‘90s rock artist ‘LIVE’ to perform an acoustic show at Paramount Theatre

Thursday, Oct.12, at 7:30 p.m.—RUTLAND—LIVE have established themselves as one of the most successful rock bands of the ‘90s. With over 22 million albums sold worldwide and two No. 1 albums, “Throwing Copper” and “Secret Samadhi,” their impact on the music industry is undeniable. Songs like “Lightning Crashes,” “I Alone,” “All Over You,” and “Lakini’s Juice” have become timeless classics on rock radio. On October 12, 2023, LIVE will be performing a special acoustic set at the Paramount Theatre in Vermont.

“Throwing Copper” is the album that propelled +LIVE+ to stardom. Released in 1994, it celebrated its 25th anniversary with a deluxe edition in 2019. The album topped the Billboard Top 200 chart and went on to sell over 10 million copies, earning the band a place on Rolling Stone’s list of “1994: The 40 Best Records From Mainstream Alternative’s Greatest Year.” The standout track, “Lightning Crashes,” spent an impressive 10 weeks at No. 1 albums on the Modern Rock radio charts. 

In 1997, LIVE released their fourth studio album, “Secret Samadhi,” which immediately debuted at No. 1 album on the Billboard Top 200. The album achieved double platinum status and spawned hits like “Lakini’s Juice” and “Turn My Head.” With the release of their fifth studio album, “The Distance to Here,” in 1999, LIVE reached new heights of success. The album showcased their evolution as musicians and saw them transition from arenas to stadiums. It became another platinum-selling record and featured the hit singles “The Dolphin’s Cry” and “Run to the Water.” 

Despite a hiatus of over a decade, LIVE returned to the music scene in 2018 with the release of their five-song EP, “LOCAL 717.” The new music was met with critical acclaim. Their ability to captivate audiences with their powerful performances remains unchanged, making their upcoming acoustic set at the Paramount Theatre a must-see event for fans old and new.
