Thomas is currently in the studio putting finishing touches on his long awaited third solo album, his first in more than six years. The new album – which follows 2009’s acclaimed CRADLESONG – is slated for release in late summer.

Rob Thomas is one of the most distinctive artists of this or any other era – a gifted vocalist, spellbinding performer and accomplished songwriter known worldwide as lead singer and primary composer with Matchbox Twenty as well as for his multi-platinum certified solo work and chart-topping collaborations with other artists. Among his countless hits are solo classics like “Lonely No More,” “This Is How A Heart Breaks” and “Streetcorner Symphony,” Matchbox Twenty favorites including “Push,” “3AM,” “If You’re Gone” and “Bent” and of course  “Smooth,” his 3x RIAA platinum certified worldwide hit collaboration with Santana. Thomas earned three GRAMMY® Awards for his role as co-writer and vocalist on “Smooth,” which topped Billboard’s Hot 100 for an astounding 12 consecutive weeks and spent 58 total weeks on the chart, the #1 song in Billboard’s Top Hot 100 Rock Songs chart history and #2 “Hot 100” song of all time. The #1, multi-platinum …SOMETHING TO BE, made history as the first album by a male artist from a Rock or Pop group to debut at #1 on The Billboard 200 since the chart was launched.

In 2004, Thomas was the first artist to be honored with the Songwriters Hall of Fame’s prestigious Hal David Starlight Award, created to recognize a composer in the early years of his or her career that has already made a lasting impact.  He has won numerous BMI and ASCAP Awards, and twice earned the “Songwriter of the Year” crown from both Billboard and BMI. Overall, Thomas has contributed to sales of more than 80 million records.

Thomas’ most recent solo album, 2009’s CRADLESONG, marked still another milestone, generating two #1 singles in “Her Diamonds” and “Someday.”  Rob made Billboard chart history once again as the only male artist with multiple #1 hits at Adult Top 40.  With this coronation, Thomas tied Pink with the most #1′s by a solo artist in the chart’s history.

In 2012, Matchbox Twenty returned with their first all-new album in a decade, NORTH. Fueled by the hit singles, “She’s So Mean,”  “Overjoyed” and “Our Song,” NORTH proved a landmark for the band, their first ever #1 debut and Billboard 200 chart-topper.

A charismatic, engaging and indefatigable live performer, Thomas has spent much of the past two decades on the road, fronting massive world treks with Matchbox Twenty and on his own as well as a series of intimate acoustic tours. Thomas is also a dedicated philanthropist, establishing The Sidewalk Angels Foundation with his wife Marisol Thomas in 2003. Dedicated to providing critically needed funds and support to grassroots groups across the country, the New York-based not-for-profit organization is the primary supporter and sponsor of a number of no-kill animal shelters and animal rescues. Additionally, The Sidewalk Angels Foundation also supports a myriad of other causes, from childhood health and wellness to the fight against homelessness, reflecting the passion of its co-founders to

fight for the rights and fair treatment of those with no voice. For additional information on The Sidewalk Angels Foundation, please visit sidewalkangelsfoundation.org.

Santana To Bring Corazón Tour To Mohegan Sun Arena

Concert set for August 19th; Tickets on sale this Friday at 10:00am

UNCASVILLE, CT (February 23, 2015) – Santana is touring his latest studio album, Corazón, and Mohegan Sun Arena is slated to once again host the legendary guitarist in concert beginning at 7:30pm on Wednesday, August 19th.

Tickets are $59.50 and $39.50 and go on sale Friday, February 27th through Ticketmaster at 10:00am.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com; call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Saturday, February 28th, subject to availability.

For forty years and as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won ten GRAMMY ® Awards and three Latin GRAMMY ® Awards.  He won a record-tying nine GRAMMYs for a single project for 1999’s Supernatural (including “Album of the Year” and “Record of the Year” for “Smooth”) as well as three Latin GRAMMYs. He has also received the Billboard Century Award (1996), was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1998), received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ “Lifetime Achievement” honor (2009) and was the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors Award (2013). Among many other honors, Carlos Santana has been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” And, with the 2014 release of Corazón, Santana surpassed the Rolling Stones and along with Barbara Streisand, is one of only two music acts in Billboard history to score at least one Top Ten album for six consecutive decades from the 1960s on. Earlier this year, Santana released his first ever Latin Music album entitled Corazón on RCA/Sony Latin Iberia, featuring superstar collaborative performances by Latin music’s finest. The album is certified U.S. Latin double platinum and was the top selling Latin music album in the United States for six consecutive weeks. Santana is currently headlining a multi-year residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. This fall, Carlos Santana will release his memoir The Universal Tone: Bringing My Story to Light. It’s a profoundly inspiring tale of spiritual commitment and musical fearlessness that does not balk at finding the humor in the world of high-flying fame, nor at speaking plainly of Santana’s personal revelations, and the divine and infinite possibility he sees in each person he meets.
