I loved Collective Soul! They were fantastic! My husband and I really enjoyed Blues Traveller too. We were pleasantly surprised since we didn't know very much about... continued

Great concert, great seats, and all three bands were fantastic. I think the Greek Theater has become my favorite LA venue.

Description

Live has been together for nearly 22 years and through that journey, has built an impressive résumé that includes eight full-length albums, total CD sales exceeding 20 million, a huge international fan base and extensive touring all over the world. Live has been one of the most successful and enduring alternative rock bands of the 1990s and 2000s. Their sophomore album, Throwing Copper (a 1994 release) was a huge success and was the only album in Billboard history to stay on the charts for 52 weeks before reaching #1. Selling more than 12 million copies worldwide, Throwing Copper went down in history as one of the most definitive alternative rock recordings of that decade that boasted the MTV smashes “All Over You,” “Selling the Drama,” “Lightning Crashes” and “I Alone.”

Collective Soul’s debut, Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid, was picked up by Atlantic Records in 1994, and the single “Shine” became a breakthrough hit, pushing the album to platinum status. With 21 tracks debuting on the Billboard chart and seven #1 singles (“Shine,” “December,” “The World I Know,” “Where The River Flows,” “Precious Declaration,” “Listen,” and “Heavy”), Collective Soul have proven themselves as one of rock’s greatest acts.

Blues Traveler formed in New York City twenty years ago. With the release of Four (1994) Blues Traveler spawned one of the biggest hits of the 1990s – the Grammy-winning “Run-Around” – which spent nearly a year on the charts. The next hit single from Four, “Hook,” drove the album to sell over 5 million copies. Over the course of their career, the band has released eight studio albums, six of which have been certified either gold or platinum, and sold over 10 million units worldwide.
