Wednesday Closing Reception, Dinner and Matchbox Twenty in Concert

Reception from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. | Dinner from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. | Concert 8:30 p.m.

Matchbox Twenty is Kyle Cook, Paul Doucette, Rob Thomas, and Brian Yale. The group has sold over 40 million records worldwide, and earned multiple chart-topping singles, countless accolades, including five GRAMMY® nominations, four American Music Award nods, and the 2004 People's Choice Award for "Favorite Musical Group."

Fueled by such classic songs as “Real World,” “Back 2 Good” and the No. 1 smash hits “Push” and “3AM,” 1996’s Diamond-certified Yourself or Someone Like You proved a worldwide sensation and instantly established Matchbox Twenty as global superstars. 2000 saw the band release the four-times Platinum Mad Season, containing the No. 1 singles “Bent” and “If You’re Gone.”  Matchbox’s third release, More Than You Think You Are, also was certified Platinum and featured the No. 1 hit, “Unwell.” 2007’s greatest hits compilation album with six new songs, “Exile On Mainstream” yielded yet another No. 1 track, “How Far We’ve Come,” while the band’s most recent album, 2012’s “North,” exploded into the top position on the Billboard 200 release – Matchbox Twenty’s first-ever chart-topper and No. 1 debut.

2022 has the band back in the studio working on their highly anticipated sixth studio album. They will embark on a 54-date rescheduled tour beginning May 2023. The tour is the band’s first since 2017, when they reunited for the "A Brief History of Everything" tour to mark the 20th anniversary of their RIAA Diamond-certified debut album Yourself or Someone Like You.

Dinner seating will be based upon your registered state and assignments will be found in your convention registration packet.
