2012 Billboard chart-topping band Matchbox Twenty set to play ImpactRocks concert live in Las Vegas at Venetian on April 30th 2013
We are really overjoyed to announce that Rob Thomas, Paul Doucette, Kyle Cook and Brian Yale are joining us at Impact! Overjoyed is the name of one of the hit singles from Matchbox Twenty's new album North making it so fitting. It is also apropos to mention here that Matchbox Twenty has made a big impact this year with their new album and 2013 tour.
The 2013 tour celebrates Matchbox Twenty’s blockbuster album, “NORTH,” which exploded into the #1 position on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 after its first week in release earlier this year. Fueled by critical acclaim – as well as the hit singles, “She’s So Mean” and “Overjoyed” – the album’s unprecedented success marked the band’s first-ever chart-topper and #1 debut.
The ImpactRocks concert at the Venetian on April 30 is sure to be a fantastic rock show capped the 2013 MB20 tour schedule. Matchbox Twenty has created a very cool social media experience called "North" to coincide with their new album and tour. It is a custom Facebook timeline of their discography of songs from Spotify interwoven along side historical footnotes presenting fans the opportunity to share their experiences with the band's music and concerts.
The Impact team would like to offer some neat sharing opportunities especially for the ImpactRocks concert crowd. We have created the ImpactRocks spotify playlist to give conference attendees the chance to share their favorite Matchbox Twenty tracks. It's easy to share with spotify collaborative playlists; learn how. Stay tuned to the playlist and enjoy it on your smart phone before the event!
