Everclear, Soul Asylum, Eve 6 to play free concert in St. Pete


Published:

If you’re in the mood to rock out like Bill Clinton was still the president and Seinfeld was still on prime time, you’re in luck — and this is probably a lot cheaper than a time machine.

Everclear, Soul Asylum, Eve 6 and Spacehog are bringing their free Summerland tour to St. Petersburg. The lineup of 90s-era, alt-rockers will play Vinoy Park on June 14, from 2 to 9 p.m.

Tickets are required, but they’re completely free by visiting the Summerland Tour website. Reserved VIP seats at the front of the stage are $29.75.

The ‘90s nostalgia tour was formed by Everclear front man Art Alexakis in 2012, bringing together a lineup that has sold millions of albums and recorded dozens of hit singles between them.

Many of those songs, such as “Father of Mine” and “Santa Monica” (Everclear), “Runaway Train” (Soul Asylum), “Inside Out” (Eve 6) and “In the Meantime” (Spacehog) have remained radio staples for more than a decade.

“This tour just seems to get better and better every year. Both the bands and the fans are starting to connect with the name Summerland. It seems like it’s becoming synonymous with ‘90’s alternative rock,” Alexakis said in a statement.

The 30-date tour kicks off June 13 in Pompano Beach and includes a June 15 stop in Ocala at the race track owned by Tampa radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge.
