Prudential Center presents Matchbox 20 and Andy Grammer as part of North to Shore Festival

(NEWARK, NJ) -- The Prudential Center presents Matchbox 20 and Andy Grammer on Thursday, June 27, 2024 at 8:00pm. The concert is part of the North to Shore festival, which takes place in Asbury Park (June 10-16), Atlantic City (June 17-23), and Newark (June 23-30).

Prepare to be blown away by Matchbox 20, led by the inimitable Rob Thomas. This is a show that promises fun and energy, a unique experience you won't want to miss. Matchbox 20 started strong out of the gate with their debut album, 1996's Yourself or Someone Like You.

Released incredibly only a year after the band had formed in Florida, it was a classic post-grunge record, eschewing the heavy sounds of Nirvana et al. for a more traditional, acoustic-tinged rock sound. Over two decades later, Rob and the boys are still going strong. Matchbox 20 will perform a mix of their classic hits and new songs from their latest release, Where the Light Goes—and get ready for plenty of surprises along the way!

Tickets to see Matchbox 20 and Andy Grammer start at $70.50 and are available for purchase online. Prudential Center is located at 25 Lafayette Street in Newark, New Jersey.

Special guest Andy Grammer, an American singer and songwriter, will join the tour in support. Grammer will perform his hit singles "Keep Your Head Up" and "Fine by Me and many other hit songs. Grammer learned to play the trumpet, the guitar, and the piano as a child and was writing songs at age 15. He graduated from California State University, Northridge, with a B.A. in Music Industry Studies. Grammer married recording artist Aijia Lise Guttman, known professionally as Aijia.
