The venue was great for the incredible view, but the sound sucked. It even went out towards the end of the show. The band just kept playing. The speakers blew I guess and it was loud and staticy for 30 seconds of about 3 seperate songs. It sounded...continued

Long-standing live powerhouse O.A.R.‘s summer tour includes stops at Red Rocks Amphitheatre and the Allman Brothers Band’s first-ever Peach Tree Music Festival, featuring Zac Brown Band, Dark Star Orchestra, and The Wailers. The tour follows the release of King, the widely-praised seventh studio album from “a self-assured band at the height of its creative powers” (M Magazine).  

O.A.R.‘s whirlwind summer also includes a performance at Cincinnati’s Bunbury Music Festival, featuring Weezer, Death Cab For Cutie, and Jane’s Addiction. The tour comes on the heels of their intimate “Extended Stay” run, which was capped off by a five-night stand at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom and a surprise guest appearance from Wyclef Jean and Cris Cab. The band recently performed their latest single “Gotta Be Wrong Sometimes” on The Rachael Ray Show and appeared on American Public Television’s Front Row Center.
