Last Summer on Earth Tour Blues Traveler
Blues Traveler commenced its journey from the iconic locale of Princeton in New Jersey. Starting out as a high school band during the mid-1980s, Blues Traveler constituted John Popper, who not only played both the Harmonica and the guitar but also did the vocals, Brendan Hills on drums as well as his brother on bass. Later on, Bobby Sheehan also joined in as a bassist. Initially Blues Traveler experimented with a rolling roster, mostly entailing guest guitarists, and tried to popularize themselves by producing demos on cassette tapes that contained their covers of songs such as "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" as well as "Gloria". Their original focus was endorsing the jamming style that bands such as the Grateful Dead as well as Led Zeppelin had made their forte during the 1960s and 1970s.
After graduating from Princeton High School, the members of Blues Traveler relocated to New York City and started doing the rounds of the local club circuit, It was apparently during one of their gigs there that a talent from A&M Records discovered them and eventually signed them on to the label. Blues Traveler released their self-titled debut album in 1990 and saw it chart on Billboard 200. With their sophomoric offering Travelers and Thieves stealing away a peak position of 125 on Billboard 200, 1993's Save His Soul entered the top-100 slot. However, the following year's record Four massively upped Blues Traveler's game by breaking into the top ten on Billboard 200 as well as being certified an impressive 6 times platinum. The albums single "Run Round" proved to be a massive hit for the band and became their first top-ten single on Billboard's Hot 100, peaking at the 8th spot, with "Hook" attaining a high of 24.

1997's Straight on till Morning proved to be another rollicking success both with the fans as well as on the charts, making it to the 11th spot and Billboard 200 and being certified platinum. The tracks "Carolina Blues" and "Most Precious" were moderate hits, becoming top-forty singles on the US Alternate charts. 1999 saw Blues Traveler run into a tragic road bump in its now high-flying career. Bassist Bobby Sheehan expired apparently after injecting a lethal cocktail of cocaine, heroin and diazepam. Blues Traveler resolved to keep making music, especially as a means of symphonic salivation. The 2000s saw them go through various labels, such as Interscope for the 2001 record Bridge that peaked at 91 on Billboard 200 and opting for Vanguard Records for releasing their 2005 record ¡Bastardos! that rose to the 49th position on the Us Indie charts.

Blues Traveler started enjoying a wave of popularity early in their career, thanks to the services of the world-renowned concert organizer Bill Graham who structured a rigorous touring schedule that had the band performing at venues all along the East Coast. Their newfound fame led to them collaborating with the legendary guitarist Carlos Santana and band member John Popper recently also recorded a duet with Lisa Bouchelle called "Only The Tequila Talking".
