The 2013 tour celebrates Matchbox Twenty’s blockbuster album, NORTH, which exploded into the number one position on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 after its first week in release earlier this year. Fueled by critical acclaim – as well as the hit singles, “She’s So Mean” and “Overjoyed” – the album’s unprecedented success marked the band’s first-ever chart-topper and number one debut. NORTH is the band’s fourth full-length studio recording and first all-new album in a decade. The result of their labors stands among the band’s finest, with songs like “Put Your Hands Up” and the top 10 sensation, “She’s So Mean.”
