Lifehouse to Perform Before Sprint Cup Race
Hit rockers making return to West Coast
With West Coast roots and a history of Top 40 hits, including "First Time," "You and Me," and the No. 1 single "Hanging By A Moment," the Interscope Geffen recording artists Lifehouse will return to their native region of the country for a performance on Phoenix International Raceway’s Budweiser ROLL-BAR Stage - located on the PIR Midway - at 11 a.m. on Sunday, November 15, just hours before the green flag drops on the Checker O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 Presented by Pennzoil, the Semi-Final Race in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Lifehouse - comprised of singer-songwriter Jason Wade, drummer Rick Woolstenhulme, bassist Bryce Soderberg, and newly-added guitarist Ben Carey - are putting the finishing touches on a new album to be released next year. Lifehouse's multi-platinum 2000 debut, No Name Face, produced "Hanging by a Moment," a No. 1 alternative hit which crossed over to become Top 40's Most Played Song of 2001, while 2005's self-titled platinum effort yielded "You and Me," a giant hit ballad that set a record by spending more than 60 weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. 2007's Who We Are included the hits "First Time," "Whatever It Takes," and "Broken," which combined sold over 2 million in single sales. To date, Lifehouse has sold over 5 million albums. Tickets to all events throughout the Checker O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 Presented by Pennzoil weekend at Phoenix International Raceway are available at the newly-designed PhoenixRaceway.com or by calling 1-866-408-RACE (7223). The PIR Ticket Office is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 125 S. Avondale Blvd., just south of I-10 at Exit 131 in Avondale.
