Blues Traveler, who has played together since the members attended high school together in Princeton, N.J., signed with A&M in 1989. In 1992, after all of the big summer touring headliners had passed on Blues Traveler as a support act, lead singer John Popper started the HORDE Festival, which has since grown into the number four grossing U.S. tour of the summer of 1996.
Their fourth studio record, four (1994), sold over six million copies and made the band commercially successful with the release of top-10 singles, "Run-around," and "Hook." Other albums include Blues Traveler, Travelers & Thieves, Save His Soul, Live from the Fall and Straight on Till Morning.
"We are thrilled to be bringing another big-name concert to the Stanley Theater," said Corey Landstrom, Hamilton College program coordinator, student activities. "Having this wonderful facility so close to the Hamilton campus allows us to bring in groups that we might not otherwise be able to attract."
General public tickets cost $28. and will go on sale Saturday, Sept. 12 at all Ticket Master outlets, Ticket Master charge-by-phone and the Stanley Performing Arts Center box office.
