Rob Thomas’s returns to Adelaide, performing at a day on the green at Leconfield Wines, McLaren Vale on Sunday, November 10. Last in Adelaide to headline the 2016 Adelaide 500 Post-Race concert to an audience of over 30,000, Rob Thomas also headlined a sold-out Leconfield Wines concert in February 2010.
Some of Australia’s most popular singer-songwriters have today been announced as very special guests on ROB THOMAS’s upcoming Chip Toothtour in November.
ROB THOMAS is one of the most distinctive artists of this or any other era – a gifted vocalist, spell-binding performer and an acclaimed songwriter known worldwide as the lead singer and primary composer with Matchbox Twenty, as well as for his multi-platinum solo work and chart-topping collaborations. As a songwriter and collaborator, Rob Thomas has racked up global sales of more than 80 million records.
Fans can expect a dynamic show of huge hits and favourites plucked from the hugely successful solo artist and Matchbox Twenty frontman’s 30+ year career, as well as a tasting of new tracks lifted from his new album Chip Tooth Smile.
Among his numerous hits are solo classics like Lonely No More, This Is How A Heart Breaks, Her Diamonds, Streetcorner Symphony, Little Wonders and Matchbox Twenty favourites Push, 3AM, If You’re Gone, Unwell, How Far We’ve Come and Bent, as well as Smooth, his worldwide smash hit Santana collaboration.
Chip Tooth Smile (out now through Warner Music Australia) is Rob’s fourth solo album – debuting at Number 3 on the ARIA album chart and featuring singles I Love It and One Less Day (Dying Young).
Rob Thomas’ ongoing love affair with Australian audiences is set to continue this November with his very welcome return down under. And with a stellar line-up of Aussie talent joining Rob, this is one special show you won’t want to miss.

smart songwriting, excellent pop/rock craftsmanship, eclectic and at times moving, at times, fun, and always solid.” The 12-track collection features production from Butch Walker (Panic! At The Disco, P!nk) and Benny Blanco (Ed Sheeran), perfectly complimenting Thomas’ long-acclaimed songwriting talent.
Lead single “One Less Day (Dying Young)” has seen performances on ABC’s Good Morning America (WATCH), Jimmy Kimmel Live!
