Although Lifehouse is the third band on the bill, the modern rock act is coming into the tour with impressive momentum. Its single, "Hanging By A Moment," is in its third week at No. 1 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart. The accompanying DreamWorks album, "No Name Face," is No. 49 on The Billboard 200 this week.
"Mad Season by matchbox twenty" (Lava/Atlantic) is nominated for a best rock album Grammy, while the single "Bent" is up in the best rock song category. Producer Matt Serletic is also nominated for producer of the year. The album, which peaked at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 last June, is at No. 39 on the chart this week.
Everclear will be out supporting a pair of albums it released in 2000, "Songs From An American Movie Vol. One: Learning How To Smile" and "Songs From An American Movie Vol. Two: Good Time For A Bad Attitude." The albums debuted at No. 9 and No. 66 on The Billboard 200, respectively.
