Matchbox Twenty will embark on a massive North American tour this summer with the fittingly loquacious name, Matchbox Twenty 2020. The tour consists of more than 50 shows, and it kicks off July 17th at the Wind Creek Event Center in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and wraps September 28th at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The Wallflowers will serve as support throughout the run.
Matchbox Twenty’s 2020 tour marks their first since 2017, when they reunited to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album, Yourself or Someone Like You.

More About Matchbox Twenty
Matchbox Twenty rose to international fame with their debut album, Yourself or Someone Like You (1996), which was certified 12× Platinum (diamond) in the United States and multi-platinum in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. Their second album, Mad Season, released in 2000, charted in the top three on the Billboard 200 and was certified 4× Platinum in the United States. Their third album, More Than You Think You Are, released in 2002, was only certified 2× Platinum in the United States, despite its singles receiving significant airplay.
The band then went on hiatus in 2004 after rhythm guitarist Adam Gaynor’s departure. As a result, Paul Doucette took over rhythm guitar when the band reunited in 2007. They released a compilation album, Exile on Mainstream, which was certified Gold in the United States. After the release, the band toured to support it. Matchbox Twenty then took another hiatus while Rob Thomas embarked on a successful solo career but reunited again in 2010. On September 4, 2012, the band released their fourth studio album, North, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200.
