Last year Matchbox Twenty performed a sold out event here at The Paramount and now lead vocalist and primary composer, Rob Thomas, will play another sold out event on May 5th. Rob’s distinctive voice and graceful aging has us naming him our man crush this Monday. We can’t wait for another intimate night with Rob Thomas as he performs all of his greatest hits along with his solo work.
Matchbox Twenty released their last studio album entitled North last year, but Rob still feels that his solo career is equally as important and should remain a priority. “The reason I do what I do is because I have all these songs that are always building up in my head, so it’s really cathartic to get a load of them out into the world and start over again. And the solo career is a really important way for me to do that.”
In 2004, the Songwriters Hall of Fame presented Thomas with its first ever “Starlight Award,” which was created to recognize a songwriter in the early years of his or her career. He has made a lasting impact on music and in the hearts of men and women all over the world. We look forward to having Rob Thomas back at The Paramount and he has given us another reason to celebrate Cinco de Mayo aka "Cinco de Rob".
