Collective Soul, Blues Traveler, Live At Westbury

Live Nation presents Live, Collective Soul and Blues Traveler, three recognized and distinguished rock bands, at the Capital One Bank Theatre at Westbury on Wednesday, August 13 at 8 p.m.

Live began to soar when they released their 1991 debut LP, Mental Jewelry. The album incurred a number of infamous singles such as "Operation Spirit (The Tyranny of Tradition) and "Pain Lies on the Riverside." In 1994, Live released Throwing Copper, which has sold 8 million copies in the US and was the first album since Fleetwood Mac to reach the top of the Billboard 200 album chart only after 52 weeks on the chart. The album features the hits "I Alone," "Selling The Drama," and "Lightning Crashes," to name a few. Over the next few years, Live had a number of Billboard hits including "Lakini's Juice," "The Dolphin's Cry," and "Heaven." In 2007, the band released their first album since 1989 on their own Action Front Records label, Radiant Sea: A Collection of Bootleg Rarities and Two New Songs, featuring two brand new songs: "Beautiful Invisible" and "Radiant Sea."

Collective Soul broke into mainstream popularity with their hit single "Shine" from their debut album Hints, Allegations, and Things Left Unsaid. Within months of its release, "Shine" became a modern rock and MTV staple, and Collective Soul found themselves with a platinum debut. The group enjoyed much popularity on throughout the mid to late 1990s, recording seven #1 mainstream rock hits including "Shine," "December," "The

World I Know," "Where The River Flows," "Precious Declaration," "Listen" and "Heavy." Collective Soul's seventh studio album, Afterwords, was released in 2007 and features the singles "Hollywood" and "All That I Know."

Blues Traveler is a Grammy award winning rock band best known for their singles "Run-Around," "Hook" and "But Anyway." In 2007, the group released their latest album, Cover Yourself, a "best-of" album of previously-released songs re-recorded and reinterpreted with acoustic instrumentation. At their 2008 shows, Blues Traveler is performing new songs off their new album, North Hollywood Shootout, which is expected to be released in late summer of 2008.
