Collective Soul and Switchfoot

Rockers, Collective Soul and Switchfoot join forces for their return to Ruth Eckerd Hall! The quintet Collective Soul developed the grundge genre into a succinct type of angst, turning the sonic cacophony of grunge into radio-friendly hard rock.The hardcharging positivity of Right as Rain, the deeply introspective Observation of Thoughts, the full-throttle insistence of Over Me, and the acoustified good vibes of Porch Swing all stand tall live alongside such indelibly durable hits like Shine, December, The World I Know, Gel, AYTA, and Heavy. After gaining a foothold in the contemporary Christian music scene, alternative rockers Switchfoot went mainstream with 2003's The Beautiful Letdown. The band began adding elements of synth rock, post-grunge, and power pop, resulting in chart-topping major-label successes like Nothing Is Sound and Hello Hurricane.
