Matchbox Twenty - Abbey Road, London

Matchbox Twenty - Abbey Road, London

In 2007 Matchbox headed over to London to rock out in the iconic Abbey Road Studios. The birth place of some of the most successful records in music, Abbey Road has been home to Kate Bush, Duran Duran, Radiohead, Oasis, Pink Floyd and of course, The Beatles.

In 2006 the studio opened its doors for 12, 1 hour specials, the idea being to film great artists performing in this great studio. After the success of the first season, a second season began in 2007. In episode 6, alongside The Script and Def Leopard, Matchbox Twenty hit the studio floor to talk about their new found writing process and to perform 3 new songs from Exile On Mainstream and a medley of Bright Lights and She Came In Through The Bathroom Window – a song recorded at Abbey Road for The Beatles 1969 album ‘Abbey Road’.

Originally aired on the Sundance Channel in the States, ABC in Australia and Channel 4 in the UK, this great set of performances is well worth checking out.
