The Under The Sun Tour 2013, featuring ’90s mega-rock bands Smash Mouth, Sugar Ray, Gin Blossoms, and Fastball made a stop in Newport, R.I. on Sunday August 4, 2013 for the Newport Yachting Center’s Sunset Music Series.
Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath charismatically emceed the event, introducing each band before their sets. He took time to extend his gratitude to the fans for coming out to the show, and said being in Newport near the ocean reminded him of his home.
Austin, Texas band Fastball kicked off the evening with an entertaining set that mixed old hits with newer tunes. The most notable song in the set, “The Way,” from their 1998 album “All the Pain Money Can Buy,” had the entire audience singing along to every word.
