Multi award-winning singer-songwriter Rob Thomas will return to Australia for a massive national tour later this year, including Rochford Wines on Saturday 9 November.

Currently in Australia to promote his brand new album Chip Tooth Smile, the successful solo artist and front man for Matchbox Twenty makes a welcome return to Australia for three performances in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.

Fans can expect a dynamic show of huge hits and favourites plucked from Thomas’ 30 plus year career, as well as a tasting of new tracks lifted from Chip Tooth Smile.

Tickets for the ‘A Day On The Green’ concerts will go on sale on Wednesday May 8 at 12pm from Ticketmaster.

Among his numerous hits are solo classics like Lonely No More, This Is How A Heart Breaks, Her Diamonds, Streetcorner Symphony, Little Wonders and Matchbox Twenty favourites Push, 3AM, If You’re Gone, Unwell, How Far We’ve Come and Bent, as well as Smooth, his worldwide smash hit Santana collaboration.

Smooth celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and last year was ranked as the second most successful song of all time on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

In 2017, the Grammy award-winning hit was named by APRA as the second-most played song on Australian radio in the last 25 years.

Rob Thomas is one of the most distinctive artists of any era – a gifted vocalist, spell-binding performer and an acclaimed songwriter known worldwide as the lead singer and primary composer with Matchbox Twenty, as well as for his multi-platinum solo work and chart-topping collaborations.

As a songwriter and collaborator, Thomas has racked up global sales of more than 80 million records.

Chip Tooth Smile is Thomas’ fourth solo album, featuring the new single I Love It.

This is his 10th Australian tour, and to date he has sold more than half a million tickets here.

His ongoing love affair with Australian audiences is set to continue this November with his very welcome return down under.
