Art Alexakis, the charismatic frontman of the multi-platinum rock band Everclear, has announced an intimate, collaborative acoustic tour for May-June 2019. Art has invited three of his friends to join him on stage each night – fellow platinum artists Chris Collingwood (Fountains of Wayne), Max Collins (Eve 6) and John Wozniak (Marcy Playground). The Songs and Stories tour will deliver a one-of-a kind opportunity for each frontman to perform stripped down versions of their band’s hits, deep tracks, and new songs – and the stories behind all of them. The four men, collectively performing together for the very first time, will share the stage on multiple occasions during the show. The 2+ hour performance, delivered in an intimate, seated setting, will be capped off by an interactive encore, allowing fans a unique opportunity for Q&A, special requests, and ‘come what may’ banter. Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 15th.

On the lineup and upcoming tour, Alexakis shares: “I have been a huge fan of each of these artists for so long. Getting to showcase their singing and songwriting abilities in this way is going to be so special for all of us. These shows will still deliver a rock and roll energy, but in a way that our fans have never experienced. We can’t wait to have the opportunity to interact with our fans even more on this tour.”

The announcement of this tour coincides with the news that Art Alexakis will be releasing his first solo album. Due Spring 2019, the yet-to-be-named album will be distributed via The End Records.

In an effort to address a critical charitable need, Art Alexakis will be donating $1 per ticket sold at each show to Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, an organization that provides financial assistance to career musicians, venue workers, production staff, crew members, and their families suffering from injury, illness or disability. Funds raised from the tour will pay for medical procedures, doctor visits, prescriptions, and vital living expenses.

Everclear’s sound has consistently reflected the rock, post-punk, and singer/songwriter influences of frontman Alexakis, including acts like X, the Replacements, the Pixies, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and Elvis Costello. The band found success with their first three albums on Capitol Records, Sparkle and Fade, So Much for the Afterglow, and Songs from an American Movie Vol. One: Learning How to Smile, which were all certified platinum in sales.

    It’s been a rough few weeks for my family. Some live music would soothe the soul.

    My high school buddy is having his bachelor party this Thursday. He is getting married Saturday. We would love to come see the show. We were in high school in the 90’s and these are some of our favorite artists.

    This is the music of my youth, heart, and soul! Hearing these stories would mean so much, but times being what they are, I could never afford it.
