Cleveland, Ohio – In honor of Art Alexakis bringing both his Summerland Tour and Everclear to town last week ,we decided to list why the Summerland Tour is the best value for your money.
Nostalgia – The tour brings the best of 1990s’s artists together in a intimate setting where every ticket is the best seat in the house ( even if you are standing ) Where else can you get top artists playing radio hits and hidden gems for your delight . I honestly have never seen either Local H or Marcy Playground but damn I am glad i was at this show .
Value – Three bands, many hits , one low price . To be honest at three times the cost it still would be a great value , they even kept the band merch at reasonable prices so no over priced $ 75 shirt . The merch lines were long but well worth it .
Number Three –
A Fans Band – Both Local H and Marcy Playground came out after their sets to meet the fans and pose for pictures and I know Everclear did meet some the fans before their set as well. One of the things the bands know is being accessible to the fans is how to keep the fans happy and coming back tour after tour besides I am sure it is nice see familiar faces and new one .
The Music- It is what started us all and the most important reason for a show . Sex and Candy by Marcy Playground along with several other hits and not to forget Local H as well .Bound For The Floor was one of my favorite songs and to get that sound out of a two piece band is beyond imagination .
Number Five –
Art Alexakis -The man behind the music, the ringleader, the MC and all around great guy . The band Everclear and the music they created really has touched me over the years and Art in particular means a lot to me. We share a bond over the song ” Father of Mine ” so if a kid from the projects can become a success without a father in the music industry so can a kid from the projects without a father in the media industry so my hats of to Art .
There is a little under a week left on the tour but to see if a date is near you please check out the official website at http://www.summerlandtour.net
