O.A.R. - The XX TOUR

O.A.R. - The XX Tour
An Evolution Of A Revolution
Sunday, July 17
Dow Diamond
Gates: 5pm l Show: 6pm

O.A.R. (an acronym for the band's full moniker, Of a Revolution) transformed itself from an independent college band to a Billboard chart-topper over the course of a long, varied career. First, two of the band's demo recordings were hawked on university campuses. Then, news spread about the band's roots rock and reggae-inflected songs, which owed much to the jam band genre. Before long, O.A.R.'s website had turned into a highly trafficked Internet destination, and the group gradually left the college scene for the bright lights of national stardom. O.A.R. is renowned for its intense, vibrant live show-and the communal feeling it shares with its fans.

In celebration of their 20th anniversary, O.A.R. has announced the upcoming release of their new album XX out on August 5th via Vanguard Records. The two CD set includes a career-spanning collection of O.A.R.'s biggest hits and incredible live shows plus new studio material. Disc one features fan favorites such as "Heaven", "Peace", Shattered, "Two Hands Up" and more. Disc two spotlights select performances from their extensive live catalog. To coincide with the release of XX, O.A.R. will embark on the XX Tour: Evolution of a Revolution, a national summer headline run with over 30+ dates.

Featured guest will include Vertical Horizon and longtime local musicean Michael Robertson. Vertical Horizon was founded in the early 1990's, touring extensively before their breakout album in 1999, Everything You Want, which went on to sell more than two million copies. Their follow-up album, Go, was released in 2003 and solidified the band as a no-nonsense pop rock entity.

Michigan Native Michael Robinson has a knack for recognizing irony when exploring the nuances of unremarkable - yet universal - life experience. Michael spent a dozen years with Maybe August and currently heads a side project, the Robertson Bros. Band. All My Stories, released in June 2016, detail Robertson's musical journey with vivid precision.
