at Brighton Music Hall

Long celebrated as one of the country's best live experiences, the Sam Roberts Band rolled through town on their new album tour for COLLIDER (May 10 on Zoƫ/Rounder Records). It's an album that American Songwriter lauded as an "entire album showcasing well-constructed rock songs," adding "Roberts deliveries his vocals with the sort of strut you want from your rock stars ... air guitar is necessary and head-bobbing is unavoidable." That's the kind of praise that has earned the band a ton of attention this time around, but the best praise is coming from those at the shows. Catch this red-hot band on tour while you can.
