COLLECTIVE SOUL’s 25-year tradition of non-stop touring will continue throughout the rest of the year. The band will join forces with Better Than Ezra and special guest Tonic for the “Just Looking Around 2020” summer tour that will include a stop in Huber Heights, OH at Rose Music Center on Saturday, September 12th.
“Touring with Tonic and Better Than Ezra is a beautiful combination of music and friends,” says COLLECTIVE SOUL bassist Will Turpin. “Playing with BTE and Tonic always has the feeling of a fun musical family reunion,” continues guitarist Dean Roland. “I can’t wait for the tour. Emerson and Kevin will probably get sick of seeing me on the front row singing along. They’ll just have to deal with it though.”
“This tour is all about good times, great friends, and amazing nights of music,” Better Than Ezra singer Kevin Griffin declares. “We’re fired up to spend the summer with Collective Soul and Tonic. Put on your dancing shoes.”
“Collective Soul is more than just an amazing Rock band to us in the Tonic world,” proclaims Tonic singer Emerson Hart. “Yes, we have had some of our finest nights with them on stages around this country of ours through the many years on the road, but at the heart of it, they are family. Collective Soul, Better Than Ezra and Tonic is an unstoppable summer night of hits.”
