'LIVE' will perform at IMS May 17

Chart-topping alternative rock band LIVE will provide exhilarating entertainment for fans during the first day of qualifications for the 98th running of the Indianapolis 500 on May 17 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Verizon IndyCar Series practice and qualifying will be held throughout the day with the LIVE concert taking place on the Pagoda Plaza Stage beginning at 2 p.m. The concert is free with paid gate admission.

LIVE, a four-man group that originated in York, Pa., surged onto the burgeoning alternative music scene in 1991 with its major label debut, “Mental Jewelry.” The band infused heartfelt melodies with raw energy for an inimitable style that has stood out from the early ‘90s pack.

LIVE’s impressive catalog of songs includes seminal tunes and mega hits such as “Lightning Crashes,” “I Alone,” “All Over You” and “Lakini’s Juice,” all becoming pillars of the ‘90s, both musically and culturally. “The Dolphin’s Cry” and “Overcome” ushered the group triumphantly into the 21st century, and given anthems such as those, LIVE has sold more than 22 million albums worldwide and has become a veritable concert juggernaut.

LIVE’s sophomore set, “Throwing Copper,” solidified its status as bona fide superstars. After 52 weeks, it reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and eventually surpassed sales of 10 million in merely two years. Rolling Stone and MTV both dubbed the album “One of the 25 Greatest Rock Albums of All-Time.”

Upon release, its 1997 follow-up, “Secret Samadhi,” immediately shot to No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and eventually went six-times platinum. However, on “The Distance to Here” in 1999, LIVE turned into an international powerhouse and jumped from arenas into stadiums all over the globe driven by the smash “The Dolphin’s Cry.” “V” and “Birds of Pray” followed, continuing to expand their legacy and satiate their rabid and faithful fan base amassed over nearly two decades.
