SWITCHFOOT LAUNCH SPRING TOUR WITH “LIVE IN SAN DIEGO” DVD RELEASE
SET TO PERFORM
Before kicking off their spring tour in Anaheim, CA on March 15, Switchfoot will perform “Meant To Live” live on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Friday, March 12 and On Air with Ryan Seacrest Tuesday, March 16. The tour is scheduled to run through May 30. March 23 will see the release of the band’s Live In San Diego DVD. Live In San Diego was recorded at San Diego’s fabled punk rock venue Soma and features a scorching set of tunes from Switchfoot’s Columbia/Red ink debut The Beautiful Letdown. Live In San Diego will also take fans behind-the-scenes of the “Meant To Live” video shoot, feature exclusive and candid interviews with the entire band, as well as exclusive photo galleries.
The Beautiful Letdown
is Switchfoot’s fastest selling record to date and was certified
Gold by the RIAA in December. The album is quickly approaching platinum
status and is currently #81 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart
after over a year of being released. Switchfoot has experienced astonishing
success both on radio and within other media. The band toured the country
three times in 2003 to sold-out crowds, were featured in Rolling
Stone, USA Today and have performed on ABC’s Jimmy
Kimmel Live, CBS’s The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn
and NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly. The Beautiful
Letdown was also awarded with the 2003 San Diego Music Award
for Album of the Year and Best Pop Album of the Year.
Switchfoot first received critical acclaim for their debut release The
Legend of Chin, which was recognized with an ASCAP award for
Best New Artist at the 1997 San Diego Music Awards. Jon Foreman, frontman
and guitarist for the group, was awarded the “Les Paul Horizon
Award” at the annual Orville H. Gibson Guitar Awards in 2001.
