Rob Thomas and Matchbox Twenty Coming to Chicago

Matchbox Twenty Coming to Chicago

Rob Thomas of Matchbox 20 by Coren McLeod

There is not a band that has influenced me more in my lifetime than the one and only Matchbox Twenty.

Since the 1st time I heard the song Push at the age of 17 years old, I was hypnotized.   The truthful lyrics, the mesmerizing guitar work and the voice of a man that has taken me on a journey for the past 20 years...  (Seriously, no pun here...)

I would go on to miss school dances to watch a Matchbox Twenty concert on MTV.  I would buy multiple copies of their cds so I would have one in my car and one in my room.  I would go on to see them live in concert a total of 12 times to be in tears hearing all my favorite songs with a band I have grown up with.

Last summer, I had the greatest opportunity to be in the photo pit when Rob Thomas played at Northern Island on August 24th, 2016.  With all will power and hoping my car brake would not give out on me, I made it to Chicago.  I was in the photo pit in aww of the fact I have come full circle.   The man himself came out on stage and I could not stop staring.  Than I had to remind myself I was there to take photos and to do my job....

On September 17th, 2017 Matchbox Twenty and The Counting Crowes will be in Tinely Park with their "A Brief History" Tour.

I am excited to see the reunited guys of Matchbox Twenty playing their hits from "Yourself or Someone Like You" to "Exhile on Main Stream..."

There is no other band I would rather see live than Rob and the guys.  And with that, I thank you!
