Abby AndersonEmblem/Atlantic recording artist and multiple-Grammy® Award-winning singer/songwriter Rob Thomas brings “Chip Tooth Tour” with special guest Abby Anderson to Meadow Brook Amphitheatre on the campus of Oakland University on Saturday this June. Thomas is one of the most distinctive artists of this or any other era – a gifted vocalist, spellbinding performer, and acclaimed songwriter known worldwide as lead singer and primary composer with Matchbox Twenty as well as for his multi-platinum certified solo work and chart-topping collaborations with other artists. Among his countless hits are solo classics like “Lonely No More,” “This Is How A Heart Breaks,” and “Streetcorner Symphony,” Matchbox Twenty favorites including “Push,” “3AM,” “If You’re Gone,” and “Bent,” and of course “Smooth,” his 3x RIAA platinum certified worldwide hit collaboration with Santana which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Thomas earned three Grammy® Awards for his role as co-writer and vocalist on “Smooth,” which topped Billboard’s “Hot 100” for an astounding 12 consecutive weeks and spent 58 total weeks on the chart, the No. 1 song in Billboard’s “Top Hot 100 Rock Songs” chart history and No. 2 “Hot 100” song of all time. As if that weren’t enough, “Smooth” was declared the all-time No. 1 song on Billboard’s “Adult Pop Songs” radio airplay chart, the No. 1 song of the rock era based on chart performance on Billboard's Hot 100, and recently declared to still hold the spot as the second most successful song of all time by Billboard. In 2004, Thomas was the first artist to be honored with the Songwriters Hall of Fame’s prestigious “Hal David Starlight Award,” created to recognize a composer in the early years of his or her career that has already made a lasting impact. He has won numerous BMI and ASCAP Awards, and twice earned the “Songwriter of the Year” crown from both Billboard and BMI. Overall, Thomas has contributed to sales of more than 80 million records. Thomas made his solo debut with 2005’s platinum certified …Something To Be and immediately made history as the first album by a male artist from a rock or pop group to ever debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Thomas’ sophomore solo album, 2009’s Cradlesong, marked still another milestone, generating two No. 1 singles in “Her Diamonds” and “Someday.” Billboard chart history was made once again, with Thomas tying P!nk for the most No. 1 Adult Top 40 hits by a solo artist as well becoming the first male solo artist to score multiple chart-toppers at the format. In 2012, Matchbox Twenty returned with their first all-new album in a decade, North. Fueled by the hit singles, “She’s So Mean,” “Overjoyed,” and “Our Song,” North proved a landmark for the band, their first ever No. 1 debut and Billboard 200 chart-topper. Thomas’ third solo album, 2015’s internationally acclaimed The Great Unknown, had a top 10 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its release and featured hit singles “Hold On Forever” and “Pieces.”Meadow Brook Amphitheatre
