Rob Thomas, lead singer of Matchbox Twenty and a hugely successful solo artist in his own right, returns to Australia this summer for a limited series of concerts in arenas and at the popular ‘a day on the green’ winery events.
Thomas is a prolific songwriter who has contributed to the sales of over 80 million albums worldwide to date – as lead singer/songwriter with Matchbox Twenty, as an award-winning collaborator with the likes of Willie Nelson, Mick Jagger, Bernie Taupin and Carlos Santana, and most recently as a solo artist.
The tour’s special guest will be one of the great voices of Australian music, Vanessa Amorosi. Her album “Somewhere In the World” yielded the gorgeous platinum single “Perfect” which has been nominated in the upcoming APRA Awards as The Most Played Australian Work for 2008. Most recently Vanessa teamed up with US rockers Hoobastank featuring on their song and video for “The Letter”. Her live performances are always acclaimed and of course, expect the hits we all love ‘Absolutely Everybody’ and ‘Shine’.
