Alter Bridge, Florida’s sensational alternative and hard rock music artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Newport Music Hall!
Alter Bridge was formed in Orlando in 2004 after the disbandment of Creed. Former Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti founded Alter Bridge and recruited ex-Creed members bassist Brian Marshall and drummer Scott Phillips. All of them were fans of musician Myles Kennedy’s former band (The Mayfield Tour) so they invited him to join Alter Bridge as its lead vocalist. They’ve had a stellar career with 5 studio albums, 2 live albums, 2 video albums, 1 EP, 13 singles, and 7 music videos. Their debut album (One Day Remains) hit #5 on the US Billboard 200 chart and has been certified Gold in the US. The band is renowned for its live performances and prefers to play at smaller venues like House of Blues (a chain of live music concert halls and restaurants throughout the United States) instead of big ones like arenas and amphitheaters. Myles said in an interview, “We're definitely a live band. That's what it's all about for us. We make records so we can go out and play for people.” Many renowned musicians such as Slash, Paul Reed Smith, Wolfgang Van Halen, and Eric Friedman have performed live with Alter Bridge as surprise guests.
Don’t miss your chance to see these artists add a unique touch to alternative and hard rock music!
