EVERCLEAR 30TH ANNIVERSARY with FASTBALL & THE NIXONS

Everclear will celebrate its 30th anniversary on the road. “Three decades as a band is quite a reason to celebrate,” exclaims Alexakis. “I am almost 60 years old. I have MS. I went through the ringer, but I’m still here. The music is still there. Everclear is still there. Everclear is my band; it always has been. His faces have changed, but the music remains the same. We’ve got a great group now, we’re really close, we all love and respect each other, and we go out and put on the best show we can every night. I am blessed to be able to do this for a living and I am truly grateful for my life. The tour is very 90s as Fastball and The Nixons will be joining them – all dates are here.
