Nine Days, although less active in their later years, have been together for 20 years. The band features songwriters John Hampson and Brian Desveaux – both of whom pursued solo careers while Nine Days wasn't playing out as frequently. The band released their major label debut, The Madding Crowd, in the spring of 2000. The album was certified gold and featured the lead single, “Absolutely (Story of a Girl).” The band's most recent album, Something Out of Nothing, was released in October 2013. The band used PledgeMusic, a crowdfunding website, to raise money from fan donations to help pay for the recording and distribution process. Those who donated received unique rewards such as handwritten lyric sheets, all-access to upcoming shows, and even a special birthday serenade from the band.

Two other '90s bands, Stroke 9 and Dishwalla, will also be playing the show this fall. Stroke 9 saw success with their track “Little Black Backpack” off the 1999 album Nasty Little Thoughts. Dishwalla are best known for their 1995 hit song “Counting Blue Cars” off their album Pet Your Friends.

The popularity of the nostalgia-filled '90s band shows began in 2012, when Everclear and Sugar Ray played the first Summerland Tour.

Tickets for the Nine Days show will go on sale to the public July 11 at 10 a.m. on the Ticketmaster website or in-person at The Paramount box office.
