“Blues Traveler – 30 Years Of Four Tour” To Hit First Avenue

The Iconic Band Will Perform the Deeper Cuts from the Six-Time Platinum Record as well as Greatest Hits

 

Blues Traveler has announced that they will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of their seminal, six-time platinum album four with a cross-country tour this fall. “Blues Traveler – 30 Years Of Four Tour” will hit First Avenue September 17. 

Regarded as the album that catapulted Blues Traveler into the mainstream, four was the band’s fourth and most commercially successful release to date. The record peaked at #8 on the Billboard 200 charts and generated two Top 40 hits including “Run-Around” and “Hook,” which charted at #8 and #23 respectively on the Billboard Hot 100. “Run-Around” also earned the band their first Grammy® Award in 1996 for “Best Rock Vocal Performance By A Duo Or Group” and set a record upon its release as the longest-charting radio single in Billboard history.

Perhaps more impressive than its accolades, though, is the indelible impression that four made on the Americana music landscape as a whole. Weaving a unique blend of blues, rock, folk, and roots with catchy choruses and bold rhythms that could only be defined as transformative, the record was hailed as one of the most genre-defining albums of its time. It is also one of the most enduring.
