Collective Soul appears in concert March 22, 2018, in Grand Junction and here are five things to know about this 1990s super band.

These guys have been around for a long time and are still doing what they love to do.

Tickets for the Grand Junction concert are available online.





Three members of Collective Soul have more than 30  years of experience in the band, which formed in the early 1990s,  including lead vocalist Ed Roland,  Ed’s brother, guitarist Dean Roland, and bassist Will Turpin.





Their #1 hit singles include “Precious Declaration”, “Listen,” and “Heavy.” Other charting singles for the band include “Shine”, “December”, “Gel”, “Smashing Young Man”, “The World I Know”, “Run”, “Why, Part 2″, “Vent”,  “Staring Down”, “You”, and “Perfect Day”, a duet with Elton John.





Collective Soul has produced 9 studio albums with a 10th album scheduled for release in March or April 2018. A new live album is being released featuring recordings from 2016 and 2017 tours.





Their top 40 hits “Hollywood” became the theme song for the TV show “American Idol.” Season 7 winner David Cook released a cover of Collective Soul’s “The World I Know” taking it to #14 on the Billboard chart.





The band’s name is taken from a phrase in the Russian novel “Fountainhead” by Ayn Rand, although they say they just like the name and it has nothing to do with the philosophy of the book.
