The recently reunited original line-up of LIVE continue to add festival appearances for their 2017 worldwide tour including Arroyo Seco, BottleRock, Rock On The Range, MMBBQ Festival and PinkPop (The Netherlands), with more to be announced soon. Known as one of the most potent alternative rock acts and concert attractions with their powerful musical dynamics, vocal fervor and questing lyrics LIVE will continue to announce tour dates and are currently writing and recording new music TBA. The band performed for the first time together on New Year’s Eve 2016–an invite-only surprise show at the Valencia Ballroom in their native York, PA—which was broadcast live on Facebook.
Speaking to the excitement of their upcoming festival performances, Ed Kowalczyk tells Consequence of Sound: “There’s a lot more festivals in general, and we’re on way cooler festivals with these amazing bands than we were 20 years ago. I don’t know what flipped there, but that’s so inspiring, because we look at these lineups and we’re playing with some of these artists that I’ve never gotten a chance to see, and they’re people that I really want to play with and check out.”
2017 marks the 25th anniversary of their debut album Mental Jewelry (released December 31, 1991). The multi-platinum band from Pennsylvania have sold over 22 million albums worldwide and earned two number one albums (Throwing Copper, Secret Samadhi). Their catalog is filled with such gems as “Lightning Crashes,” “I Alone,” “All Over You” and “Lakini’s Juice,” which live on today as classics at rock radio.
