Giving 'Rock Concert' a Whole New Meaning in Bali

Third Eye Blind's Stephan Jenkin Performs at the Rock Bar at Bali's Ayana Resort and Spa.

(8/17/2009) Stephan Jenkins, lead vocalist of American alternative rock band Third Eye Blind (3eb), presented a one-night-only concert on Thursday, August 12, 2009. at the "Rock Bar," the stunning new open-top bar built on natural rocks above the Indian Ocean in Bali at the Ayana Resort and Spa.

Perched on a rocky ‘stage' jutting out from the cliff-face, Jenkins gave a solo performance of tracks from the band's new album ‘Ursa Major,' their first album in six years. Acceding to audience requests, Jenkin also played his past hits, including "Deep Inside You" and "Semi Charmed Life."

The front man of the two-time Grammy-nominated band was visiting Bali after headlining Indonesia's largest music festival, Java Rockin Land where 3eb played before some 22,000 fans. Seduced by the beauty of Bali, Jenkins made the spontaneous decision to play in free concert at the Rock Bar for local fans, as he prepared to re-group with the rest of the band to officially release their new album on August 18 in the U.S.A.. The band is scheduled to do three shows in San Francisco, New York and West Virginia – all within the next 10 days.

"We came to Bali for the surfing and diving, and this is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen," Jenkins said. "We've worked really hard on the new album and are now heading back to the States to officially release it."

Complementing Jenkins seaside performance were appearances by DJ Zoe Noa from Amsterdam, Japanese saxophonist Chika Asamoto and a dramatic "fire-breathing" performance by local daredevils.
