Pechanga Resort and Casino Theater invites you for a night with Multiple Grammy winning Emblem/Atlantic recording artist Rob Thomas. In a recent press release, Rob Thomas has announced plans for a month-long North American special headline run kicking off  in Temecula, California at the Pechanga Resort and Casino Theater Wednesday, April 2, 2014

Tickets go on sale on the Pechanga Entertainment web site Friday, January 24, 2014 at 3 p.m. Pacific Time.

“This offers a unique opportunity to catch the superstar performing in a more up close and personal setting, playing a career-spanning set.” The press release said. Rob Thomas remains one of the most distinctive vocalists and accomplished songwriters in contemporary music, garnering a string of accolades–both for his work as lead singer and primary composer with Matchbox Twenty as well as for his solo work and collaborations with other artists. 

In 2004, the Songwriters Hall of Fame presented Thomas with its first ever “Starlight Award” – created to recognize a songwriter in the early years of his or her career that has already made a lasting impact.  He has won numerous BMI and ASCAP Awards, and has earned the Songwriter of the Year crown from both Billboard and BMI, two years in a row.

Thomas is best known for his chart-topping hits such as “Lonely No More” and “This is How a Heart Breaks” and Matchbox Twenty hits like “Push,” “3AM,” “If You’re Gone,” and “Bent.”  Thomas also earned three Grammy Awards for “Smooth,” his smash collaboration with Santana.  Thomas wrote and sang the song, which currently ranks first on Billboard’s “Top Hot 100 Rock Songs” chart and second on the magazine’s “Hot 100 All-Time Top Songs.”  Thomas last solo album, Cradlesong, generated even more number one hits, including “Someday” and “Her Diamonds.”  Overall, Thomas has contributed to sales of more than 80 million records.

Rob Thomas and his Matchbox Twenty band mates recently finished up their hugely successful sold-out world tour in support of their #1 selling album “NORTH.”  Fueled by critical acclaim – as well as the hit singles, “She’s So Mean,”  “Overjoyed” and “Our Song”– the album’s unprecedented success marked the band’s first-ever chart-topper and #1 debut. Rob is currently at work on his third solo album.

Additionally, Thomas’ show on April 5th at Indio, CA’s Fantasy Springs Resort will benefit Sidewalk Angels Foundation, the non-profit organization founded by Rob and his wife Marisol Thomas. This show follows Rob’s three sold-out night’s at Atlantic’s City Borgata Casino January 17, 18, and 19, where he returned for the 3rd consecutive year to benefit Sidewalk Angels.  Concerts will continue to go on-sale throughout the month of January, so please check back at www.robthomasmusic.com for further pre-sale and on-sale information.
