Rob Thomas has 'Something' to Prove on Canada-Heavy Tour

Published: 2006-02-03
Matchbox 20 front man Rob Thomas has been touring behind his successful solo release, ...Something to Be, since last fall, and now the pop rocker is doing a North American tour that hits more Canadian cities than American ones.

As lead singer of Matchbox 20, Thomas sold millions of albums and flew to success on the back of singles like "Push," "Bent," and "Unwell." But it wasn't until Thomas broke out on his own to do a duet with Carlos Santana that he earned a Grammy Award for the single "Smooth."

Thomas's solo CD hit number one on the Billboard charts in its first week, making him the first front-man-gone-solo to accomplish this feat.

Even with all of his solo success, Thomas hasn't left Matchbox 20 behind him, performing three shows with the band this past New Year's Eve. A follow-up to the band's 2002 album, More Than You Think You Are, is rumoured.

Tickets for most shows go on sale either today or tomorrow, with the exception of the Winnipeg show, the tickets for which go on sale February 10th.

Here's where he'll be:

March 10, Moncton, NB - Moncton Coliseum
March 11, Saint John, NB - Harbour Station
March 12, Halifax, NS - Metro Centre
March 14, Montreal, QC - Bell Centre
