Third Eye Blind: Third Eye Blind embody the feel good alt-rock music of the '90s. Their hits including "Semi-Charmed Life" and "Never Let You Go", defined late '90s modern rock and catapulted the band to major success.

The San Francisco based alt-rock group was born out of the Bay Area rock scene along with other bands like Green Day. They released their first demo in 1993, however, it was with their second EP that they gained attention from record mogul Clive Davis who invited the band to perform a showcase for Arista in 1995. While they didn't secure a contract, Third Eye Blind managed to score the opening slot for rock supergroup Oasis at their San Francisco Civic Auditorium show in 1996. All of the industry buzz generated a bidding war with Elektra Records ultimately signing the band to a major label deal. Third Eye Blind released their self-titled debut in 1997 and were immediately successful. The lead-off single, "Semi-Charmed Life" was the first of several #1 Modern Rock Tracks from the album and also shot to #4 on the Hot 100.

The self-titled album released hit single after hit single. Third Eye Blind tour dates were added to the opening segment of U2's PopMart Tour and they gained an international following. The album was eventually certified six-times platinum by the RIAA and the singles "How's It Gonna Be" and "Jumper" ensured that the album spent nearly two years on the Billboard 200. They regrouped in 1999 to release their sophomore album Blue. After a slow start, the album gained traction with the second single "Never Let You Go", which became a top ten track. The Third Eye Blind concert schedule included a whirlwind international tour which kept them on the road for a couple of years.

Upon returning, they constructed a recording studio to produce their third album Out of the Vein. The album was released in 2003 and debuted at #12 on the Billboard 200 becoming their highest charting album.

In 2007, Third Eye Blind tour dates were booked in commemoration of the ten-year anniversary of their debut album. They performed at San Francisco's famed Filmore venue and cut a live DVD of the event. They released their fourth album Ursa Major on their own label, Mega Collider Records, in 2009 and forged a comeback. The album debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200, becoming their highest charting album and their first to reach the top ten.

In 2012, Stephan Jenkins stated that Third Eye Blind's fifth studio album would be their last. Since then, fans have been teased with hints at recording and possible singles, but no new music has been released. While some fans are chomping at the bit for a new album, it just means that they'll have even more opportunities to see Third Eye Blind live!

Jimmy Eat World: Jimmy Eat World emerged at the forefront of the alt-rock emo scene when their third album Bleed American hit store shelves in 2001. Since then, they have been at the top of the charts and the Jimmy Eat World concert schedule is nothing short of epic. Jimmy Eat World tour dates are scheduled nationally with the band promoting their most recent release Chase This Light.

Jimmy Eat World formed in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa, Arizona in 1993 when schoolmates Jim Adkins, Zach Lind, Tom Linton, and Mitch Porter had the brilliant idea of starting a band. Their early sound mirrored that of eighties New York punk but they soon developed an emo-core style as the genre was in its nascent. Jimmy Eat World tour dates were scheduled around the southwest and the band was eventually discovered by a scout for Capitol Records who signed the band. They released their debut Static Prevails to minimal commercial success but were embraced by crowds at their live shows.

They released their sophomore set Clarity in 1998 and were widely cited as bringing attention to emo as a legitimate genre. It featured the single "Lucky Denver Mint", which was used in the Drew Barrymore film Never Been Kissed. Jimmy Eat World broke out big with their third release Bleed American which they produced independently and distributed through Big Wheel Records. The band self-financed the album with funds they earned through touring and working day jobs. The album's single "The Middle" became an international rock and pop hit reaching #5 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album was certified platinum and Jimmy Eat World tour dates were scheduled on a lengthy Bleed America outing that lasted for two years.

They brought in alt-rock guru, Gil Norton, to produce their next album Futures which was released in 2004. The album featured the lead single "Pain" and the subsequent single "Work", both hits on the Modern Rock survey. Jimmy Eat World joined Taking Back Sunday on an extensive US tour before joining Green Day on their American Idiot outing. Jimmy Eat World returned to Arizona to record their sixth album Chase This Light which was released in 2007. They followed this up with their most recent album Invented in 2010 which featured the hit single "My New Theory", which hit #2 on the Modern Rock survey. Jimmy Eat World tour dates are booked internationally in support of this album, and they will be on the road throughout 2011. Additional JImmy Eat World concert dates are scheduled at major festivals such as Reading and Leeds Festival in the UK and Rock Werchter in Belgium.
