Multi-platinum recording artists, the Gin Blossoms, will rock the Mentor Civic Amphitheater for a special performance on Sunday, July 28th.
The Tempe-based group rose to prominence in 1992 with their breakthrough album “New Miserable Experience”. Some of their hits include “Hey Jealousy”, “Found Out About You”, and “Follow You Down”.
