As a special bonus, Matchbox Twenty will be taking over AXS TV’s Twitter account to talk to fans in a special interactive live event happening 30 minutes before the premiere of MATCHBOX TWENTY LIVE NORTH at 8pE. Using #MB20Takeover, participants will be able to send their tweets directly to the band.
