ST. PETERSBURG – It has been 20 years since alternative rockers Collective Soul broke into the mainstream with “Shine,” followed a few years later by massive hits “December,” “The World I Know” and “Where the River Flows.”
The band will perform a concert at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg on March 2, the venue announced Monday.
Tickets, ranging from $35.50 to $65.50 go on sale Nov. 22 at noon through TheMahaffey.com or by calling (727) 893-7832.
Hailing from Atlanta, Ga., Collective Soul's popularity grew in the early '90s when a collection of vocalist Ed Roland's demos began circulating on the college underground circuit. When their studio album “Hints, Allegations and Things Left Unsaid” was released in 1993 it sold over two million copies. Their follow-up, “Collective Soul,” went triple platinum and spent 76 weeks in the Billboard 200.
The band has continued to record and put out music on their own label, El Music Group, and most recently released an album titled “Collective Soul” in 2009. In 2008, their single “Tremble for My Beloved” was featured in the film “Twilight.”
Ed Kowalczyk, former lead singer of the band Live, will open the show.
