Third Eye Blind Tickets for Sale

One of the leaders in the slew of modern bands releasing lyrically-driven, post-Nirvana rock that incorporates a variety of styles to create one of their own. Third Eye Blind's combination of rock guitars, Beatles harmonies and emotionally charged vocals has been scoring hits since they burst on the scene in 1997 with 'Semi-Charmed Life.' They fall in the same category as Foo Fighters and Everclear, with smart, post-grunge pop that appeals to adult audiences as well as college-aged kids. Since the 1990s, their material has shown off a more muscle-bound unit than before.

Based in the Bay Area of San Francisco, California, USA, contemporary rock band Third Eye Blind was formed in the early 90s by songwriter Stephan Jenkins (b. 27 September 1963, Oakland, California, USA; vocals/guitar, ex-Puck And Natty), with Adrian Burley (drums) and Jason Slater (bass). Personnel changes left Jenkins as the only original member, with Arion Salazar (b. 9 August 1970, Oakland, California, USA; bass, ex-Fungo Mungo), Kevin Cadogan (b. 14 August 1970; guitar) and Tony Fredianelli (b. 2 April 1970; guitar) completing another early line-up. Fredianelli left in 1994 and a stable line-up was eventually reached when Jenkins, Salazar and Cadogan were joined by Brad Hargreaves (b. 30 July 1971; drums) in 1995. Said to be influenced equally by the Geto Boys and Joy Division, they began to attract a following through a series of high-profile performances, including a support slot to Oasis in San Francisco, before they were signed. They also took over the headliners' billing when Tim Booth of James was forced to cancel a series of concerts because of illness. Their first single, 'Semi-Charmed Life', duly reached number 1 on Billboard's Modern Rock chart, and number 4 on the Hot 100 singles chart. It was a typical effort, in that, beneath the slick-surface pop sound, the lyrics portrayed 'a storm brewing'. Their self-titled debut album, produced by Jenkins and Eric Valentine, reached the US Hot 100 following its release in April 1997, peaking at number 25 the following March. The band enjoyed further mainstream success when 'How's It Going To Be' reached US number 9 in February 1998, and 'Jumper' climbed to number 5 the following January. Blue failed to capture the imagination of the public, and after initial strong sales quickly faded from view. Cadogan was fired from the band in January 2000, and was replaced by touring guitarist and original member Tony Fredianelli. The now stable quartet of Fredianelli, Jenkins, Salazar and Hargreaves recorded Out Of The Vein in 2003.

Third Eye Blinds latest album is Ursa Major. The album is the first in six years for the group and has been expected since the middle of 2007. The new studio album has been released as of August 17, 2009, with the single Don't Believe a Word hitting the radio waves on June 8th. Ursa Major has received good reviews, noting the group's ability to write a big, pop rock song, though the group has shied away from politics this time. So, Third Eye Blind has again successfully made an album that is sure to hook its fans with its catchy lyrics and guitar riffs.

The band is not done though. The group has had six years to release a new album and now they seem to be in a hurry to make up for lost recording time. Yes, Third Eye Blind is scheduled to release a second album that features what they call B-side songs. This album is going to be fittingly called Ursa Minor. It will be interesting to hear if the group is willing to explore their sound a little bit and perhaps try their hand at more modern rock, instead of producing (producing well, though) the latest 1990s alternative rock revamp.

Third Eye Blind has been touring, as always, this summer, hitting big festivals and even having a few Third Eye Blind tickets for some headlining shows. With the release of a new album they are going to embark on a tour that extends beyond the nice summer months into the fall. More performance dates are being released as fans are wondering if their favorite alt rock group from the last decade will be coming to a town near them.
