This is Matchbox Twenty's first tour since they reunited in 2017 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut LP, Yourself or Someone Like You.

“I’m proud to be a part of the greatest pop rock band in the world and I can’t wait to play with them again," Rob Thomas said in a press release. "Stepping on stage with Matchbox and sharing those songs with the fans feels as natural as breathing to me at this point.”
