Treasure Island has announced Matchbox Twenty and The Wallflowers as the latest additions to its 2020 summer concert series.

Matchbox Twenty, led by frontman Rob Thomas, will headline the show at the Treasure Island Amphitheater on Sept. 4.

The four-piece had its heyday in the late '90s, thanks to hits including "Real World," "Push," "If You're Gone" and "Bent."

They hit the big-time with their album, Yourself or Someone Like You, which was diamond-certified after its release in 1996.

They'll be joined by another '90s band, The Wallflowers. Led by Jakob Dylan, the son of Minnesota's own Bob Dylan, the group had their breakthrough in 1992 with their self-titled album.

They hit the big time in 1996 with the release of Bringing Down The Horse, which spawned hits including "One Headlight," "6th Avenue Heartache," and "The Difference."

Tickets go on sale this Friday, Jan. 17, at 10 a.m. and will range in cost from $26.50 to $105.

You can get tickets either from or at the Treasure Island Box Office.
