Matchbox 20 is no stranger to the AMP, they performed in 2017 and was one of the top three concerts in terms of ticket sales for the AMP that year. The band is known for their hit songs Unwell, If You’re Gone, and 3 AM. This is their first tour since 2017, when they reunited for the “A Brief History of Everything” tour to mark the 20th anniversary of their RIAA Diamond-certified debut album Yourself or Someone Like You.

Rob Thomas said, “I’m proud to be a part of the greatest pop rock band in the world and I can’t wait to play with them again. Stepping on stage with Matchbox and sharing those songs with the fans feels as natural as breathing to me at this point.”

The Wallflowers are known for their hit One Headlight, which took the airwaves by storm at the turn of the century.
