The band's debut album featured their biggest hits "You" and "Far Behind." Frontman Kevin Martin will complete the rest of the Candlebox tour with his current lineup, but Peter Klett, Bardi Martin, and Scott Mercado will all join him for a single show in Seattle. 

"We can’t wait to hit the road for this one — I think people will be in for some big surprises!” Martin told the Alternative Press.

This won't be the first time The Paramount gets some grunge love in recent years. In 2016, fellow Seattle grunge outfit Temple of the Dog reunited at the theatre for two nights of shows, which wrapped up an eight-show tour. 

Tickets to see the show go on sale Friday, January 19 here.
