Louisville, KY – On Sunday, July 10, Sublime with Rome will take the stage at the Iroquois Amphitheater.

Tickets, $35 in advance and $40 day of show,  will be go on sale this Friday, May 20 at 10:00 AM at all Ticketmaster locations including select Kroger stores,
online at Ticketmaster.com.com or by phone at 1-800-745-3000.

Featuring founding members of Sublime, drummer Bud Gaugh and bass player Eric Wilson with new frontman, singer/guitarist Rome – Sublime with Rome is reintroducing themselves and Sublime’s music to fans across the country.

Rome, a 21-year-old northern California native, was introduced to Gaugh and Wilson in 2008. Last year, a handful of jam sessions led to an impromptu show at a small club in Nevada flooring a packed-house crowd. The trio later performed a one-off at the Smokeout Festival last fall and was a surprise special guest at the infamous KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas show, before officially dubbing themselves Sublime with Rome. The band returned to the stage for the first time in 14-years, fittingly on 4/20/10 for two highly anticipated, sold out nights at the Hollywood Palladium to rave reviews.

“Our shows are full of surprises,” said Gaugh. “Sublime has never used a set list. We are performing songs off every album and mix it up from show to show, never delivering the same set twice. We’ve also been working on some new material and have put together a couple of songs with Rome. We want to celebrate the music and share the experience with our fans.”

One of the most notable and successful ska-punk bands of all time, Sublime has sold over 17 million albums worldwide with the group’s music remaining in constant radio rotation across the country. Influential Los Angeles rock radio station KROQ has listed Sublime as the #3 act in their annual “biggest bands” list for the last six years in a row with the single “Date Rape” ranking as the all-time most requested song at the station. To this day, the group’s multi-platinum landmark debut album “40oz. to Freedom,” lo-fi follow up “Robbin’ the Hood,” and multi-platinum self-titled major label debut (a virtual greatest hits set in itself) are all widely regarded as music collection staples. Formed in Long Beach in 1988, Sublime’s final performance was in the spring of 1996.

Sublime with Rome will be performing live at the Iroquois Amphitheater on Sunday, July 10. Tickets, $35 in advance and $40 day of show,  will be go on sale this Friday, May 20 at 10:00 AM at all Ticketmaster locations including select Kroger stores, online at Ticketmaster.com.com or by phone at 1-800-745-3000.
