LIVE, a four-man group that originated in York, Pa., surged on to the burgeoning alternative music scene in 1991with their major label debut, “Mental Jewelry.” The band infused heartfelt melodies with raw energy for an inimitable style that has stood out from the early nineties pack.

LIVE’s impressive catalog of songs includes seminal tunes and mega hits such as "Lightning Crashes", "I Alone", "All Over You" and "Lakini's Juice,” all becoming pillars of the ‘90’s’ both musically and culturally.

"The Dolphin's Cry" and "Overcome" ushered the group triumphantly into the 21st century, and given anthems such as those, LIVE has sold more than 22 million albums worldwide and have become a veritable concert juggernaut.

LIVE's sophomore set, “Throwing Copper,” solidified their status as bona fide superstars. After fifty-two weeks it reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and eventually surpassed sales of 10 million in merely two years. Rolling Stone and MTV both dubbed the album "One of the 25 Greatest Rock Albums of All-Time", while tastemakers from Spin to the New York Times lauded it with equal praise.

Upon release, its 1997 follow-up “Secret Samadhi” immediately shot to No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and eventually went six-times platinum. However, on “The Distance to Here” in 1999, LIVE turned into an international powerhouse and jumped from arenas into stadiums all over the globe driven by the smash "The Dolphin's Cry." “V” and “Birds of Pray” followed, continuing to expand their legacy and satiate their rabid and faithful fan base amassed over nearly two decades.

LIVE are planning to release a brand new album in the fall of 2014, produced by longtime producer and collaborator Jerry Harrison [Talking Heads]

The 98th running of the Indianapolis 500 will take place on Sunday, May 25.
