Hollywood Blues Tour

The Hollywood Blues Tour was a concert tour through the United States and Canada, undertaken by American rock band ZZ Top. Named after a warm-up show at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, California, the tour was their second of which to be staged without a supporting album. As a result, they did not perform any newer material. Although this was a criticism for the tour, it was generally well-received—a critic from The Florida Times-Union regarded the band as "one of rock's most reliable acts; you just know they're going to put on a good show". In contrast to ZZ Top's elaborately-staged productions from previous tours, the Hollywood Blues Tour utilized an austere stage setup. To embrace the group's renowned concept of visual imagery, the stage featured an LED drape for a backdrop video screen that showed visual effects, video clips and flashing text phrases, along with amplifiers stacks and a Van de Graaff generator.

Consisting of four legs and 97 shows, the tour began in Biloxi, Mississippi on March 6, 2007 and ended in Aspen, Colorado on December 31, 2007. After the first leg, the tour was expanded for a summer tour with the Stray Cats and The Pretenders, which was branded as "Summer Scorcher". With a total gross of $17.8 million, Hollywood Blues sold over 380,000 tickets at its conclusion. The band's 2008 live album and DVD Live from Texas was filmed and recorded during a show in Grand Prairie, Texas. A portion of the tour is shown in the Eagle Rock 2009 concert film Double Down Live.

Into the Ocean

"Into the Ocean" is the second single from Blue October's fifth album, Foiled. The song peaked at #53 on the Billboard Hot 100, while the music video for the song, directed by Zach Merck, reached number one on the VH1 V-Spot countdown. On May 4, 2012 the single was certified platinum for sales of one million in the United States. It was featured on the TV series The Sopranos and Moonlight.

The song was initially released on the 2006 album Foiled, and subsequent versions of the song have been released on the EP Foiled Again, the acoustic album Ugly Side: An Acoustic Evening with Blue October, the live album Teach Your Baby Well Live, the live album/concert film Things We Do At Night - Live From Texas, and the live solo album Open Book Winter Album. A cover version was released on the Hurricane Bells 2010 EP Down Comes The Rain.
