Rock N Roll Triple Play Balpark Tour with Live, Counting Crows, and Collective Soul


As a huge baseball fan, it is really cool to me to see fairly local York, PA band Live, Counting Crows, and Collective Soul (is it 1994 again?) touring for The Rock 'N Roll Triple Play Ballpark Tour, which will hit 23 East Coast and Midwest cities, first stepping to the plate July 22 in Wilmington, DE (go Delaware! Go Blue Rocks!) and ultimately sliding home Sept. 2 in Fargo, ND.

Live has been together for 20 years, still in their original lineup, and still sell out small nightclub venues regularly when they tour. I am reasonably confident these three bands can sell out minor league ballparks.

The tour will hit minor league ballparks all over, including the Aberdeen Ironbirds and Frederick Keys here in Maryland.
