Alternative rock group Collective Soul makes the trek to MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa for a show on Saturday, Nov. 12, at 8 p.m. The concert comes after an eight-day break from the band’s previous stop in Montgomery, Alabama.
The group — formed in Atlanta, Georgia, in the 1990s — consists of frontman Ed Roland, guitarists Dean Roland and Jesse Triplett, bassist Will Turpin and drummer Johnny Rabb.
“Born during the rise of grunge and alternative rock, Collective Soul broke into mainstream popularity when they rose to international fame in 1993 with the rock anthem ‘Shine.’
“The multi-platinum quintet has been making music for two decades since then and has a catalog of No. 1 hits under their belts. Collective Soul helped shape and define alternative rock with lots of guitars and attitude,” states the band’s online biography.
Collective Soul was featured on the “Twilight” film soundtrack in 2008 with their song “Tremble for My Beloved.”
“Following the film’s success, the song’s exposure earned Collective Soul new popularity and connected with a younger audience,” according to the biography.
The band’s ninth album, “See What You Started by Continuing,” debuted at the start of 2015. Collective Soul then launched a tour to celebrate their 21st anniversary.
Tickets for the concert begin at $52.50, plus tax and fees. They are available at http://www.montbleuresort.com.
MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa is located at 55 Highway 50 in Stateline.
