Counting Crows / Collective Soul

$46 to $50.50. 618-337-3000.

1993 was the year that both Counting Crows and Collective Soul became leaders of the post-grunge alt-rock era — largely thanks to inescapable radio play for the former's "Mr. Jones" (off August and Everything After) and the latter's "Shine" (from Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid). Now respective front-dudes Adam Duritz and Ed Roland are banking on I Love the '90s nostalgia (and interest in forthcoming new albums) as they embark on a family-friendly tour of minor-league ballparks. The trek's no Woodstock '94, but expect reworkings of old favorites, the debut of new material — and the inevitable clash of angsty introspection with mellow, lazy-summer atmospherics.
