CANCELLED: Collective Soul and Everclear at the National Cherry Festival

  • About

    The National Cherry Festival is excited to welcome Everclear and welcome back Collective Soul to its 2020 Bay Side Stage line up. Both groups will be rocking all of their classic hits on Saturday, July 11th on the Pepsi Bay Side Music stage.

    Coming hot off a triumphant, year-long celebration of their 25th anniversary in 2019, the very last thing Collective Soul plan on doing in 2020 is rest on their laurels. If anything, these five fiery Georgia-bred rockers (E Roland on vocals/guitar, Dean Roland on rhythm guitar, Jesse Triplett on lead guitar/background vocals, Will Turpin on bass/background vocals, and Johnny Rabb on drums/background vocals) are only just getting started with the next phase of a thriving career that has seen them move millions of records and wow multitudes of fans all across the globe.

    Considering Everclear has written and recorded some truly iconic '90s alt-rock hits, it would be all too easy these days for the band to be a victim of its past successes, but singer-guitarist Art Alexakis along with Dave French of guitar, Freddy Herra on bass, and Brian Nolan on drums, aren't about to start phoning it in now. The band released a new studio album in 2015, Black is The New Black, and continues to tour actively. While it's a virtual surety that no Everclear gig is complete without a rendition of "Santa Monica" and "Father of Mine", lately the band has found that exploring the full range of past material – especially the "deep cuts" –  not only gives fans a rare treat, it also injects new life into the band's live dynamic.

    Tickets go on sale on Friday, February 28th at 9:00 AM.
