ROB THOMAS SETS BUSY SPRING AND SUMMER‏

Emblem/Atlantic recording artist Rob Thomas has announced an array of spring and summer activity highlighted by a major North American tour and the release of a new single “Pieces”. The dates – which see the multiple-GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter co-headlining alongside Counting Crows – begin July 22nd at West Palm Beach’s Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre and then travels through late September (see attached itinerary). Pre-sale tickets will be available to members of Thomas’ official fan club beginning on Tuesday, April 12th; Citi pre-sale kicks off April 13th, Live Nation, Ticketmaster, local radio and venue pre-sales on April 14th and public on sale is April 15th. For complete details and ticket information, please see www.robthomasmusic.com/events.

The upcoming summer tour celebrates Thomas’ 3rd solo album, the internationally acclaimed “THE GREAT UNKNOWN.” Highlighted by the hitsingle “Hold On Forever,” as well as the soon to be released “Pieces”, the album had a top 10 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its release last year. Produced by a remarkable roster of studio all-stars including longtime collaborator Matt Serletic, Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé), Ricky Reed (Jessie J, Jason Derulo, twenty one pilots), and Shep Goodman & Aaron Accetta (American Authors), “THE GREAT UNKNOWN” is available now in stores and at all digital retailers and streaming services.

“THE GREAT UNKNOWN” earned considerable critical acclaim upon its arrival, with Rolling Stone hailing Thomas as “the same consummate pop-rock craftsman who has been making it all sound so smooth for years…Thomas piles on the hooks right from the opener.”

In other news, Thomas – who recently returned from a sold out tour of Australia – will induct iconic jazz-pop heroes Chicago at the upcoming 31st Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, set for Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Friday, April 8th. HBO will film the event for later broadcast (check local listings).

Thomas will also be seen on the small screen via two upcoming TV appearances, beginning with a long awaited spot on The CW’s smash series, iZombie, co-created by his famous namesake, writer/director Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars, Cupid). The appearance will air as part of the iZombie season finale, set for Tuesday, April 12th (check local listings).

Next up will be a very special episode of CMT Crossroads pairing Thomas with singer/songwriter Charles Kelley (of multiple GRAMMY® Award-winning trio, Lady Antebellum). CMT Crossroads will premiere this July.

April will also see Thomas honored with The Trevor Project’s annual Ally Award, celebrating his longtime advocacy on behalf of LGBTQ young people and same-sex marriage. The award will be presented April 15th at New York City’s Metropolitan West following an intimate live performance at “A Night Out For Trevor,” the annual “Spring Fling” fundraiser hosted by the volunteer community, TrevorNextGen.
