Summer Concert Series FRIDAY LIVE! at the FACTORY
Live Band Tonic
Friday June 03, 2011 At 5:00 pm
FRIDAY LIVE! at the FACTORY:
Six Top 10 singles. Over 4 million records sold.
Grammy nominations, platinum albums,
numerous awards and hit songs around the
world, plus the #1 most-played rock song of
1998. Tonic was a musical powerhouse,
merging the raw honesty of rock to unabashed
melody…and ushering rock n roll into a new millennium.
Many bands would be content with that sort of history. Not Tonic. The band is back in the studio after a two-year break, working on a follow up to their last album, Grammy-nominated Head On Straight.
