Rob Thomas Tickets for Sale
While women have been able to break with their groups and launch successful solo careers with ease (at least relative to how difficult it is to become a success in the music industry), few male singers have been able to make the transition. Rob Thomas is one of those few male performers that has been able to get his fans as excited about Rob Thomas tickets as they are about Matchbox Twenty tickets. In fact, he is the only male recording artist from the rock or pop genre that has debuted number one on the Billboard charts with a solo effort.
Now, the Billboard Top 200 has only been active for 50 years, but the feat remains impressive. Rob Thomas' debut solo album …Something to Be (2005) ended up earning enough critical and fan praise to drive record sales so that the performer had a platinum certified record under his belt. The album owes much of that success to the single Lonely No More, extensive commercial support from the television network ABC, and Thomas' own career practices.
He is not only the lead singer for Matchbox Twenty, but also the principal songwriter. As the group's peaked and inevitably began to wane (it is hard to go up after a diamond certified album) he began to search for opportunities as an artist outside of the band. Rob Thomas famously worked with Carlos Santana, co-writing songs from the Grammy Award-winning album Supernatural. He has also worked with performers like Willie Nelson, Mick Jagger, Marc Anthony, and Taylor Hicks.
Still, the songwriter that has been celebrated by the Songwriter Hall of Fame is a performer at heart. Rob Thomas tickets have been available for just about any time Matchbox Twenty is not touring or recording in the studio. Thomas has performed live incessantly as he has tried to solidify his place as a solo artist. These shows have included a set at the Live 8 concert in Philadelphia on July 2, 2005; a set at the MTV Katrina Relief Concert on September 10, 2005; and a solo tour in the fall of 2005.
Rob Thomas has since toured with Jewel and Toby Lightman to promote his first debut album and worked on a number of movie soundtracks and songs for television promotions. He wrote and recorded Streetcorner Symphony for ABC to promote the networks Thursday night lineup, wrote and recorded Little Wonders for the Meet the Robinsons soundtrack, and is working with Miley Cyrus on the soundtrack for her new movie The Last Song.
He seems to be a popular person in the music industry. His work with Santana has been praised and now he is also set to work on a collaborative effort with Rivers Cuomo from Weezer. Rob Thomas and Cuomo are apparently recording a song with a strong reggae feel for Weezer's eighth album. All this collaboration has not deterred the singer-songwriter from his own efforts.
Thomas released his second solo album, Cradlesong, on June 30, 2009. The fans did not forget the singer-songwriter, which is evident by the number three peak on the Billboard charts for the album. The single Her Diamonds has topped the U.S. Adult Top 40 Tracks charts and reached number five on the U.S. Adult Contemporary charts. An extensive promotional tour is sure to follow the release.
