“Three decades as a band is quite the reason for celebration. I’m almost 60 years old. I’ve got MS. I’ve been through the wringer, but I’m still here. The music’s still here. EVERCLEAR is still here. EVERCLEAR is my band; it always has been. Its faces have changed, but the music stays the same. We’ve got a great band now, we’re tight as hell, we all love and respect each other, and we just go out and put on the best show we can every night. I’m blessed that I get to do this for a living and am truly grateful for my life.

We’re gonna do a couple of songs off ‘World Of Noise’ for sure, and maybe even some hidden gems from back in the day that were B-sides. And, of course, we’ll still play all the hits and fan favorites. It’s going to be a really fun summer!”
