Third Eye Blind's Revamped Lineup To Tour U.S.

Outing will feature original guitarist Tony Fredianelli, who recently replaced the fired Kevin Cadogan.

Pop-rockers Third Eye Blind will take to the road with a new lineup

for a 15-stop tour beginning March 1, in Santa Barbara, Calif.

The band fired guitarist Kevin Cadogan in January after a show at the

Sundance Film Festival, in Park City, Utah.

In a Jan. 26 appearance on NBC-TV's "Tonight Show With Jay Leno,"

Third Eye Blind played with new lead guitarist Tony Fredianelli, who

had worked as a touring keyboardist and guitarist for the band since

he left its original lineup in 1996. No reason was given for the

change.

The monthlong tour follows the release of the band's second album,

Blue, which hit stores in November. The album's first single,

"Never Let You Go" (RealAudio excerpt), is getting frequent play on rock radio and is at #24 on this week's Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

Third Eye Blind achieved fame in 1997, with their hit single

"Semi-Charmed Life" (RealAudio excerpt). Propelled by the single's success, their self-titled debut album sold more than 4 million copies.

Opening on the tour will be Tonic, whose pop-rock single "You Wanted More" (RealAudio excerpt) became a hit after appearing on the soundtrack to the summer film "American Pie."
