Longtime collaborators Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds will continue their busy schedule this year with a summer tour in the US.. While the Dave Matthews Band is currently on hiatus, the guitarists are playing a number of acoustic duo shows with a stop at Jones Beach on June 6. http://bit.ly/jbtrdm  http://DMB.jonesbeach.com

The show will feature Matthews and Reynolds playing stripped-down, acoustic songs. The pair has released three live double-CDs since 1999; the most recent, “Live in Las Vegas,” bowed in 2010. Singer-guitarist Matthews and multi-instrumentalist Reynolds have collaborated in Dave Matthews Band as well as a number of live albums as a duo. Reynolds, who has his own band TR3, performed an intimate, stripped down concert with Matthews at CMAC last summer while DMB was touring.

How’s it going to be? Well, Third Eye Blind plans to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its eponymous debut album by playing it in its entirety at an amphitheater tour that includes a stop at Jones Beach Theater on June 24... http://bit.ly/3rdeb http://3eb.jonesbeach.com

The “Semi-Charmed Life” rockers will also play songs from last year’s “We are Drugs” EP on what they are calling the “Summer Gods” tour, with openers Silversun Pickups. “We are all about fostering a feeling of aliveness and connection,” says singer Stephan Jenkins in a statement. “That’s why we have the summer vibes, because our heat comes from being alive and in the moment and you can only get it when you are willing to keep it real. No one can create the vibes we do fronting over a backing track.”

FOREIGNER / Cheap Trick / Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience - Thur, July 20, 2017 - http://CHEAPTRICK.jonesbeach.com

Foreigner plans to make this year's 40th anniversary summer tour "a family affair" according to group founder Mick Jones -- including the other acts on the bill and the return of some prodigal sons... The group kicks things off in July with a stop at Jones Beach on Thur, July 20th with longtime pals Cheap Trick and former drummer Jason Bonham and his band. And Mick Jones tells Billboard that original Foreigner members Lou Gramm, Ian McDonald and Al Greenwood will be appearing on select dates. "They're not on the whole tour, but there will be some appearances," Jones says. "It's the right time to do this. I'm looking forward to that and we'll see how it goes, and I'm sure it'll go down well."  http://bit.ly/jbcheap17

The reunions will certainly be a highlight during a busy anniversary year for Foreigner. The group will be touring extensively; In addition to the summer dates -- 37 dates running through Sept. 9 in Auburn, Wash.-- the group is also playing U.S. dates starting Jan. 30, with a European tour beginning May 20 in Switzerland. A two-disc, 40-track anniversary compilation with some brand new material is planned, while Jones will be publishing his memoir, A Foreigner's Tale, due out this spring.

"I could never have dreamed this would happen or that we would still have some kind of relevance 40 years later. It's unbelievable, really," says Jones, who formed Foreigner during 1976 in New York, releasing its first album a year later. "I think it's fitting at this point that we do this. I'm very proud of everything we've done and what we've achieved, and of how the new band [lineup] has fought back for me and for the heritage of Foreigner. It's kind of the way I always dreamed that Foreigner would appears, as a very exciting live band and everything that goes along with it. It's really been very inspiring for me."

Looking at the summer tour, Jones refers to Cheap Trick as longtime friends who date back to Foreigner's first headlining tour circa 1978. Bonham, meanwhile, played drums for Foreigner from 2004-2008. "I couldn't be a better mix for me," Jones says. "It's almost like a family tour, with some healthy competition from everybody, I'm sure. Cheap Trick's not an easy band to go on after." Jones expects some collaboration as well once the three acts are on the road together. "I'm sure everybody's gonna get on like a house on fire, so it couldn't be better as far as I'm concerned," he says.

The compilation album, meanwhile, will precede the tour, adding a new recording of "The Flame Still Burns," a song Jones wrote for the 1998 film Still Crazy (the group has already released a video for the song), along with "a few others in the offing, another [new] song that we're working on right now, and then all the greatest hits and more." The lavishly designed A Foreigner's Tale, meanwhile, will offer Jones' insider account of the band's history as well as the rest of his life and music career. "It's a personal history of mine and the evolution of the band and a lot of stories and stories and bunch of photos," he says. "Its a really beautiful presentation. It's more like a coffee table book." Don't expect a lot of tawdry backstage details, however.  "It's not going to be a sensationalist book," Jones says. "There might be a few tidbits here and there, but nothing about penis size or anything like that."

As he prepares for the year, Jones does acknowledge a bit of vindication in Foreigner's longevity. The group has never been a critic's darling (quite the opposite), but it's connected with an audience, scoring 14 Top 20 Hot 100 hits -- with "I Want To Know What Love Is" hitting No. 1 in 1984 -- and six consecutive multi-platinum albums between 1977-84. "[The criticism] did affect me a little bit," Jones says. "We came out at a difficult time -- the dawn of punk and the height of disco mania, and we were just a simple, straight-ahead rock band with some cool songs. So I learned to sort of ignore that kind of wanton dismissal by the critics. I've discovered since that many of the naysayers at the time, including people like Johnny Rotten and Lester Bangs, were all Foreigner air guitar players. I'd hear things like that and get a little chuckle."    Jones, who's overcome some health issues in recent years, calls looking ahead towards Foreigner's 50th anniversary "a bit of a stretch." But he still thinks there's life left in his creation. "There's a real desire to continue as long as I can -- safely," he says. "I look at it as an ongoing thing. I'm realistic; I can't do this forever. It's had a marvelous run and at some point it will be time to hang it up. But it's not what I'm thinking of right now. I'm just very excited for what's ahead this year."

Chicago / Doobie Brothers - Fri, July 28, 2017 - http://bit.ly/jbdb17 - http://CHICAGO.jonesbeach.com

Classic Rock legends Chicago and The Doobie Brothers will share the stage this summer for an evening of classic rock hits spanning both artists’ extensive repertoire of chart topping and award winning hits. http://CHICAGO.jonesbeach.com
Two of the most successful and critically-acclaimed rock bands Chicago and The Doobie Brothers – who have sold more than 150 million records combined – announced today their co-headline North American summer tour kicking off June 7, 2017 in Concord, CA. The 30+ date tour, promoted by Live Nation, will take the Grammy Award-winning and multi-platinum selling groups through amphitheatres in major cities including Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City, Toronto, Las Vegas, Atlanta and Washington, DC for a night of unforgettable live music. The tour will conclude July 30, 2017 in Virginia Beach, VA.

“The perfect summer line-up, playing dozens of the best-loved rockin’ pop classics. I’m happy to be hangin’ out with our ‘Doobie’ friends… a great band,” said Robert Lamm of Chicago. “We’re excited to be touring with the Doobies again. I know we’ll have lots of fun,” adds Lee Loughnane. “Come see us in a city near you.”

"We are so excited to once again be sharing the stage with our wonderful friends Chicago! They're a great band, and musically we fit together very well,” said Tom Johnston of The Doobie Brothers. “We know from past experience what a great show this is going to be for the audience. I'm sure there will be some fun musical surprises along the way too. It's going to be a great summer," adds Patrick Simmons.

Hailed as one of the "most important bands in music since the dawn of the rock and roll era" by former President Bill Clinton, the legendary rock and roll band with horns, Chicago – who celebrate their 50th anniversary as a band this year and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016 after receiving their first nomination – came in at #9, the highest charting American band in Billboard Magazine's Hot 200 All-Time Top Artists. And Chicago is the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six decades. Chicago's album, Chicago Transit Authority, was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame in 2014. Lifetime achievements include a Grammy Award, multiple American Music Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a Chicago street dedicated in their honor, and keys to and proclamations from an impressive list of US cities. Record sales top the 100,000,000 mark, and include 21 Top 10 singles, 5 consecutive Number One albums, 11 Number One singles and 5 Gold singles. An incredible 25 of their 36 albums have been certified platinum, and the band has a total of 47 gold and platinum awards. Chicago have toured every year since the beginning - they’ve never missed a year. The band is now in their 50th consecutive year of touring, and continue to be true ambassadors for their beloved hometown, carrying the city's name with pride and dignity around the world. The band’s award-winning documentary film, Now More Than Ever: The History Of Chicago, premiered on CNN on New Year’s Day 2017. Directed by Peter Pardini, the film is the most comprehensive history of the group’s achievements. Additionally, a remastered version of the band’s classic album Chicago II – CHICAGO II: STEVEN WILSON REMIX – will be available January 27.

The Doobie Brothers have been delivering mind-blowing, roots-based, harmony-laden, guitar-driven rock and roll for over four decades, selling more than 48 million albums and winning four GRAMMY® Awards. Their latest studio album, Southbound, features new recordings of the band’s biggest hits, with country music’s biggest stars including Blake Shelton, Zac Brown Band, Brad Paisley and Toby Keith. Boasting one of the most loyal fan bases in music, the band continues to write and record new material and tour the world. Their No. 1 singles “Black Water” (1974) and “What a Fool Believes” (1979), both gold, lead a catalog of indelible songs that include “Listen To The Music,” “Jesus Is Just All Right,” “Rockin’ Down the Highway,” “Long Train Runnin’,” “China Grove,” “Take Me In Your Arms,” Takin’ it to the Streets,” “Minute by Minute,” “You Belong to Me,” “The Doctor” and more. In all, the Doobies have tallied up five top 10 singles and 16 top 40 hits. Beginning with their multi-million-selling sophomore collection Toulouse Street (1972), the Doobies have 3 multi-platinum, 7 platinum and 14 Gold albums. Their Best of the Doobies (1976) has sold more than 12 million copies – a rare “diamond record.”
Each band will perform individual sets, playing their biggest hits, and then both Chicago and The Doobie Brothers will join together for a thrilling grand finale encore, playing each other’s songs at the end of each of these summer shows. Chicago has sold more than 38 million albums in the U.S., including 18 platinum and 8 multi-platinum releases. That run includes 21 Top 10 hits. The Doobie Brothers, meanwhile, have sold more than 40 million worldwide, on their way to induction in the the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2004.   Chicago and the Doobie Brothers will combine for a final encore — in much the same way that Chicago did with Earth Wind and Fire during earlier combo tours.
