They ruled alternative rock radio in the ’90s with hits such as “Fall Down” and “Walk on The Ocean.” On Wednesday, Nov. 1, you can hear those hits and more when Toad The Wet Sprocket plays a free show at the Blind Tiger Biloxi.

The band will play on a new stage on the Blind Tiger’s green space next the Great Lawn at Harrah’s with the Mississippi Sound and Deer Island as its backdrop.

“We are thrilled to host a band like Toad The Wet Sprocket — we hope we can do a few shows like this a year,” said Blind Tiger Biloxi’s owner Thomas Genin.

Toad The Wet Sprocket is currently on a tour that celebrates the 20th anniversary of their 1997 album “Coil.”

“I don’t listen to my own stuff, but I think that album holds up well,” Toad The Wet Sprocket singer Glen Phillips said in an interview with the Sun Herald. “I’m proud of that album.”

Wednesday’s show will feature a retrospective of the band’s career, including selections from 2013’s “New Constellation” and the 2015 EP “Architect of The Ruin.”

Phillips said fans of the band shouldn’t expect new material any time soon.

“We like to get together and tour during the summer,” he said. “But I don’t think that we have any plans to make a new record, at least not an album — we still write songs together and we may get together to do another EP sometime.”

Genin said VIP cabana packages are available for the show. The cabanas seat 10 people and food and drink packages are included.

“We want everyone to come out and hear some music and have some great food and drinks,” Genin said.
