Collective Soul will celebrate the 100th birthday of Las Vegas by headlining the 10-date Road to Vegas tour. From May 27 through June 29, the one-of-a-kind Vegas-themed concert tour will hit the top 10 Las Vegas feeder market cities: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Houston, Fort Lauderdale, Washington DC, Philadelphia, New York, Chicago and Atlanta. Collective Soul is currently promoting its latest CD release, "Youth," with current radio singles "Better Now" and "Counting the Days."
The "Road to Vegas" tour will recreate the Las Vegas experience in each city, transforming each concert venue into a hip Vegas nightspot. Classic icons such as showgirls and Elvis impersonators will interact with guests against a backdrop of neon and larger-than-life Las Vegas imagery. Las Vegas-style gaming lounges will also be featured. During the event, concertgoers can register to win prizes, including a trip to Las Vegas on July 2 to attend a live concert event with multiple bands. Tickets for "Road to Vegas" featuring Collective Soul will go on sale starting in mid-April.
"Vegas is one of our favorite cities to play, so when we were offered a chance to participate in this 100 year birthday tour, we didn't have to think twice about getting in on the action," said Collective Soul guitarist, Dean Roland. "I like to think that Collective Soul is a band that enjoys seeing a gamble pay off. So going on the road with Vegas sounded like hitting a jackpot, no doubt about it."
As previously reported, Collective Soul has recently announced that they will be releasing an acoustic CD entitled “From the Ground Up” on April 26th. The album features acoustic renditions of songs from the band's previous major label releases, as well as their latest independent release "Youth". You can pre-order the album online now.
