Jones” (#2, 1993) and “Round Here” (#7, 1994) —climbed to #4, and went on to sell 7 million copies as the band seemed to connect with fans of both alternative and classic rock.

The group will be performing songs from their seventh studio album, the 2014 Top 10 album, Somewhere Under Wonderland, which critics have been claiming as the “band’s best”, as well as hits from their extensive catalog

Joining the Counting Crows will be Emblem/Atlantic recording artist Rob Thomas, one of the most distinctive artists of this or any other era – a gifted vocalist, spellbinding performer, and accomplished songwriter known worldwide as lead singer and primary composer with Matchbox Twenty as well as for his multi-platinum certified solo work and chart-topping collaborations with other artists. Among his countless hits are solo classics like “Lonely No More,” “This Is How A Heart Breaks,” and “Streetcorner Symphony,” Matchbox Twenty favorites including “Push,” “3AM,” “If You’re Gone,” and “Bent,” and of course  “Smooth,” his 3x RIAA platinum certified worldwide hit collaboration with Santana.

Thomas’ most recent solo album, 2009’s “CRADLESONG,” marked still another milestone, generating two #1 singles in “Her Diamonds” and “Someday.”  Rob made Billboard chart history once again as the only male artist with multiple #1 hits at Adult Top 40.
