GIN BLOSSOMS CELEBRATE TWENTY YEARS AT VAPOR
1/10/2013 4:03:34 PM
SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY (January 10, 2013) – Bringing their hit songs including, "Found Out About You," "Hey Jealousy," and "Follow You Down," the Gin Blossoms arrive in Saratoga Springs on January 24 for a show at Vapor Night Club.
The Gin Blossoms are most known for their 1992 album, "New Miserable Experience," which kept the band on the charts for almost three years. Chart-topping singles from that album included, "Hey Jealousy," "Allison Road," "Until I Fall Away," "Mrs Rita," and "Found Out About You." The album took over airwaves with cross-over hits in four different radio formats. "New Miserable Experience" kicked the band into mainstream, selling over four million copies. This tour celebrates that milestone and the album’s 20 year anniversary.
Another wildly popular hit by the Gin Blossoms includes, "Til I Hear It From You," which appeared on the platinum sound track for the film Empire Records and was released as a single.
Their final record of the 90’s, "Congratulations I’m Sorry," brought two more big hits. "Follow You Down" spent 10 weeks in the Top Ten and "As Long As It Matters" earned a Grammy nomination for Best Performance by a Duo or Group, losing to the Beatles.
Over the years, Gin Blossoms have toured over 25 different countries including a five-city tour of Iraq in 2010. They have been in the process of writing and recording a new album, with a goal of releasing it this year. Other plans for 2013 include playing in over 100 cities, appearing as one of five artists on a rock cruise and some international shows.
The doors will open at 7 p.m. and the show begins an hour later. As always, guests must be 21 and older to enter Vapor. Tickets are $20 if purchased in advance, available at saratogacasino.com. The price of admission will increase to $25 the day of the show. Discounts are available for the casino’s Player Extras Club members.
