JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Bold Events and Live Nation today announced that two of music’s most beloved bands and biggest hit makers are joining up to play Daily’s Place this summer.

“No matter what I will ever do, nothing feels like home as much as playing these songs with these guys and it never will,” said Matchbox Twenty lead singer-songwriter ROB THOMAS. “And I can’t wait to spend another summer out there on the road with the Crows.” Thomas previously teamed with Counting Crows for a hugely successful 2016 summer co-headline tour.
“To be honest, we took a vote after last year and decided to spend every summer with Rob from now on,” says Counting Crows’ ADAM DURITZ. “Can. Not. Wait.”
