Catapulted to success by their iconic debut single "Hanging By A Moment" seventeen years ago, Lifehouse brings their co-headlining tour with Switchfoot to Columbus on Wednesday night in support of their new "Greatest Hits" compilation

With their very first single, “Hanging By A Moment,” Lifehouse ascended to heights of commercial success that most music veterans only dream of.

The alt-rock veterans want you to bask in the "Afterglow" with them as they celebrate the 20-year anniversary of their watershed album this Sunday at Express LIVE!
