Fantasy Springs announces Matchbox Twenty

13 November 2012

INDIO, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- On Saturday, March 30th Rob Thomas will make his return to the Special Events Center stage at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. This is the same stage where he performed solo in front of a sold-out crowd just two years ago. This time, however, Thomas will return with his band mates from his four-time Grammy-nominated band, Matchbox Twenty.

After being together on and off for more than 15 years, Matchbox Twenty has four commercially successful pop-rock albums to their name. The band’s most recent album, North, was released in September of 2012 and debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200 list. Their newest album has spawned instant buzz among critics with radio hit singles “She’s So Mean” and “Overjoyed.”

North comes 10 years after the group’s last studio album, the smash hit More Than You Think You Are. This album tied up radio airwaves for more than a year with singles including Grammy-nominated hit “Unwell,” “Bright Lights” and “Disease,” which was co-written with Rolling Stones legend Mick Jagger.

Powered by Thomas’s distinct voice and songwriting ability, the band has been a hit machine, churning out a number of Top 40 hits such as “Push,” “Real World,” “Back 2 Good,” “Mad Season,” “Disease,” and “How Far We’ve Come.” The band has also produced four #1 singles, “3 a.m.,” “Bent,” “If You’re Gone” and “Unwell.”

Tickets for the 8PM Matchbox Twenty performance go on sale Friday, December 14th for $109, $89, $69, $49 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via telephone (800) 827-2946 or online at
