The Struts – Sept. 10 – Orioles vs. Red Sox
Formed in Derby, England, in 2012, The Struts have found themselves massively embraced by some of the greatest icons in rock-and-roll history. Along with opening for Foo Fighters, The Rolling Stones, The Who, and Guns N’ Roses, the UK-bred four-piece band was handpicked by Mötley Crüe to serve as the supporting act for their last-ever performances. Releasing their debut album Everybody Wants in 2016 and sophomore album YOUNG&DANGEROUS in 2018, they’ve toured incessantly since their formation, including worldwide headline shows and major festivals like Lollapalooza, Governors Ball, and Isle of Wight. When COVID-19 brought touring to a halt, The Struts created their third album Strange Days over the course of a charmed and frenzied burst of creativity. Within just ten days, the band laid down nine original tracks alongside their masterful cover of a KISS B-side.

Featuring Dru Hill with special performance by Sisqó and Smash Mouth
Plus, DJ Spinderella, best known as the DJ for the iconic group Salt-N-Pepa, will serve as the celebrity guest DJ throughout the game and will kick off the postgame show.
Years from now when it's all said and done, music historians will surely debate the contributions of those who majorly impacted the genre of R&B. Icons guaranteed to be mentioned are industry stalwarts such as The Temptations, The Four Tops, The O'Jay's, The Jackson Five, New Edition, Guy, Jodeci, and Boyz II Men. However, any list that does not include the incomparable Dru Hill is grossly inaccurate. The torch bearers responsible for carrying R&B music into the new millennium was the labor of love for four immensely talented young singers who were and remain the quintessential example of superior entertainers. From their first single, "Tell Me" (what you want), Dru Hill has been giving fans what they need in the form of numerous classic love ballads and infectious dance songs that have provided countless beautiful memories for millions upon millions of music lovers the world over. Named after a popular Baltimore Park, Dru Hill is comprised of “NOKIO”, “SISQO”, “SMOKE”, and “BLACK”.

But without doubt the most exciting news for Smash Mouth in 2019 is the reunification of their classic and most relevant line-up. With dovetailing and galvanizing new energy/serendipity, 2019 can be nothing but a watershed year for the legendary, several times-platinum, veteran pop-stars from San Jose.
