Original Candlebox lineup reuniting for one-night hometown show
The original lineup of '90s grunge rockers Candlebox will reunite for a one-night-only special concert at the Paramount Theatre in the band's hometown of Seattle on July 21st.
Singer Kevin Martin, guitarist Peter Klett, bassist Bardi Martin and drummer Scott Mercado will perform their debut album in its entirety from start to finish at the show to commemorate its 25th anniversary.
Kevin Martin said in a statement, "I can't believe its been 25 years. It seems like yesterday we were playing the first of three sold-out shows at the Paramount and to be able to come back 25 years later to that same magical venue to play these songs for our fans is truly overwhelming and humbling."
Joining Candlebox at the Paramount will be Seattle staples and longtime friends Sweetwater and Green Apple Quick Step.
Candlebox's self-titled debut album sold more than four million copies in the U.S. and featured the hit singles "Far Behind," "You" and "Cover Me.”
Kevin Martin remains the only original member in the band's current lineup, whose most release was titled Disappearing In Airports.
The current lineup of Candlebox will kick off a North American tour on January 25th in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
