It’s only fitting that with all of the changes around Kansas Speedway this summer, that a band with a hit song called “Change,” perform a concert during Kansas National Guard Pre-Race for the Hollywood Casino 400. Multi-platinum rock band Candlebox will perform at approximately 11:20 AM on Oct. 21.
“I’m excited that we were able to get Candlebox for our prerace concert,” said Kansas Speedway President Pat Warren. “They have been building their sound and following for the past 20 years and I know they will provide our fans a great concert prior to the Hollywood Casino 400. It will be a great way to kick off the day.”
Candlebox released their latest album, Love Stories & Other Musings, on April 3, 2012, 21 years after the band formed in Seattle. The album evidences a newfound level of maturity for the band and at the same time, listening to it with the volume turned up reveals that the band remains filled with their youthful exuberance that marked their first go-round in the 1990s, a decade during which they ran off a string off alt-rock classics while selling north of five million albums.
Love Stories & Other Musings features nine new songs, along with crisp re-recordings of five of the band’s best-loved ‘90s hits, including the classics “Far Behind,” “Cover Me,” “You,” and “Change,” comprising a bountiful bonus for their diehard fans.
