Third Eye Blind's Summer Gods Tour 2024 Comes to SPAC

Having emerged from the late-90s post-grunge scene, Third Eye Blind is known for their brighter take on grunge sounds, often borrowing themes from classic rock and pop chords. The band, which debuted their single 'Semi-Charmed Life' in 1997 to critical acclaim, quickly rose to fame and eventually went on to win the 1997 Billboard Music Award for Best Modern Rock Track. Building on their impactful initial success, Third Eye Blind released a number of singles following 1997's 'Semi-Charmed Life,' three of which reached the Top 10 charts. They also toured with bands such as U2 and Oasis before their Bonfire Tour across the US in 1998 and releasing their second album, Blue, in 1999.


In more recent years, the band has toured and performed at festivals such as Bonnaroo in Tennessee, Life is Beautiful in Las Vegas, Reading Festival in the United Kingdom, and In the Mix in the Philippines. Third Eye Blind live performances are noted as impressive for their meticulous use of lighting to set the mood for each individual song and for their high-energy interaction with audiences. Their Blessed by the Gods tour in 2017 received positive reviews for an impressive setlist that perfectly mixed songs from each era of their career.

Originally from San Francisco, Third Eye Blind is headed by singer Stephan Jenkins. Although seeming to come out of an overnight success, Jenkins worked for years on the songs before he even met his future bandmates and their first self-titled album in 1997. Bandmate Arion Salazar noted that he was playing with Stephan in 1993 and opened for the Counting Crows in April of 1994 before Kevin joined and the crew began producing actual demos. The band received its name from Jenkins, who wanted to reference the metaphysical concept of a mind's eye. Other members have included guitarist Kevin Cadogan and former Counting Crows drummer Brad Hargreaves, each contributing to the overall success of the post-grunge group.

The album Third Eye Blind went six times platinum while the album Blue went single platinum in the United States. Songs such as "Jumper" and "How's It Going to Be" reaching the Top 10 of the US Billboard Hot 100. In total, the band has sold around 12 million records worldwide.
