5th Annual Summerland Tour Lineup and Dates Announced

Set to Feature Sugar Ray, Everclear, Lit & Sponge

New York, NY – April 11, 2016 – The 5th annual Summerland Tour is proud to announce that Sugar Ray, Everclear, Lit and Sponge will perform at each date of this year’s acclaimed ‘90s alternative music tour. The Summerland Tour, previously heralded by Rolling Stone as one of the "10 Hottest Summer Package Tours", kicks off on July 8th in Louisville, KY, and will include more than 25 dates throughout the US before wrapping on August 21st in San Antonio, TX. For more information, please visit: http://summerlandtour.net/.

Myrtle Beach Speedway Amphitheater is looking forward to adding the Summerland Tour to its great list of performers for the 2016 season. On July 15, 2016 Summerland Tour will be an amazing summer concert at our out door venue. We are excited to add Summerland Tour to the list of 2016 concerts at Myrtle Beach Speedway Amphitheater” says Steve Zacharias, General Manager of Myrtle Beach Speedway.

Formed in 2012 by Art Alexakis, lead guitarist and vocalist of Everclear, the Summerland Tour has featured notable nostalgic alternative rock bands such as Soul Asylum, Eve 6, Space Hog, Gin Blossoms, Marcy Playground, Live, Fuel, American HiFi, The Toadies and Filter. Tickets for Summerland Tour 2016 are set to go on sale Friday, April 15th.

With tremendous excitement towards this year’s Summerland Tour, Alexakis explains, "This is the kind of line up I've dreamed of when I started the Summerland Tour. We kicked it off with Sugar Ray for the first year, so it feels great to have band join us for the 5th Anniversary. We love Lit & Sponge and cannot wait to share the stage with them. This lineup is stacked and this summer is going to be an adventure.”

Sugar Ray (http://sugarray.com/)

Sugar Ray was groundbreaking from the get-go, including among their ranks a real live DJ – incredibly, unheard of in a rock band at that time. Kicking off with 1995’s “LEMONADE AND BROWNIES,” the Newport Beach quintet unleashed a series of albums that Mark McGrath describes as “love letters to the music we loved, with no irony just pure enthusiasm.” 1997’s “FLOORED” saw the band refine its multi-faceted sound with the assistance of GRAMMY® Award-winning producer David Kahane (Sublime, Paul McCartney, The Strokes). The album proved Sugar Ray’s popular breakthrough, earning 2x platinum certification from the RIAA, fueled in part by the #1 hit single, “Fly.”

EVERCLEAR (http://www.everclearonline.com/)

For over two decades, Everclear's sound has reflected the rock, post-punk, and singer/songwriter influences of Art 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.

Last year, Everclear released their ninth studio album titled Black Is The New Black via The End Records/ADA. Across the album, the insistent kick of drummer Sean Winchester, athletic groove of bassist Freddy Herrera, and ridiculously skilled guitar shred of Davey French join forces behind the storm of giant guitar riffs swinging mightily from song to song. A bit of tasteful keyboards from Josh Crawley add atmospheric punch to songs that could crush a tiny dive bar or destroy the cheap seats in the world’s biggest arena with equal force.

Lit (http://litband.com)

A major player throughout the post-grunge boom of the late '90s, Lit featured the combined talents of frontman A. Jay Popoff, his guitar-playing brother Jeremy, bassist Kevin Baldes, and drummer Allen Shellenberger. The group formed in 1990 in Orange County, California, where it initially performed metal-influenced music under the name Razzle. After changing their name, Lit began embracing a spunky brand of punk-pop that helped attract a local following in California. The group sold out local venues (including Club 369 in Fullerton) and issued two recordings: an EP, Five Smokin' Tracks from Lit; and the full-length Tripping the Light Fantastic, which arrived during the spring of 1997 and became a college radio hit.

Sponge (http://spongetheband.com)

Sponge has proven to be one of the Motor City's heaviest hitters after gaining international notoriety with their debut album "Rotting Piñata” (Sony). Emerging from Detroit with hits like "Plowed" and "Molly (16 Candles)" Sponge received massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and were in heavy rotation on MTV. Having shared stages the world over with Guns N’ Roses, Nickelback, Iggy Pop, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Kiss, to name just a few, Sponge continues to be one of rock’s most sought after live acts.

ABOUT STRATES SHOWS INC.

Strates Shows has a history dating back to 1923 when James E. Strates began his first show. Mr. Strates, a Greek immigrant, came to America in 1909 and like most immigrants, worked numerous jobs. In 1919, he joined a carnival athletic show as a wrestler setting his foot in the door on the amusement industry. Strates acquired Southern Tier Shows in 1923 later changing the name to James E. Strates Shows in 1932. Due to his strength and devotion, his carnival was able to grow and expand over the years even against turmoil. He continued to build and manage the carnival until his death in 1959 turning the business over to his son, E. James Strates, who still operates and maintains it today. The James E. Strates show has become an acknowledged industry leader with an admired and well-respected founder by those in the business as well as others who knew him. Now based in Orlando, Florida, the show provides rides, games of skill, tasty foods and merchandise concessions to fairs, festivals and venues throughout the United States.
