Third Eye Blind will perform a free, outdoor live cocert on Friday, March 30 at 8 PM as part of ther opening of Xfinity Live in South Philadelphia at the staudium complex. This will be prec by a series of free concerts by other bands throughout the day.
Admission to the concert is free and open to the public. This will be a non ticketed event.
Since 1997, San Francisco’s Third Eye Blind have recorded three best-selling albums and assembled one career retrospective. Led by Stephan Jenkins, 3EB won wide success during a tumultuous group of years when the major-label recording industry was finally losing its grip on an enterprise that for decades it had dominated with steely efficiency. Nothing could have made 3EB happier! 3EB, however, have experienced no comparable loss. Instead, they have gained artistic clarification -- and, surprisingly, a fan base larger than ever.
Participation in the older, untouchable realm of nervous star-making and could color a band’s identity. In the case of 3EB, it often blurred the perception of their brilliant musical creations. In recent years, those creations have recast the band among a current generation of fans.
3EB now write, tour, record, and communicate in a fluid new world where their music continues naturally to evolve. Their exchange with their audience is unfiltered.
The Third Eye Blind concert is the first in a series of year-round, regular entertainment featuring local, regional and national recording acts at XFINITY Live! Philadelphia.
The live music continues on Saturday, March 31, when regional and local bands will take the stage to continue the Grand Opening events.
